5 Months Old

Eliana is 5 months old! :) She is just too sweet for words! I LOVE going to get her when she wakes up from a nap. She gives the best smiles and giggly grins! I pick her up and squeeeeeze her tight. I hope that keeps her this little forever. I rub my face against her warm fuzzy head and take in the sweet smell, kissing her all over her soft cheeks like its a kissing contest! I just can't get enough.

I also love rocking her to sleep and looking down on those chubby cheeks, long eyelashes, and precious pink puckered lips. Her warm lil body fits so perfectly on mine. She happens to be the cutest girl in America. Bet you didn't know that.

You are still an easy going lil thing...always going with the flow with hardly ever a fuss. You went to church for the first time (I know, that's embarrassing!) and you exceeded our expectations! Yesterday we went to MOPS and it was your first time in childcare. Again you did great and had no problems taking a little nap and taking your bottle. You went on your first airplane ride. You went swimming in the pool for the first time. Oh, and you had your first illness- well, I don't know if you would call it that or not- hives on the back. Unexplained, and only hives, but we did go to the doctor to check it out. It was really weird! but you seem to be over it. Anyway, it's been a big month for you!

Still off and on sleeping through the night. And naps have gotten shorter (argh). It's okay though because you are a lot of fun to play with! :) You love to play toys!! You cant keep your fingers out of your mouth and you are very interested in our food. I am holding off on letting you eat though...you have the rest of your life for that! Till then, you can keep licking your lips! It is pretty cute to see you grab for our cups and even Alex's. You have found your voice! Wow, girl can screech!
And this is your favorite place....looking out at the trees. You will stay here for quite a while.

And like I said in the previous post- you are rolling over both ways, playing in your exersaucer, and your hair is really growing in! Well, a little bit! :)
And we are almost ready for the next size up clothes (3-6 month or 6 month) but we are still squeezing in. Its a toss up! Probably need to do it! It feels like she is gaining weight like a champ every day- I know this because the car seat carrier is getting quite heavy....you should see me wrangling Alex and carrying her. Quite comical actually.

guess who made her smile and then ruined the picture by being the blur in the corner :)

cars sticker for going to MOPS and being a trooper (more on that to come)

I love you to the moon and back little sister.

Happy 5 months!! Hard to believe. I keep thinking she is 3 months old. Love the pic of her looking out the window. It is just so peaceful.

She is getting so big, playing with toys, really? I must see her! I loved your description of how much you love her at the very beginning of your post, you are such a good mommy AND a good blogger!

What a great post! I'll scoop her up any day, you get tired of her. And just so you know, I haven't stopped kissing my boys cheeks either. One day the whiskers will prevent that, but until then...
