Madelyn at five months is such a joy to us!
She smiles and laughs a lot. I've found her tickle spot, right on her chest by her armpits. She loves peek-a-boo and chuckles or looks back at us with a big open smile.
She has quite a set of pipes on her. She screams LOUD and HIGH (we've compared her to the melting witch at the end of the Wizard of Oz). Sometimes it's because she's happy and sometimes upset.
She is getting strong during tummy time and will pick up her head and look around.
She is reaching out and trying to grab things. She loves her toys, the octopus, giraffe and butterfly. She gets excited to see them coming.
She loves the exersaucer and has figured out how to turn the dials.
Her hair is beautiful, still growing (none of it has fallen out!). I can't quite tell the color of her eyes yet but they are getting darker and darker.
Sleep is becoming a bit of a challenge at night. Still waking up sometimes three times a night to eat. I'm not happy about that but we'll work on some sleep training once she reaches six months.
Here she is in the stroller. We've had some nice days lately and she's been able to spend time outside and even ride the big girl swing.
She is a great little cuddle bug and every member of our family loves hanging out with this little girl.
