FIVE months!

Hello All!

My sweet girl is now five months. It's so crazy that next month she will be half way until her first birthday! Time really is flying. I went back to some of my first posts after she was born and thinking about how small she was a mere five months ago!

Here is the big girl today....
We are officially about to bust our of our apartment. We moved from a two bedroom to a one bedroom so we can buy a house in Columbia before we move home and save some money! A mortgage and a rent is going to be rough for a while, but we are downsizing. It's all very exciting because soon we will be out of the Army and back home living in Columbia and I'm sure you all know how excited I am about that!

Five month milestones {some may be the same as four, but all just as exciting}:

-eating solids! we have not found something she doesn't like yet. i have been giving her solids twice a day in-between her 6-7 oz of formula. the winners right now are sweet potatoes and carrots. i started out mixing rice cereal, formula, and the baby food- she loved it. now we are moving on to just baby food. once we find out what she likes I will try to make on my own {TRY}.

-if you notice the girl is not wearing any shoes or socks. she WON'T keep them on and we have a bunch of lost socks, but not because of dryer. she kicks them off everywhere and she kicks off her shoes. her leg strength is crazy. i eventually gave up.

-she is rolling over both ways, but seems over it now.. her favorite is sitting on the couch. she isn't quite sitting up on her own yet, but we are working on it.

-she grabs EVERYTHING and it goes directly into her mouth. including my hair.. she also likes to grab your face, but it feels like she is trying to scrap  your skin off, but cute just the same.

-she is laughing and talking so much! she wakes up taking.. not crying which is great! she thinks both me and Tyler are so funny. which, we probably aren't, but as long as she thinks so...

-she is sleeping about 11 hours. she goes to sleep around 7:15 ish after a bath and has been waking up at 6am and then going back to sleep for about another hour.

-she is wearing 6 months clothes and some 3-6 months. size 2 diapers.

-Tyler weighed her on our own scale and she was about 15lbs!

-she enjoys her feet very much, especially in her mouth.

-she is starting to notice Riley. reaching our for her and watching her... Riley seems to want nothing to do with her and just walks away!

-no teeth yet. i am just waiting....

Well, as I am writing this she is getting antsy and probably hungry....
