5 Months!

7 Jun

 

Today, Chloe is 5 months old.  This seems insane.  In one month, she will be half of a year old.  People always tell you that the first year goes by too fast and they are so right.  It’s corny, but it really does seem like it was just yesterday and she was a 6 lb 14 oz. blob of cuteness.

Chloe’s precious personality has blossomed this month and it’s so fun to watch.  She is hilarious and knows what she wants.  And isn’t shy about letting you know.  

Things she likes right now:

  • Placemats.  Specifically, the ones on the dining room table. They have a weird texture and it started as her just feeling them, but has now progressed to throwing them, eating them, smiling at them, etc,.  Hunter did a little photo shoot with his phone today:

  • Pajamas.  This has been going on for months now, but it’s still true.  When she sees her night gown, she grins from ear to ear.  Those legs start kicking and she starts breathing hard.  
  • Bedtime.  I guess it goes with the pajama thing, but it’s precious. Instead of getting super cranky before bed like a lot of babies, she gets really happy.  It’s your best chance at getting big laughs out of her.
  • Eating.  This girl loves to eat.  Around month 3, I was sort of scared that she wasn’t too happy about it, but she is now an eating (and growing) machine.
  • Going new places.  She loves to look around and see new things.
  • Being outside. If she’s upset, all you have to do is walk outside for a few minutes.
  • The jumparoo.  She figured out how to jump in it a couple of days ago and now she’s unstoppable.  
  • Grandpa and Nana.  They have a contest going about who she likes best, but she likes them equally.  
  • “Flying.”  If you make her an airplane, she will squeal.
  • Hearing herself talk.  This girl makes crazy noises.  She talks to her toys a lot, but the cutest thing is when she talks to herself.
  • Naked time.  This is easily her favorite time of the day.

Things she doesn’t like:

  • Naps.  Today was a good day, but usually she’s not the best napper.
  • Getting dressed.  You’d think I was poking her eyes or something.  Screams abound.
  • Tummy time.  She. Hates. It.  She hasn’t rolled over and it’s probably because she hates tummy time so much.  I put her down on her tummy every time I put her down to play, but it doesn’t last long.  The pediatrician told me not to worry about it, just to keep at it.  She’s about to sit up though, so I’m not too worried about the rolling over thing.  Any advice on getting her not to hate tummy time?
  • Being held with her head on your shoulder by anyone but me.  I think it’s because she napped on me for so long like this, but she isn’t happy unless it’s me.
  • Teething.  Poor baby.
  • Being in the stroller like a big girl.

Anyway, I had more pictures but my computer ate them.  Needless to say, this little girl is growing.  She is such a joy and I’m so glad I get to spend every day with her!
