Hollyn, you are five months old today. I'm so in love with this age you are at... I just wish I could freeze time.
Let's see what you've been up too...
We went to the doctor today for your five month check up and you weighed in at 15.6 lbs (still 50-75th%), you were 26in long (75-90th%...coming down to earth a bit ;), and your head was 40.25cm (still my little peanut head at the 10th%). The doctor said you are advanced for your age since you've hit a lot of the 6 month milestones...
You have discovered you can fold in half to reach your feet and you've decided those tootsies are quite tasty.
You are sitting up with very little support.
You have become quite the mover and groover... one way or another you wiggle around and you have recently taken advantage of your rolling ability, realizing you can get from one side of the room to the other. (Not sure mommy is ready for your mobility). Between your wiggles and strength, it's pretty tough to keep your play mat in one piece ;)
Your daddy turns... wait for it... 30 this week! So we threw a 1920's ("Say goodbye to your roaring 20's") theme party for him. (Grammy and Grandpop watched you so mommy could play hostess but you made your debut)
You got to participate in your first Christmas baking day with the girls.
|You giving Aunt Kristy some love|
You had your first picture with Santa...
And second (I wasn't so happy with the first).
When we went to Bass Proshop to see Santa, we also checked out the giant fish... you were quite impressed.
You have grown into your jumper and really like it.
You are discovering your voice more and more and you love to squeal... sometimes I can't help but egg you on ;)
You have always loved to be sang to... especially by your daddy... and especially when he makes up silly songs for you (so I had to sneak this video).
|You love your tiny pillow pet from Grammy and Grandpop|
Your smile and laughter is so contagious! You bring so much joy to our lives and watching you grow and learn is the best gift we could get this Christmas!
