5 Months Old!

Dear Haven,

Another month gone by.  And another month of L-O-V-E.  I just can't get enough of you.  You are such a happy baby and so easy.  I am excited to go get you every morning and see those sweet smiles when you see me standing over your crib.  I love your snuggles in the morning.  You are so happy when you wake up and you love my kisses.  Thank goodness b/c you get a lot of them!  You've tried lots of new things this month!  You love the play mat with the toys that hang over your head, you have started playing in the exersaucer, and you can sit in the Bumbo.  You love a little rattle Gammie gave you too.  You have discovered how to make a high-pitched squeal and you show it to us often.  Sometimes it is when I'm not paying close attention to you, and sometimes it's just for fun.  You are really aware of Copper now.  You watch him walk around the living room and sometimes can't take your eyes off of him.  He doesn't know what he's in for!  This past month has been more of a challenge with sleeping.  After a trip to OKC and messing up your schedule, you started waking up in the middle of the night and it took a good week to get back on track.  Then a week or two after that, you started waking up in the middle of the night hungry.  And you went from going longer between feedings, to wanting to eat closer together.  So Mommy's diagnosis is a growth spurt!!  I'm hoping my little 10 hour sleeper will return soon!  You are wearing some 3-6 months clothes, and 6 months.  We will probably need to take a peak at the 6-9 stuff pretty soon to make sure we're not missing any of it if you can fit in it already.  Breaks my heart every time you grow out of something, the time is just going by too fast!  But at the same time, you are getting more and more playful, interactive, and giggly so I do love that about you getting older.  You love your hands... constantly putting your thumb, a couple fingers, or practically your whole fist in your mouth.  You recently found your feet too.  So I usually have to make you let go of them to change your diaper.  You rolled over yesterday morning!  I was beginning to wonder if you would ever do it again since you hadn't since that first time.  We have a fun month ahead, and I hope it drags on so I can soak you up.  I love you so much Haven Jane!
