My Little Bit,
We are 5 months into this crazy thing called life and time with you is getting sweeter and sweeter, though I am missing those newborn snuggles already...call me crazy, but you're so cuddly and cute that I could just eat you up all day.
Growing Like a Weed. I SWEAR you seem so much bigger than your sister was at this age. You eat practically all the time and it's showing with those cute dimples and pudgy little limbs. You drink 6 oz bottles every 3 hours, and then eat some type of grain with dinner most days (rice cereal and oatmeal are all we have tried so far). This week, we gave you squash to sample and you were a big fan, so it's on to start tasting other veggies this next month. I forgot how much fun--and mess--come with starting to try big kid foods, but I love it because it's so exciting to see you tasting new things for the first time. For inquiring minds that want to know, this was the last week you received breast milk, and honestly I'm a little sad about it, but happy too. Mommy seems to be all dried up, and Penny the Pump will be retired to her happy resting place. Full post on all that weird breastfeeding stuff to come soon, I assure you, because for some odd reason, everyone is always so interested in that aspect. As far as other goodies, you're still in 3-6 month clothing and have inched up to size 2 diapers.
Button, you bring so much joy to our lives and we thank God for you each and every day...you are amazing and we love you more than words!OXOX
