Five Months

My Sweet Carter J,

What a fun month we've had! You are well on your way to being mobile, rolling over is a breeze and now you get your knees under you and wiggle and pull yourself forward and around in circles. You love to sit up, and stand in your exersaucer and jumper. Your legs are always kicking!

You have loved trying new food and already have a few favorites, among them are sweet potatoes, apples, chicken, yogurt, bananas. Not so favorites include peas and peaches. You also still love the oatmeal cereal I've been feeding you.

You still hold the record for the happiest baby ever. Anyone who crosses your path at stores or at the gym comments on how happy and good you are. Even the picture taking lady at the DMV commended me on having such well behaved children. Probably the biggest complement a mom could receive.

You are still a phenomenal sleeper, bed time is 7p and you sleep a solid nights sleep until 6:30-7:30a. Nap time around 10a, 1p and 4:30p. You still like to take a paci before you fall asleep, sometimes you fuss a bit but usually just fall right to sleep. I usually nap you in your own big crib, but you still sleep at night in our room. I could move you, but I simply don't want to. I love having you right there next to me. There have been a handful of times that your nap is unusually long, I'll go in to check on you and you're just laying in there playing with your feet and blowing spit bubbles. Such a happy girl.

You are so patient while I tend to Reagan or get things situated around the house. You have your own special high pitched squeal to remind me that you are waaaiiting. 

We have our first "road trip" coming up, driving across the state for a little visit. I'm curious to see how you do in the car for a long period of time. I remember making the drive when Reagan was a baby and it was Hell. So, kinda anxious to be doing it solo while Daddy is away at work. 

I love you so much my sweet little nugget. I can't imagine my life without your smiling face.
