Whew! It has been a busy couple weeks. We traveled to Champaign, IL for Thanksgiving. It was lovely to spend the holiday with family. Then, as soon as we got back to St. Louis, it was time to start preparing for Christmas. As usual, the years are short and the days are long.
In the midst of it all, our baby girl turned 5 months old. Everyone tells you that the time flies by and that’s true. I have to say, though, it seems more true for Kate than it did for Olivia. Maybe it is because I have another child to share my attention or maybe we are just busier as a family, but gosh, wasn’t she just born yesterday??
Kate smiles, giggles, and belly laughs. She squeals and “talks.” She loves to play peek-a-boo and thinks the noises I make during dinner (choo-choo, vroom, etc) are hilarious. But nobody, and I mean nobody, can make her laugh like her sister can.
Baby girl rolls over, stands on your lap with support, and can sit supported. She’s started to use her jumper seat and high chair. She eats rice and oatmeal cereals as well as squash, sweet potatoes, green beans, pears, bananas, and avocados.
Our girls are so sweet together. There is nothing we are more thankful for than them.
