Baby Ellie at 5 months



Baby Ellie, today you are 5 months old!

I cannot believe it has been five months ago since midwife Peggy helped me push you out into the world. I cannot believe that it has been five months since you made The Muffin a big sister and me and Daddy the parents of two little girls.

Your sister remembers when you were "squished" in my belly. She remembers me being in labor with you and she tells me that I was being "too loud when the little girl was saying be quiet". (She remembers the picture of a little girl dressed as a nurse that starts the "quiet zone" at the doors leading to the birthing center) She remembers the day that you were born and is still so excited to see you every morning when she wakes up and she still loves you so very much.

Now, what are you up to??
You sit a little bit by yourself, but you always reach for something and fall over.
You reach for everything.
You love your keys and your little baby.
You still wake up two or three times during the night to eat.
You only take two naps during the day, and you sometimes fight sleep.
You like to squeal (wonder who taught you that?) and laugh and smile, which delights your sister.
You get so excited when someone comes over to pick you up.
After several attempts, you like to eat rice cereal and you love bananas.
You roll from back to front.

We love you Baby Ellie!
