5 months

Umm....cant believe its been 5 months, seriously 5 whole months....man how time flies.  It honestly feels like just yesterday Dennis and I were driving with tear-filled eyes to the hospital knowing we were going to meet you soon. Ever since getting pregnant I have been one emotional woman I tear up so easily and I think your daddy has gotten a little softer too;) I mean I tear up and get emotional about EVERY thing. You bring us so much joy, we are truly smitten and enamored by you! We will do pretty much anything to make you smile and giggle (even dance around like crazy and make funny noises:)

I spoke too early about you sleeping great, the 4 month sleep regression stage hit our house fo sho! We first had to quit unswaddling you because the day after you turned 4 months old you decided you wanted to roll while swaddled and ended up face planted in your crib....freaked this momma out. We weaned you to the Aden and Anais swaddle sack which we used for just a couple weeks but you are such a wiggle worm I wanted you to have your legs available when needed, so footed PJs it is and man are they cute:) I'll probably work on a whole post on the whole sleep regression in the near future. Want to make sure and document every little stage even the not fun parts like you not sleeping:) haha...the sleep regression lasted about 3 weeks and this past week I think we are finally out of it...hallelujah!

We get compliments on your pretty skin tone and eyes on a regular basis. This is not to toot my horn but yours...I wish I could take credit, we did nothing to create your looks...we were just obedient and God created you just as he planned!! Psalms 139:14...you are fearfully and wonderfully made.

You love: being held, your Nuk pacifier when you are sleepy, Praise and worship (You squeal and smile the whole time)-it's my fave...you even raised an arm this week:), being talked to, your exersaucer, cooking with mom in your bumbo, kicking/playing with Zoe, being outside, you are so curious and love looking around

You don't love: being put down sometimes (I'm thinking the separation anxiety may be starting early), sitting in poop diapers (don't blame you)
