My little Bean Bean (that is what Mommy and Daddy call you) or Gilly Mean if your having a particularly bad day! You are getting so big! At your last doctors appointment you were almost 16lbs. A few weeks ago you started grabbing your feet nonstop and a a few days ago you started rolling over. I finally saw you do it today for the first time though and you looked so proud of yourself! I was proud of you too!
You also got your first tooth a couple days ago, You were really cranky for a couple days and wouldn't sleep the night before our big camping trip and now I know why.
You have been going to bed so good at night, as soon as I put you in your crib you take your blankie and your pacifier and go right to bed. Your still not sleeping through the night though. You get up around 3 every morning to eat, I can't wait for that to stop!
We started you on babyfood a few weeks ago and you love it. So far I think your favorites are banana's and green beans. You make such a a mess while you eat I have to take your clothes off and feed you in only your diaper. You love to grab at the spoon and try to feed yourself.
Speaking of feeding yourself.....you do! You can hold your bottle all by yourself (as long as your not tired) and get very upset if anyone tries to hold you and feed you. Daddy and I need to feed you in your bouncer so you dont have a melt down!
You can fit into 6-9 month clothes now too. Every where we go people ask how old you guys are and dont believe us when we say you are only 5 months old. You are wearing size 3 diapers already too.
You and Finley love to watch Elmo in Grouchland too. It is the only thing that will keep you quiet for a little while. Thank goodness for Elmo!
You have actually been less of a grouch since your tooth came in, you smile at everyone now and seem to be overall a much happier baby!
I can't wait to see what the next month is going to bring. You are growing up so fast, I packed away your newborn shoes today and wanted to cry. You are getting so big so fast. It seems like yesterday having a baby was just a dream to me and now I have you and Finley. I am so blessed.
Mommy loves you!
