My little love is growing up!!
This needs to slow down, it's going by waaaay too fast.
It's been the best five months ever-
She always brightens up our days and makes life so fun.
We finally got her in to see the pediatrician-
she's a whopping 16 pounds 13 ounces,
85th percentile for weight and length,
and a gigantic 98th percentile for head circumference!!
That's ok, more of that precious face to love on :)
She took her shots like an absolute champ
and even had enough smiles to finish out the day with a photoshoot.
Little Scarlett Claire is getting more social and interactive;
nearly everyone she meets says she's the happiest
baby they've ever seen and that "she never cries".
Hahaha, little do they know :)
But it's true that she is very good-natured and smiles nearly all the time.
I was so excited to try out my new backdrop for some pictures,
but once we finally got it all set up, it was cranky nap time.
I decided I'd put her in front of it just
to test out a couple quick snapshots,
and she surprised us all when she stopped crying
and gave lots of big smiles!
She makes this photography thing pretty easy :)
Aren't her thighs magnificent??
Scarlett rolls from her tummy to back
but still can't quite go the other way.
She loves to grab, especially our faces and Chris's arm hair,
and she's getting quite strong...ouch.
We're also working on sitting up,
maybe by next month's post she'll have it down!
She started solid foods for the first time
which was pretty adorable, and extremely messy.
She also loves to stare at people,
she will just sit and study your face forever.
Some of my favorite moments are sitting in silence and looking back
into her big gray-blue eyes.
I just adore being her mama!!
Happy 5 months, little munchkin!
