Sarah: 5 Months

 I can't believe our baby is 5 months old already! She is such a beautiful, happy girl.  People keep telling me she is the cutest baby ever, and I don't even try to argue with them. It is true. She is adorable.
 Here is what is going on with our little princess at 5 months:

  • I don't have an exact height or weight measurement, but she is definitely a chunk. Her cheeks just keep growing!
  • She has sprouted at least an inch of blonde hair that sticks straight up from the top of her head and is starting to curl at the ends.
  • This was a very bad sleep month, but she can finally sleep swaddle-free.  She is also usually taking at least 1 good nap a day.  Hallelujah!
  • Daddy put her to bed for the first time by himself. There was some screaming involved, but when I got home they were both sound asleep in the rocking chair.
  • She is a champion eye patcher. 
  • Chomping on celery is a favorite pastime.
  • She can roll both ways and is quite frustrated that she can't figure out how to get anywhere once she is on her tummy.
  • Her favorite toy is her taggie bunny, and it goes to bed with her every night.  Thanks, Nicole Richter!
  • Some of her other favorite things are singing songs, being outside, tickles, and playing with daddy.

Daddy's Girl

Sarah has turned into a total daddy's girl. She saves up her best smiles for when Daddy gets home from work.  I know she is truly grumpy if even Kelson can't get a smile out of her.  It is pretty much adorable.
All ready for church and looking precious.

Playing on the floor with Daddy is pretty much the best.

This Sunday was opening day for baseball, so Sarah and Kelson wore their matching Padres gear.   Her team spirit must have given the Padres good luck-they won! Her daddy is already turning her into a baseball fan.
One Sunday, I left Kelson with a grumpy Sarah.  I came back a few minutes later to see this happy girl.  Kelson is a wonderful Daddy!
