Adelaide Jane: 5 Months
Well you kicked started this month with a roll off of mommy & daddy's bed at 6:30am. Now how I envisioned the day going, but God is always full of little surprises. You cried. I screamed. I cried. You smiled (eventually). Obviously there went my mother of the year award.
On a more positive note, you are moving all over the place. From your back to your tummy then in circles or scoots then to your back. Not only are you moving with your arms and legs, but you are officially driving. Yes a pseudo Collins wouldn't be a pseudo Collins without a pair of wheels. Your first car: a pink Mustang GT convertible. You have perfected the hydraulics on the car along with the sound system. You are particularly good at reversing, and I am terrified that you are a New Yorker at heart as you know how to use the horn on the car quite well.
Not only are you increasingly mobile with each day, but your taste buds are growing exponentially. We started solid foods earlier this month and you LOVE them. You like rice cereal. You like oatmeal. You like apples, bananas, pears, and peaches. You don't really care for prunes which mommy doesn't blame you for at all. We started veggies this week and you are all about some carrots. Soon you will be enjoying a steak dinner...
A big event happened this month. Mommy went on a weekend girls trip. It was our first time apart for more than just a few hours. I cried as we were pulling out of the driveway thinking about how we hadn't ever spent the night away from one another. BUT daddy whipped up a fun weekend for the two of you and kept me in the loop with pictures and videos.
We are charging full speed ahead into the new year with our social calendar. We go to Gymboree once or twice a week where your teacher, Ms. Mary, says you are very advanced! We sing and dance and play. We also go to mommy & me group once a week where you squirm around with other munchkins while the moms talk. We are quite the social butterflies :)
One of my favorite things about this age is that you blow bubbles and make sounds by pressing your lips together. It is so cute and amusing to the both of us. You also love when mommy blows on your belly making a funny sound. You crack up laughing. I just can't get enough of your laugh.
I love you more and more each day little princess!
Mommy (and daddy)
