5 months

Dear Miss A,

You are 5 months old and active as can be. What happened to that little baby who used to lay still in our arms? You now wriggle, jiggle and squirm like crazy! I always knew that babies were busy creatures, but I am convinced that we have the deluxe model....and the frightening part? We haven't seen nothing yet.

You are a master at rolling. Nothing can slow you down. Recently you are working on perfecting your next tricks - sitting and crawling. You are tripoding (that's sitting with hands on the floor for support) like a pro and getting up on all 4s occasionally. I won't be surprised if you start sitting or crawling soon.

We love love love watching all of your curious little habits. You grab at everything in sight. At mealtimes, you study every bite we take. Just a few more days, buddy. Although, admittedly Papa has been known to sneak you some tasty licks of fruits & whatever he's eating. Just the other day he gave you a piece of apple to nibble on and you actually grabbed his hand and shoved it into your face. Haha, you are so goofy.

Your hobbies include: tasting everything, blowing raspberry bubble, playing peekaboo, taking long naps, doing a 180 in your crib, and developing a mean stranger anxiety. (...we have got to work on that last one.)

Anna, back when you were a newborn I wanted to freeze time and have you stay itty-bitty. But they are right when they say things just keep getting better, because I am loving this moment.

You are the best, Banana!

  1. Oh! Gorgeous photos!
    It's so fun reading (and comparing) Ephram with your descriptions of Anna. I can definitely relate to the wiggle, jiggle and squirming! It really does just keep getting better though. Amazing.
