Cinco de Avery!

Avery is 5 months old today! Wow, I can't believe how fast time is flying. I know, I know... everyone is ALWAYS telling me, "enjoy her first year, it goes by so quickly"... but the reality is, it's going by a lot faster than "quickly". At 5 months, Avery is:
-rolling over from her tummy to her back, and trying to go the other way
-in love with her daddy :) he can always make her smile or laugh
-wearing 3-6mo clothes, and they're just really starting to fit
-happiest in the bathtub
-really starting to reach and grab for things that she wants: especially cell phones and the remote
-able to sit propped in her Boppy pillow
-sleeping in her crib- she decided that she hated the PackNPlay 2 weeks ago... :(
-still nursing every 3 hours during the day and 3-4 at night
-drooling... a lot :)

She really is a good, happy baby... unless you're talking about sleep. Then she's not so good. She hates to nap, and lately, 4:30-5:30am seems like a good time to be awake. But, when she's not napping, she's happy.... just really, really tired.

Oh, and she's started eating baby food here and there... peas, sweet potatoes, apples, and pears so far... I think we'll do Avocado next.

We had her pictures taken last weekend, and she didn't do so well. She just stared at everyone with her mouth open. Here is a photo from the studio blog:

We only got one of the poses (not the one above), since they weren't that great, but she'll be getting her 6mo pics in May, so hopefully those will be better!

You can see the rest of our March/April pictures at:

I really want to be a better blogger than I am. And I want to blog about more than just my sweet baby girl. But I know that's all you guys really care about anyway :)
