5 Months and a Video

I think I say this every month but 5 months?!
Well yes, I guess it's true.
Evelyn is 5 months old!
This age is honestly so fun! I would like time to SLOW DOWN and keep her at this age for at least 2 months instead of just one! I know, I know. We have lots of fun stuff ahead of us but it's just going way too fast! I am all for the growing up adventure, I just wish time would slow down and we could enjoy this stage for a little longer! She is the perfect size to snuggle and smooch til your lips fall off! Her cheeks are pretty much irresistible and her thunder thighs are starting to get a little more thundery! Perfection!
I will be the first to admit, having a newborn was hard! Really hard! But I can't help but miss having a teesny little snuggle bug! Especially since baby Harlow came to the world!
I seriously feel like I JUST had a baby! Like this whole thing is still really new to me but somehow she seems to be growing so fast and getting so big! I feel like I should still have a newborn! It's a very weird feeling!
Well lets get to it, let me tell you what our little sugar plum is up to these days!
She hates when Mommy eats/drinks dairy! She was fussy, fussy, fussy and I couldn't figure it out until I just tried the no dairy thing and it solved the problem! It made a HUGE difference and she became this super HAPPY, almost perfect baby most of the time! We weren't sure if it was a coincidence or if it was really the Dairy so I had some older milk (with dairy in it) in the freezer that I got out and fed to her and she was up crying all night long! So, no dairy for me! It's hard! I really miss Ice cream! Really bad! But it's worth it! Happy baby= Happy Mommy!
She is so close to sitting up by herself! She sits up for a couple of seconds by herself before she starts to tip over! Such a big girl! I'm not sure if I'm ready for her to do that! But it IS really fun to watch her grow and do new things!
She has found her feeties! She loves to play with them all the time!
She loves when we read to her and looking at books!
We got a nice little break from the teething monster which was sooo very nice but it's back and from what I can tell, it's hurting her pretty bad! poor baby!
She loves being outside and going on walks! We go on a walk almost everyday and if there is a day that I don't get out, i feel like she knows it. She's gets more fussy and squealy!
She is such a little squealer! She squeals almost all day long! Not mad or sad or anything, just wants to hear her voice! It's funny and cute most of the time but sometimes, just sometimes, it can get a little (or a lot) annoying when it happens all day long or when we are at church and it's suppose to be quiet time!
She likes to play with toys but gets bored of them pretty quick. Sometimes she will sit and play for a while but most of the time she sucks on her toys and then throws them and squeals for me to get them for her! ha ha
She is such a Daddy's girl! This girl LOVES her Daddy and lights up and gets so excited when she see's him! It's quite cute!
She wakes up SO happy and smiley! When I go in to get her in the morning or from a nap, she smiles and kicks her legs and waves her hands! It's pretty fun and the BEST way to start my day!
She blows out of almost EVERY outfit! This girl can POOP!! UGH!! We have tried just about every Diaper, moved her up in size, everything! Nothing helps! Oh well. Good thing I love her so much because I would NEVER clean up this much poop for anyone else!
She is the perfect size for Daddy to start throwing her all over the place and she loves it! So does he! I, on the other hand, don't enjoy it that much! It is cute to hear her laugh so hard and there is nothing that I love more than watching Jarom play with her, but it scares me SO BAD!
She is such a good girl and these have been the hardest but BEST 5 months of my life! I am so grateful to be able to stay home with her all day and that I have a husband who works so hard to make that possible! We are so in love with this little girl!
Apparently I forgot to delete the "directed by" etc. boxes on the video! Oops!



This post totally describes how I feel, and totally describes maddie. I also wondered if she was allergic to dairy, but then my doc said if she were then she wouldn't have good days and bad days, she would just have all bad days. BUT- I haven't been having my tall glass of milk everyday because I ran out or my cookies- haha.But I've replaced it with tons of strawberries and milk chocolate, so wouldn't that be a strong dairy too? It's so confusing I hate it. Seriously everything you said about Evelyn is just like maddie, the feet, the happy when she wakes up, wanting to hear herself talk, all of it- so funny. It'd be so fun if we lived by eachother. THe only thing that isn't hte same is- the blowouts- she did ALL THE TIME when she was a newborn, but then she finally stopped. She still has them, just not NEARLY as much. Otherwise everything you described is IDENTICAL! and same with all my feelings towards everything. so fun. love you!

So cute Steph, you are a darling mom and it was so fun to see you in action. Believe it or not, it is still hard for me to comprehend that you and Jenni are parents. So great though! I love those two cutie pie girls and can't wait to watch them grow up together.
