5 months!!!

{haha, this pic makes me laugh!}

Better late than never right? Reese turned 5 months on Thursday and I am just now getting around to posting...oh well! We played with Babs and T this weekend and I will blame them on the lateness!

This has been a very fun month! She is very sociable and loves to smile and screech {the beginnings of laughter}

We broke free of every sleeping aid {which equals growing up :( boohoo } and have moved onto the world of footie sleepers. I mean, have you ever seen anything more adorable??
She is still wearing mostly 0-3 months clothes, but occasional 3-6 month and definitely 3-6 month sleepers!

She is wearing size 2 diapers.

We went to the doctor Friday and she weighed exactly 14 pounds! I'm a little sad I can't do the percentages and stuff this month!

She has definitely begun to show interest in food, going so far as to attack my face when a food item/straw gets near! She has tried sweet potatoes, carrots, oatmeal, and rice cereal. I am not really pushing the food thing yet, but I have a feeling we will start implementing that shortly!
Mom and I got lucky and hit up a consignment sale this weekend. We picked up some new toys that Reesie was loving!
She can roll over and some days wants to. Other days, she could care less.

She sits leaning forward for about 20-30 seconds on her own! The girl realllllllly wants to sit and stand. When she is on her back, she pushes up on her elbows and strains to sit up!

She is still sleeping 12 hours at night. Also, she is not a great napper during the day. She fights sleep soooo hard {hmm, can't imagine where she gets that from!}

She likes playing peek-a-boo.

Still spitting up after every single bottle {sooo annoying} and drooling like a mad woman! Also, no love for the pacie, but would swallow her fist if she could!

She's been looking mighty cute in orange and blue these days!!

Reesie, I can't believe you are 5 months old! Where has time gone? In no time at all, I will be writing your 1 year post. I am not prepared for that! The sad thing is, it's happening right before my eyes and I can't do anything about it! I can already see that you have an independent and stubborn streak. That's ok for now, but in about 13 years, I'm gonna need you to keep that in check. I'm happy that you will let anyone hold you, but I am also happy that you light up when I walk in the room. Not to be selfish or anything :). Your daddy gets the biggest smiles out of you. I love how you bury your face on my shoulder when you laugh really big, as if you just can't even contain yourself!
You are not a cryer. Unless food is involved. Or you are put to bed against your will. {expect at Babs and T's house. Please explain yourself} I love our evenings together on our bed. You show me those gummy grins and stare at the ceiling fan.
We are so blessed by you, Peanutty! You have made us into parents! No one else has ever done that before! We will do everything we can to protect you and provide for you. We know you are on loan to us from our Father and for that we are eternally grateful! You are such a testament to the power of prayer and faithfulness! Can't wait to see where life takes you, sweet girl.
Happy 5 months!!!!
