5 Months!

Happy 5 month birthday baby!  (One day late because the computer didn't want to cooperate yesterday, I'm sorry!)  I can hardly believe you've been here, with me, for the past 5 months and it's even harder to believe when you consider you've been, with me, for well over a year when you count "tummy time."  You never cease to amaze me.  The littlest things are the biggest things to a Mama.  Who would have ever thought I would find poopy diapers and baby toots the cutest thing in the world.  And may I just say, waking up to your little voice and sweet little angelic face in the morning is pretty much the best thing ever - probably shouldn't tell Daddy that.  You haven't grown much this month.  You're still weighing in right at 13 pounds and are about 26 -ish inches.  You've rolled over from your stomach to your back, twice, on the same night but will not, for the life of me, repeat it.  We've decided to wait a little bit longer before trying solid food because you're not that interested yet.  Maybe this month, or next.  OK, now for your part.  Your likes and dislikes are not that much different, but so we don't forget, I'm going to let you list them all again. 

Here are the things I love:

1.    I love being held, this part isn't new, but, sometimes I even like being held when we're sitting down too - but back to not usually!
2.    I love the sound that plastic makes.  (Think Mommy digging into a plastic bag of reeces pieces)
3.    I love to laugh when I find things that are silly - like puppies.  The puppies are definitely the funniest things in the world.
4.    I love my Teddy.  I'm kinda over my snail though.
5.    I love rattles, and all things that make a rattling sound.
6.    I love walks - a lot (but not so much when it's freezing out).
7.    I love talking to Daddy on the phone/skype - but it's still kind of confusing.
8.    I really love my co-sleeper!
9.    I also love my Your Baby Can Read video - I just moved on to video number two today!
10.  I love listening to the book Daddy recorded for me.
11.  I love sucking in my lower lip.
12.  I love waking up in the mornings.
13.  I love my fingers.  And my toes, but not as much.
14.  I still love bouncing and dancing.
15.  I love walking, jogging, and elliptical riding.
16.  I love silly sounds, all kinds.
17.  I still like making Mommy look silly trying to make me happy, and oh how well she does it too!
18.  I love the sounds animals make, and animals in general.
19.  I love music, right now I'm really digging my Christmas CD.
20.  I love sitting up by myself on the couch or in my swing, sometimes, I still prefer being held.
21.  I still really love milk.
22.  I love talking on the phone - especially to Grandma.
23.  I love my Bjorn.
24.  I love staying up late, just not as late as I used to, 1030 is my normal bedtime now.
25.  I love licking Mommy's plastic water glass.
26.  I love ripping Mommy's glasses off her face.
27.  I love looking out windows at the world.
28.  I love splish, splashing in the bath.
28.  I love wiggling around on the floor, as long as you don't put me on my tummy.
29.  I absolutely adore standing, with assistance of course.
30.  Having visitors, especially relatives, rocks.  It means more loving arms for extra snuggles.
31.  My favorite book, aside from Daddy's of course, is How Do I Love You?
32.  I love getting out of the house for awhile to people watch.
33.  I love talking and speaking my mind.
34.  Mommy and Daddy are still pretty cool too.
Here are the things I detest:

1.   Daddy being gone.
2.   My fingernails being clipped.
3.   Sleeping, especially during the day.
4.   Tummy Time.
5.   Shots.
6.   My mittens.
7.   Socks and/or shoes.
8.   Having Mommy put my onesie on first thing in the morning.
9.   Waking up from the few naps I do take, I'm usually crying.
10.  Q-tips
11.  I'm usually not too big of a fan of my car seat.

I think that about covers it everybody.  Mama and I love you all for reading!  Come back soon!

Oh, and Mommy and I did exercise yesterday, 32 minutes on the elliptical again, bench press, leg extension, sit-ups, and push-ups, so we might be lazy today.  We finally posted our cupcakes from last week over at my other blog too, Kaia's Cupcakes, so go check them out.

awww!! B.B. just turned 8 months. It goes SO QUICKLY! I know everyone says that, but it's true. I found that after four months it started getting really interesting! There are so many firsts ahead, congrats!

Kat said...

Khara, what a beautiful letter to your little girl! I just loved it.

That is all.

Elizabeth-Flourish in Progress said...

I'm totally smiling right now. Kaia seems like she's got a personality and I bet she had the best smile to match.

Happy 5 months, babe!

Alex said...

Awww, this is a nice spin on the "likes" posts. I "like" finding out what your baby likes!

Thanks to all you ladies for your kind comments they all made Kaia and I smile!

Shell, I hope your kids at least squirm less for you now?

Mamabear, I know, so fast! And your little B.B. is looking more and more grown up everytime you post pics!

Kat, thank you! I'm sure you're going to beat us all out when it comes your turn.

Elizabeth, lol, thank you! She definitely is a character. I get a kick out of her :)

Alex & Libby, I'll do my best to enjoy every minute!

Stephanie, don't we all?!

Thanks Jamie, I hope so!
