stella j. five months.

hi, baby,

you're five months old today-ears pierced, grouchy, and asleep on the floor with a paci in your mouth...this is a new thing.

rolling is your mode of transportation and you have made it clear solids are not going to be an option quite yet-were still checking in with you about once a week on that. you gobbled avacados till we figured out your belly was not in agreement with them.

you still nurse, with a very small amount of bottled breastmilk a month. even though the other day you decided you hold your own bottle like a big girl. there is no stopping you now.
sophie the giraffe is your best friend. or ellie. maybe both.

i wrote you a song. well, really i changed most of the words to twinkle twinkle-leaving pretty much just the twinkle twinkle part and now i am waiting for daddy to make a jazzed up tune to go with it. then it's all yours.

you sleep in your own room still no problem-and now, gasp you are a belly sleeper. all you need is dino to cuddle and sing you his song and you little birds chirping in the background and you drift into dream land. oh, and no swaddle, sleep sack, or restriction of any kind.

you wake up now and wiggle around in your crib for awhile before you need me. it is fun to listen to you gurgle at your toys and wonder at your toes.

you're perfect. we love you.
