5 months old!!

So on Monday, Evie turned five months old!!  I know I'm a few days late on this post, but we were too busy enjoying the fun that is a five month old.  But here goes,

Time is flying by and Evie is changing a lot. 

She is still a two nap a day baby, and if she is like her sister will continue to be until she is one year.

She has a little baby "pot" completely built by breastmilk, and she wouldn't have it any other way.  Trying to get her to take a bottle of breastmilk is a little bit of a struggle.  It's straight from the tap for Evie.


She LOVES to play on her kick mat,


and exersaucer.


Recently she has enjoyed sitting in the bumbo with a tray of toys, as long as she can see you though.  She's definitely a girl who loves to know what is going on around her.


She gurgles and talks all the time.  Her squeals are as high pitched as her sister's.

Smiling is her natural state, until you get off schedule.  Like most kids, she likes her routine and deviations are difficult for her.


She can roll from her tummy to her back and is very close to rolling from her back to her tummy.

Every time you change her diaper she grabs her feet, and just this past week she managed to get them to her mouth.


She can sit up by herself for a few seconds.

 




She LOVES her big sister.  She smiles the most for Elizabeth.




She is a snuggle baby.  At her early morning feeding we usually move her into our bed.  She cuddles down and gently falls asleep, while having a snack. It's the sweetest thing. 

Rocking calms her down and helps her drift off to sleep.

Most importantly, she is a wonderful, sweet, and perfect little baby.  I can't believe we were blessed this way...and twice too.

Aww, what a cutie!

It's amazing how babies change so much so quickly. It's just not fair sometimes.
