How are you FIVE months already? I can't believe you are almost halfway to your first birthday!
13 pounds 12 ounces
24 inches long
25th percentile - you are still my tiny ballerina!
Size 2 diapers
3 months sleepers, 3-6 month clothes, and I have to roll the pant legs up for all of your pants!
This month Ainsley :
Wore your first pair of shoes :) We wore your white shiny mary-janes to church. You only tried to pull them off once!
You got your first ear infection :( We had to give you amoxicillin twice a day for 10 days and you HATED it. You've basically had a cold for 6 weeks so the doctor prescribed hydroxyzine along with infant tylenol too. It was a pretty miserable time for all of us. You hate getting oral medications!
You had your first Christmas! Mommy and Daddy didn't get you much. Between everyone in the family getting you presents, we just got you some small toys. We got you Sofie the Giraffe, a ball, some bath toys,and a cat that makes "crinkle" sounds and has lots of stuff attached to it (Lamaze brand).
Attended your first Christmas Eve service at church. You did fairly well considering it was an hour long. I only had to take you out of the service once and that was just to make your bottle. You were quite mesmerized by mommy and daddy's lit candles at the end. Thankfully you weren't trying to grab the candle!
You played Baby Jesus in the church Christmas play. You loved being on stage and watching the other children sing.
Visited Santa! You just sat there. Too bad because mommy loves screaming santa pictures. Maybe next year ;)
Went to your cousin Easton's baby dedication. Yours will be next month sweet girl!
To drool and blow "raspberries"... You drool so much that we basically have to keep a bib on you all the time
To watch Roxie - she's your first best friend
Playing in your pink exersaucer that grandma and pop gave you for Christmas.
To pull up to a standing position with the help of mommy's hands. You will roll all around but don't really like it that much for some reason. You would rather stand up instead.
Watching football with daddy
Making silly faces all the time
To have your cheeks kissed. It makes you smile.
For us to tickle you and laugh! You don't laugh very often but when you do, it's hilarious!
You are still such a happy baby in the mornings. Daddy normally has morning duty and he will feed, change your diaper and change your outfit. You love to smile and "talk" to him in the mornings.
At your check up appt for your shots and to recheck your ears.
