Giana Carson, you are 5 months old today :)! Such a big little bitty, hah! Mommy took some pictures of you this morning, my main struggle was keeping you from chewing on your hand and spitting up! Yep, honey, you spit up lots AND often! But it doesn't seem to phase you, so you would spit up, I would clean you, and we would keep on keeping on!
Not too many changes since I last blogged, since you were only 2 weeks shy of 5 months old at that point. Except since then, you have tried different foods! So far, you've had banana's, sweet potatoes, and peas. And to be honest, you haven't been IN LOVE with any of them! I thought you would love the banana's...they seem to be mediocre to you. The sweet potatoes may have been your fave...and the peas, well hey, I don't expect miracles, they are after all, PEAS, period. But you did eat them and we continue to offer you these things in hopes that one day you will just fall in love with all the wonderful world of FOOD has to offer!
These last few mornings when you wake up all squirmy, I've been putting you in bed with me. I know, I know, that's a big NO NO. But I'm very aware of you and I just love that cuddle time. Honestly, every few minutes you pop out your paci and I have to put it back in, so I'm not in a deep sleep. It's just nice to feel you in my arms and to rest my head near yours. And when you wake up, you're all smiley and trying to talk. You also love to grab mommy's face and give me kisses. You are 100% a mamma's girl, through and through! And I LOVE IT!
You are napping in your crib right now. That's also a special bonding time for us, just before you slip off in to dreamland. I always rock you and sing you songs. And through the singing and rocking, I sit and feel so blessed to have you in my arms. You (and your brother) really are my world. I don't know how else to explain it. There aren't words for the way you two make me feel. Sometimes I think my heart will literally just burst!
You are beginning to sit up somewhat. More of the "tripod" sit, where you hold yourself up with your arms. You roll over, but most times you get frustrated with tummy time and just throw your face down and cry. I don't make you suffer long, those little tears are the quickest way to get what you want, hah!
You continue to love your jumperoo and most times when I'm holding you, you're still in that jumping action. It's a great work our for mommy's arms :). You like your swing, you don't love it. But when mommy and brother shower, we drag your swing in to the bathroom and you are content to stay in it while we get showered and ready.
So, happy 5 months sweet pea. We love you more and more by the second! You are perfection in our eyes, beautiful, sweet, smart, dainty, just precious!
