Ava Rosemary is 5 Months Old!

Time flies when little ones grow and now Ava is 5 months old. She is growing well and quietly strong. Here are some of the things that Ava is doing now...
*She can roll over both ways and is quite content to be on her stomach now.
* She loves to grab our faces and grip them tight - I think she is trying to study us and tell us how much she loves us.
* She loves to look out the window at the bakery at all the cars whizzing past and she can sit there quietly for a good amount of time.
* She is still nursing and really seems to enjoy it - unlike Jasmine who didn't like to work for it.
* She doesn't like to be left alone in a room and she is vocal about it.
* She blows lots and lots of raspberries
* She has started babbling more now and puts her fingers in her mouth all the time.
* She is happy to be put down for her naps in her own crib and sleeps from midnight to 8 AM.
* She loves to interact with her parents and her sister and she lights up when someone she loves enters a room, often kicking her feet and smiling widely.
* She is such a happy baby - she smiles a lot and she isn't overly fussy - so long as she is being held.
* She is still wearing a size 1/2 diaper and even though she has chubbier thighs than Jasmine did, she is light for her age and she doesn't quite fill out the clothes, but she is long enough for them.
She is such a blessing in our home and we can't imagine our lives without her. Even Jasmine seems to want to take possession of her little sister often calling her "my baby". We took her to the school to be photographed for her 5 month mark and I haven't gotten the prints back yet so I will post the photo when I get it - stay tuned!
