5 months old....

Happy 5 month birthday Catherine Ellis! We can't believe it's been 5 months since she joined us. We've had such a wonderful time getting to know our daughter and learning all the fabulous things this life has to offer all over again. What a treasure! Our cup runneth over!

Catherine Ellis has a new trick most every day now. Here are some of the things she has accomplished in the last month:
  • She can roll from one side to the other easily
  • She can make the razzing sound with her tongue
  • She's discovered she can make all kinds of noises and that she does indeed have a voice!
  • She can hold her own bottle
  • She can hold her feet and pull them towards her mouth
  • She can find and suck her thumb with ease
  • She's cutting four new teeth (we think, it's seldom she lets us get a peak)
  • She's standing a lot
  • She's close to sitting up and when she is not sitting up she's constantly pulling forward to try to reach the upright position
  • She's eating rice cereal a few times a week
  • She's starting to pay attention to the television
  • She's still wearing 0-3 month clothes, but some 3-6 months due to the need for extra length for those long legs
  • She likes the exersaucer and trying to jump up and down on her feet
  • She can grab an object and now hold on to it for some length of time
  • She is starting to recognize her name
  • She's riding in the stroller without her car seat (meaning she's steady enough sitting up that she doesn't need assistance from the car seat)
  • She's sitting in the highchair at school with her older friends while they eat
  • She's interested in the food Mommy and Daddy eat -- she watches us literally take the food from the plate to our mouths...she's memorized
Thank you Lord for all of your blessings and for our healthy, vivacious 5 month old!
