Month 5 in pictures

Dear Natalie,

You're 5th month brought about so many exciting changes for you. As I said yesterday, you LOVE cups:
You are more interested in turning the pages of the book at the piano than playing, but that's ok, we'll get you playing in no time! 

You like to pretend you're a big kid and sometimes you get to sleep in our bed (mostly on weekend mornings)
unflattering...but cute.

We started putting you in the high chair and booster seat! You still look so tiny in it!
You were a champ during your photo shoot with Aunt Cassie!

You're a big girl holding your bottle all by yourself!

Your smile gets me every time
We celebrated our first Mother's Day

You learned to sit up on your own
We got you a jumper

Daddy and I decided, you are allowed to date when you're 40:
Mommy and Daddy's eyes are bigger than their stomachs (but not for long...)

We played with our new friend, Sophia!
You like to take naps on the couch

We had lots of visitors, who were excited to come see you, like Uncle Matt:
 and Aunt Corinne and Uncle Chris:

We're loving the beautiful Spring days!

Each day gets more and more fun, while presenting its own new set of challenges. I can't wait to feed you more and different foods, and you are going to start crawling any day now, I can tell! How have you been in our lives for half a year already?! In some ways it seems so fast, but in other ways, it feels like a lifetime.
Does this mean it's time to start planning your first birthday party?!


  1. LOVE this post! It reminds me of Life Magazine which was mainly pictures. If a picture paints a thousand words than this post is quite verbose but priceless. You are far too liberal with Natalie letting her date at age 40. We told you and Melissa you had to wait until you were 42. Kids these days! ;-)

  2. Awe she is so cute and looks so much like you! I love how she sleeps with her arms up! :)
