Five Months Old

I think I say this every month but I can't believe you are another month older already!! You show more and more of your personality all of the time. You are such a happy little girl and really the only time you get mad is when you are hungry or sleepy. Or, when you get tired of doing something. You give us this smile every time we talk to you and it just melts mommy and daddy. You are starting to love Khloe so much! You love to pet her, watch her and laugh at her getting the ball. You two will be best buds! It amazes me how much you are doing. Just this past week-end when you lay on your belly you start to pull your legs up and stick your butt in the air or push to either side in the position. Just out of blue you started doing this and we couldn't believe it. We are still working on sitting up without support and practice a little everyday.....getting closer! We just love that God placed you in our family! I kiss you all over all the time because I can't get enough of you:) Here is to many, many more months with our sweetie!!!!

*wearing mostly 3-6 month clothes and can still fit into a few 0-3 month
*eating 7 ounces every 3.5-4 hours and took your first bite of baby food (still trying to get use to it)
*lover of bath time, walks, being outside, anyone talking to you and kisses on your feet/belly/neck
* you are always wanting to suck on your hands, chew on your feet and love to basically put anything in your mouth
*your favorite toy is Sophie the giraffe and your doll toy that is real crinkly
*your first trip to the zoo was last week-I think the waterfall was your favorite thing. ha

We have been busy enjoying summer activities, birthdays, Fourth of July and just being outside!! I got a little behind on this post but it just creaped up on me. Slow down summertime! Harper, you are loving everything about this summer. You do so good wherever we go! And, you are such a little ham. You just cheese away to anyone that talks to you! At a July 4th party you just squeeled for 5-10 minutes straight. It was the cutest thing! You have found your voice and now you just squeel all the time! lol. Your cry is louder now but that was expected after working those vocal cords. We love seeing more of your personality shine and we just can't get enough of you!
