Amelia is 5 months!

Dearest Amelia,

Sweet girl, I love you so. You have brought us so much joy! I cannot imagine life without you.

You are 5 months! You are rolling so much we can't leave you near anything dangerous. And you move a lot while sleeping.  

You're sleeping better and you love sleeping on your tummy! And you've even been moved to your room. That was hard for me. I missed (and miss) your sweet snuggles in bed, but this is better for our family. I still keep the pack n play in our room and sometimes you end up in bed with us, but it seems you're making progress.

Off we go upstairs =(

Cheeks and lips.

We haven't started solids yet, but I think you're ready! You eye our food and will grab anything in our hands. Maybe we will try some before 6 months! Who knows...

No one makes you laugh quite like Oliver. You light up when you see him and it warms this mama's heart. I pray you two are close and watch out for each other.

You have another bottom tooth! It has really changed your smile and you are just so stinkin' cute!! You're doing well on the road with strangers, whether it's in the nursery or just being held. But, you'll let us know when you need Mama.

I mean...

When I hold you, you've started grabbing my neck and hair. It's adorable. Unless you pull my hair, then ouch. :)

You're taking a bottle!!!! I gave up for a little while then tried again and you rocked it! Good job, Sister Girl.

You still don't take a paci. I still try some, because it sure would help in the car, but no success. You sUck on your fingers and thumb, though. And while I'm not sure how I feel about that, if it soothes you at do you.

A train ride with the family and Thomas!

Amelia, you are the best, most snuggly, beautiful, sweet girl EVER. I thank God for you daily.  I am honored to me your mama.

May the stars always align for you...
