Five Months!

I choose to play my "pause time" card now. Thanks. We have been loving the life of this 5 month old. She is rolling like crazy, laughing a whole bunch, alert to the world around her, and inquisitive about anything she can put in her mouth. Mikayla is five months old!!

The big news for the month is the move from sleeping in her car seat to sleeping in her crib. She was given the "one strike and your out" rule when she tried to snake her way out of the bottom of the car seat during one of her naps. That was the end of that. We are still battling with her reflux. The chiropractic care is still keeping her off of any medicine at this point, but there are days where I feel we may need a bit more help keeping her comfortable. We shall see as the next few weeks go on...

Mikayla also decided this month that bouncy seats are for newborn babies and she is done being a newborn. Her fancy trick to let us know? Sitting up, while buckled in, and almost tipping the seat over. And that was the end of that...

Her new form of exercise is her jumperoo. She goes crazy in it. Squeals and jumps for as long as we will let her.

She is fascinated with books and could look at the different pictures all day long, as long as the pages can fit in her mouth :)

What will she be like as a 6 month old? I am not going to think about it. I am going to enjoy my days with this super cute little 5 month old because time stands still for no one...
