And Then It Was 5

Kennedy is 5 months old today!! I can't tell you how much her personality has blossomed the last month. She plays, copies, studies, and as always, is just so happy!!

She wants anything she can get her hands on. I can't text while holding her anymore because she tries to grab my phone. She wanted the camera pretty bad this morning as well:

 We've been working on her muscles to help her sit up and stand. She can sit up for a moment on her own but as soon as she leans back she falls over. But she'll get it eventually. She loves to stand and does for quite a while. She looks around with a huge grin. I think she likes seeing the world from a little higher up.






She's one smart cookie!! She watches everything and studies it and tries to figure out how to do it. It only took her one time of feeding her solids to figure out how to open her mouth and close it to get it off the spoon. And yesterday I was waving to her and she watched my hand intently then started to copy my movements with her own. Her hand wasn't facing the right way, but her fingers were going up and down like mine. Before we know it she'll be doing it on command!

She is the most perfect, well -behaved baby. She puts herself to sleep and she entertains herself in the morning while she waits for me to come get her. Rarely does she ever cry when she wakes up. I go in and she's smiles and kicks with excitement when I poke my head over her crib. This is the face I get to wake up to:

She's still kind of small for her age. Not super small, but she doesn't fit in 6 month sizes yet. She's still in 0-3 months for some brands. She also frequently falls asleep with her hands on her face. It's pretty funny. There's a photo below. We just love her so much and can't believe how big she's getting. We took a bunch of pictures this morning of her in her cute church dress that she's now big enough to wear. Thanks again, Kristie! And there's also some others cute/funny ones to enjoy.









We started decorating for Christmas and put together our list of things we want this year. I can't wait!! It's going to be extra fun to play Santa, even though she's still too small to know what that means. I'm just excited to spoil her with clothes and toys. She's got us wrapped around her finger for sure!!
