Five months!

January 17, 2010

The birthday girls has almost hit the half year mark.  I can’t believe she is five months.  I just can’t believe it.  She is growing so fast, while I am happy she is developing well, I am a wee bit sad every time we take a new birthday picture.  I just try to enjoy the moment and not think about it too much.  The other day I was baking, with Ainsley in her Bumbo reading me the recipe, and I had one of those moments where I truly felt like life was perfect.  I look forward to many more of those special moments with my lil’ fry.  Anyhoo, Ainsley is up to what normal five month infants are doing.

  • Solid foods–not a lover of them.  She eats them without incident, but just not that much of them.  She really is disinterested in food.  So bizarre.
  • Sleeps from roughly 7pm to 6am without feeding.  She is starting to take some naps during the day, but we have still not perfected the nap.
  • Flips around on the floor like a little monkey.  When you lay her down, she will flip, not roll, over almost instantly.  It’s like she takes it as a personal challenge to get off her back as fast as possible.  Then she will look around for mommy and flash her gummie smile to make sure you saw her trick!  It is sooo cute!   Then she gets irritated that she can’t crawl.  She is really trying to move.  Sigh.
  • Sits up on her own for a couple of minutes before starting to lean forward.
  • Still LOVES to be held.  But only by mommy and daddy.  She really does not like to be held by others.  We are working on this.
  • The traveling is getting better.  There is hope for a vacation!  Not soon, but someday!
  • Laughs hysterically.  When she gets on a roll, she will just keep laughing and laughing.  It is so sweet!

Here comes that flame again....

Happy Birthday to me!!!

Mommy and Ainsley!
