Our little Every Joy is five months old!
She's just starting to roll over from her back to belly. I came into our bedroom one nap time to find her awake on her belly (she was on her back) and I was horrified because if she rolled the opposite way she would have fallen off the bed. She's grabbing anything and everything she can reach. She's watching us while we eat and moving her mouth as if she wants what we're eating. It makes me feel really bad. She's pushing up on her hands while on her tummy, as well as on her knees, and rolling easily from her belly to back. She's fascinated by faces, and smiles at (most) everyone who smiles at her. But don't you dare hold her, she only likes to be held by mom or dad. She likes the color blue, she'll choose something blue over other colors. Daddy is the only one who can make her laugh. And she's a whopping 17 pounds!
To talk and yell
When people tell her she's cute
Her IKEA kitty rattle
Her Hazel Village animals
Grabbing her toes
Faces, and grabbing faces
To be on daddy's shoulders
The car seat, getting better slowly
Sitting, she just wants to stand
When she can't get something in her mouth
Or when she drops something she was playing with
Putting clothes on
