Zoey - 5 Months

What the what?  How has another month come and gone already?

Wah, wah, wah.  I know, I know.

- She won't have another well-check until 6 months, but I would guess she weighs a smidge over 12 pounds.  The (literally) little lady weighed 12 pounds on the dot at her weight/growth check two weeks ago.

- Wears almost exclusively 3 months clothes, but can still get her tushy in 0-3 month pants.

- A happy, happy, happy baby.  This girl is smiling all the time.

- Nicknames include Zo, Zo Zo, Zoey Bear, and Baby Bear.

- Sprouting more and more hair on the top of her head.  I'm not sure if I can still call her eyes "dark hazel."  They are really toeing the line with brown and I think brown is winning.  Sister has mommy's complexion, daddy's eye color, and mommy's eye shape.

- When holding her, my mom swears she's looking at me as a baby - but I'm not so sure.  I see a lot of Ryan and Camden in her.  

- Rolls all. over. the. place.  I don't think crawling is too far away.

- Usually (usually!) sleeps through the night after a 6:30/7 bedtime and a five o'clock-hour nursing session before waking up around 6:30.

- Takes three or four naps a day, anywhere from one and a half to three hours.  It's not at all uncommon for her to have one final little cat nap in the Ergo while I'm trying to make dinner.

- Remains the drool and spit up queen.  I'm always shocked (and excited) when she stays in the same clothes all day at daycare.  Usually I pick her up and she's on her second or third outfit of the day.

- Has started blowing raspberries with her mouth.

- Can hold her own bottle.

- Is chatty, chatty, chatty.  I hear her at least once in the middle of the night just wide awake and talk, talk, talking to herself.

- Rubs her eyes when she is tired.

- Is reaching for toys, grabbing at faces and hair.  Oh, the hair.

- Her feet and hands are still constantly in her mouth.

- Is super observant and loves to look around.  Her new favorite thing is to sit in her Bumbo seat so she can watch her crazy brother be crazy.

- Laughs for no one like she laughs for Cam.  Still thinks he hung the moon.

- Has started to notice the TV and loves watching baseball with Ryan.

- Has cried real tears a few times and it is heartbreaking to say the least.  Thankfully this doesn't happen very often.

- Watches us eat food like she's watching a good tennis match.  Her head just goes back and forth and back and forth tracking the food from our bowl/plate to our mouths.

- Had a few bites of rice cereal yesterday and I thought she was going to eat the rice cereal and the spoon too.

Oh, my sweet Zo Zo.  You are such a little joy and as sad as I am that another month has passed - I am so happy and grateful to be your mommy.  I love you so!

As with Camden at five months, it's now time to start mentally preparing for the big "half" birthday next month.  So much ugly crying.

Take Luck,
