Ellie - 5 Months

Dear Baby Girl,
5 months old already?!  Time is flying and you are growing like a weed, right before our eyes!  It seems like just yesterday we were bringing you home from the hospital on that crisp October day.  But then again, it's as though you've always been a part of our little family!  How funny how it seems like both at the very same time.
What a month you have had!  We celebrated your very first Easter!  It was such a beautiful and wonderful weekend, and we started several new traditions as a family of 4!  Your first year of holidays is just so very special! 
You also got to go on your first shopping trip to a mall with Mommy this month!  How fun!  You slept the whole time, but I know you'll always remember it ;) 
Spring is here, so we've spent a lot of time outdoors visiting the Zoo and the Botanic Gardens.  You love riding in the Ergo, and are as happy as a clam when we are out and about.  You are flexible and easy-going, which is such a blessing!  As long as you have your favorite lovey doll and a blanket, you are good to go.  No pacifiers for you!  You are not a fan! 
This month, we also introduced your first solid food - bananas!  You really weren't sure about just smacked them around in your mouth looking at us like we were absolutely crazy.  We'll keep trying. 
Ellie - you are just the most perfect baby and we are so thankful for each and every moment we have with you.  We especially love your crooked smile, your fuzzy bald spots, your expressive eyebrows, your tiny toes that you like to grab, and of course your joyful personality. 
Things you love: 
Bouncing up and down  
The play mat
Being held in the Ergo
Giggling with Andrew
Things you don't love: 
Getting out of the bath
Nose Frieda :(

26 inches long 
We love you so much sweet girl!
Happy 5 months!
