Harper is 5 months old!

As I say each and every day....where has the time gone?!?!?  I try to cherish each and every moment because I know they are passing by oh so quickly!  It's so sad, but so rewarding at the same time.  How do all of you mamas out there do it?  Does it get easier with each child??  I sure hope so...this is torture! lol  But, I'm so glad she still lets me love and kiss all over her....because I still do a whole lot of that everyday!  She is our life....

At five months, Harper is:

-Eating cereal once a day.  She likes it best w/ juice or formula mixed in w/ it.

-Just moved up to a size 2 diaper.  They're big, but the ones....well you were filling them too full!

-Still sleeping fabulously!  She goes to be anywhere between 7:30 and 9:30 and sleeps until anywhere between 6:30-7:30 in the morning.  (Yes, I know I'm so lucky...blessed!)

-She has a great personality and smiles and talks all the time!

-She takes 3-5 bottles a day, 6 ounces each!

-She wears 3-6 month clothes.

-She began sleeping in her own bed this month!!!!!!!!!! (This was VERY, VERY hard for Momma!)

-She loves her big girl bed and stretches all out and gets comfy! Makes Momma sad that you don't need her to sleep anymore! :( 

-She knows her momma and daddy! (And, secretly, I think she's a little bit of a Momma's girl!)

-She still loves her bath!  Loves it!

-She drools and chews on her hands and toys all the time.  I'm expecting a toothy anytime now!

-She's been to Gatlinburg/Dollywood twice!  She's a great traveler and loves going anywhere.

-She's the easiest baby I've ever seen!

-We are more blessed than she'll ever know and we love her more than anything in the world.  We wonder what we did before she came into this world and what we did to deserve to be her parents!  

We love you baby girl!  You're the light of our lives!

xoxo, Momma & Daddy
