5 Months Old
It's about time I share some pictures and tidbits about our little princess. Addison's nicknames include: The Princess, Addi-Boo, and Bugaboo. She is 5 months old already, I can hardly believe it. She is a very easy baby. She loves to be looked at, and talked to. She is in heaven when daddy comes home, because he immediately picks her up and carries her all over the place. In contrast, I hardly ever carry her around, I would never get anything done! Addison is such a smiley, happy baby. The only time she fusses is when she's hungry, tired, or needs a diaper change. She is quite the trooper hanging out in her stroller while I play tennis or go running. Fortunately she loves to be outside and have the wind blowing in her face. She enjoys her tubby time, even having water poured on her head-just as long as I'm singing to her all the while. Her favorite songs are The Wheels on the Bus(motions done with her feet instead of hands), our Goodmorning song, and a song that I made up to the melody of My Humps! She started eating food last week once we realized that she is very interested in that stuff that daddy is putting in his mouth at dinner time(she of course sits on his lap at dinner every night.) Carrots were first, and today we will start in with peas. Hopefully this will jumpstart a love for vegetables. She gets so excited when we call daddy on the phone, she just smiles and jabbers away. Recently she has started trying to eat the phone, so we may need to improvise. Last week she discovered her feet and plays with them all the time. 2 days ago her feet and mouth met, and have become best friends. Chloe and Cassie absolutely adore her. They read to her, sing to her, play with her, take her on walks, and get her out of her crib. Oh and they change her diapers (wet only). She scooches around a little bit on her belly, I do NOT look forward to her crawling. Maybe we'll just keep her on her back so she doesn't learn to crawl quite yet! Most importantly, she has been sleeping through the night 7-7 for a month now, with an occasional 5am snack. I feel well rested most days, and if not, it's my own fault...
All in all, she is heaven sent. We are so blessed to have her in our lives.
