How can you be five months today?

Enjoying your Sophie

Courtney Elizabeth, you have your big siblings watching over you!

It is hard to believe that at 5:34 pm this evening you turned five months old. In ways the months have gone really slow, like for instance all of these sleepless nights. And fast, just because the calendar months have just flipped by so quickly. I hardly had a moment to update your baby book (well I did get to it, but is not as thorough as the other kids' books...sorry my love)
You are laughing, giggling, teething, gah-ing, and just a loving little girl. You are a month away from your first rice cereal, you take bits of formula from a bottle whenever I need you to. You have started to sleep through the night in the last week. BUT you go down quite late. But, tonight you went down just before 10 pm. We like that! Keep doing that OK!
You love your Sophie the giraffe, but we know you love the attention you get from your five siblings way better. You are in 12 months sleepers, and size 3 diapers. You hardly spit up, but when you do you soak me to the skin. You usually poop right before we head out somewhere!
You are strong in your core. You try to pull yourself to a 'sit.' You also roll immediately from back to tummy and we think you are so cute with your double dimples. One on each side.
It is hard to believe that we will celebrate your first birthday at the end of this year.
You my darling Coco, are true love.

Five months today? Five months of joy on this end, but of course we have the EASY part! She is a darling and a delight. I just love the way she sucks on my forearm when I sit her up! She is our baby darling that's for sure. xxxooo

Holy smokes!! Can't even believe it! Every month that passes blows me away!!
I think she will always have a special little place in my heart! It's not every day you get to watch one make their way in to this world.
Happy 5 months CoCo!
