Five Months

Five months ago today, our little Adelie was born.  Oh, how time flies.  Adelie is now weighing over 14 lbs.  She is still in size 2 diapers, her 3-6 month clothes, and her 6-9 month pajamas.  She eats 5-6 times/day, takes 2-3 naps, and sleeps 5-8 hours at night, although lately has been throwing some 4 hour stints in there, just for fun.

Likes:  Adelie is still the happiest baby ever.  She loves people, attention, music, being outside, her feet, bath time, having things to grab, and her big sister.  Books are still fun, and her current favorites are books with flaps, books with textures, and books with sounds.  Her treasure chest toy and her sea creature toy are top of the toy list, and she loves her apple rattle.  She still enjoys watching her mobile and her ceiling fan, and works very hard to look at the television or the computer screen anytime they are on.  If we are out and about, Adelie isn't afraid to skip a nap so she can soak in the excitement.  Her thumb is pretty okay too.

Dislikes:  Adelie's dislike list remains short...and relatively the same.  She doesn't like being hungry, tired, or cold.  Being strapped in her carseat when it's not moving (especially when she is hungry or tired) is not fun.  And when she is feeling bored or lonely, she will let us know.

Skills:  Adelie is my little mover.  She is a proficient roller (primarily to the left) and will roll across the room quickly.  She can also scoot a little on her belly using her legs.  She can sit for a minute or two at a time, but still falls over when she reaches too far or gets too excited.  She loves to stand up when held.

Pretty pleased to have rolled under Grammie and Grandpa's bed

Playing with her feet is one of Adelie's favorite past-times.  Adelie will grab anything she can get her hands on (including hair, jewelry, noses, glasses, and napkins) and, if possible, will then try to put it in her mouth.  She can activate her cause and effect toys, and has even turned on her own mobile once.  She is starting to try to turn pages of books.  She is a super-star when it comes to splashing water all over the bathroom floor during bath time.  Adelie can 'talk', laugh, and squeal...and her smile can't be beat.

Feet are awesome!!

There is nothing I love more than seeing my baby smile.  I can't imagine my life without this little ball of joy.  My heart is full!
