Miss C is 5 months old today!


Holy cow! Where did the time fly? Let's just get moving onto the latest, shall we?
1. Miss C is now officially an ankle biter. Yesterday, while sitting in DH's lap, playing, Miss C leaned down and wrapped her chubby little arms around his foot and put her wee little teeth into his ankle! It caused more laughter than anything else, but yes, folks, its official, Miss C is an ankle biter!
2. Miss C loves to play with her toes, her feet, her hands, everything. Check out this new photo of her tasting her toes. Too cute!

3. Miss C has 6 (I kid you not!) teeth coming in, the four bottom front and the 2 top front. The bottom front have broken through but are still quite clear so they are hard to see. The top left one has a point through and the top right is swollen. Poor kid! She drools like a champ though and doesn't complain much. She does use everything she can get her hands on to help her. She even likes the "Super Soothies" pacifier and holder to chew on!
4. Miss C is much better at balancing while sitting up. She sits in her boppy to play. This has in turn led to her sitting up in the bath tub so now we are giving her baths in her little tub but without the back support. Instead, she gets Mommy back support. She likes it this way, her ducky is always at hand!
5. Miss C is more fond of oat meal than rice cereal. This didn't take long to figure out. We started her off on rice cereal and a week or so later decided, what the heck, give oat meal a shot. I kid you not, she loves it!
6. At first glance, Miss C is not fond of green beans (see photo below). This is, however, the first time she tried them and she had recently gotten up from a nap. I think that she will grow to like tons of stuff, but we couldn't stop ourselves from taking this photo. It reminds me of how DH looks when I offer him green beans!


7. Miss C is much more communicative. For example, when she needs something, she leans towards it and gets it. If she can't reach it, she grunts for us to get it for her. When she is hungry, if I am holding her, she will grab my face and suck on my chin. She got her care provider's nose the other day because she "missed a sign" that Miss C was hungry. She will even pat your chest if she thinks that will help!
Well, that's pretty much it for today. Miss C caught a little new care provider bug. Just a little stuffed up, well, more like runny snot, but you know how it is. We've got her leaning just slightly in her crib and it, as usual!, helps keep her clear so she sleeps well. All we have to do now is get over this one hour time shift. It seems to take Miss C a little while to adjust. Its really such a neat process!

Yep, hard to believe she's already 5 months old. She is definitely her own person! And loads of fun too.
