Where Would You Like To Go?

Lyllian ~ 5 months

Miss Lyllian ~
How you fill our hearts with joy!  When you are awake the room is filled with giggles and grins and you make anyone smile who is near you.  You are SUCH a happy baby!
     This month you have started grabbing onto your toys/teethers and you hold on tight!  It's pretty enertaining to watch you throw your arms around when holding a toy...we're waiting on the day when you bop yourself upside the head!  You also started rolling over this month.  

About 2 weeks ago you rolled from your tummy to your back and this week you started rolling from your back to your tummy.  You sleep best on your tummy and now every morning when I come to get you - you're rolled over, smiling up at me, just a sucking that thumb!!

And child, you do LOVE sucking your thumb.  You don't care which hand as long as one of them is near your mouth.  You rarely use it to console you...but let's be honest you don't need much consoling most of the time.  Have I mentioned you are SUCH a happy baby?

Lyllian, you weigh 14lbs 8oz (38%) and are 26 inches long (84%)!  You are wearing 3-6 month clothes and some of those are still a bit big on you everywhere except in length!  You do not like having socks on - you have become quite the expert at kicking them off!

You really enjoy laying on your back or sitting in your chair looking around at the world...especially at your big sister.  She made you belly laugh for the first time this month...and we even caught it on tape!  She is as enamored with you as you are with her.  If she is anywhere around, then you're going to be watching her and could care less about anything else.

You are on a pretty regular 3 1/2 hour schedule & sleeping from 7pm - 4am, and then you'll go back to sleep until 7:30 after I feed you.  You are such an excellent traveler and don't mind being in your car seat at all...which is completely different than your older sister!

I can't believe you are 5 months old already...time is flying and we are loving every moment.  Completely grateful that He has given me you!  I love you!
