Time always seems to fly by. Jellybean is 5.5 months old. Her face is filling out, she's putting on more baby chub and her sweet personality is emerging more and more.
-When I come in to get her in the morning or after naps, she never fails to greet me with a smile. She so often has a look on her face that says quite clearly, "I love you Mama."
-She is starting to get pretty good at rolling around and turning in a circle when she is on her stomach.
-She is mad for anything I have in my hands, or really anything she can get her hands on. We've started her on rice rusks and I'm really looking forward to starting her on more solids as it's obvious she's very interested.
-She loves to sleep on her side, snuffling her owl and will occasionally cry out in the night if she has lost her grip on this favorite friend.
-She is very close to sitting unsupported. I think by next month she'll be sitting fine and possibly starting the beginning stages of crawling (time to re-think our baby-proofing).
-She LOVES to "razz" (buzz her lips/spit)
Buddy is just about as bright as a 2 year old can be. We purchased a pack of sight word flash cards. He about blew me away when he recognized most of the first 20 words that I pulled out of the pack. There is no doubt that he is on his way to reading. It's so exciting to see him learning and growing every day.
