On Thanksgiving, November 26th, Leah turned 5 months old.
We love little Leah. She is trying so hard to sit up and I'm sure it won't be long. She is so observant. She loves to find the tags on her toys. She loves any sort of paper and the look of the remote - I don't think she has touched it yet but really wants to. She is so interested in our eating also. She watches us so closely. She gets so excited when she sees a toy coming her way that she starts shaking. She is so easy going. She loves to be held and will always fall asleep in my arms. She continues to eat well and sleep well. Leah is my biggest fan and I look forward to her smile all the time. She seems very social. She rolls all the time and spends a lot of her floor time propped up on her elbows on the floor. She isn't swaddled anymore and I love when I put her in bed she rolls to her side. She typically goes to be awake but drowsy and puts herself to sleep. She is spitting up less but drooling more. Most things that Leah gets a hold of goes straight to her mouth. She spends a lot of time in her car seat but always seems very content. I can't believe our baby is growing up already!
**On December 14th Leah had a doctor's appointment. She was 5 1/2 month old. She weighed 16 lbs 8 oz and is 26 1/2 inches tall. She received 3 shots and cried super hard. I hate to see her so upset and scared. She is too sweet. She is a healthy baby and we are going to introduce sweet potatoes, bananas and pears into her rice cereal diet.
