My Baby Girl
February 3rd marked 5 amazing months since you were born and boy has time flown! I absolutely love your slobbery kisses, high pitched squeals, open mouthed smiles, and little giggles that daddy and I try so hard to get! I love spending every day all day with you and couldn’t imagine not being able to do just that. You are still a very happy, sweet baby. You love to be talked to, held and played with. You love your entertainment bouncer, chewing on anything and everything you can get your hands on, watching t.v. any chance you get (which we try hard not to let you do just yet), and standing up. You hold yourself up so well on your tummy and have been rolling back and forth for a while now. You also can sit up on your own for a little bit, but mommy stays really close in case you start to tip over. You’ve been making noises and squealing, but recently started to make sounds like you’re trying to say words to us, like “ba-ba-ba”. It’s so cute! You also have started reaching for daddy and me sometimes and it just melts our hearts. Daddy has been trying and trying to get you to laugh since you were born, and sometimes, just sometimes we’ll get a giggle or two out of you, but it’s pretty inconsistent. You are still on a really good 3-4 hour schedule during the day and normally sleep all night. Naps for you are really inconsistent. Some days you go down great and sleep well for an hour or two. Others, you fight it and mommy doesn’t know what to do. You were doing well with your laryngial (sp?) malaysia (where your larynx flaps close down and restrict airflow causing you to work hard to breath and make gasping noises) but then had several episodes in a row, a couple of them pretty scary, so we went back to your doctor and changed your acid reflux meds. It has seemed to help since you haven’t had any episodes since. We are praying that God would heal you of both issues and very soon! :) You are such a beautiful baby and such a joy to be around. Daddy and I are completely in love with you and not a day goes by that we don’t look at you in awe of our great God who created you and blessed us with you. Our prayer is that we always, always point you to the One who loves you and knows you better than we do. And because these posts aren’t as fun without pictures, here are some recent ones..ok, maybe I should say ‘here are A LOT of recent ones’!
