Letter to Harper: Month 5

This is a little late b/c we've been super busy lately. This 5th month has been the best, little lady. You have learned so much and are really becoming your own person. In the past month you have had your first real cold (it lasted 2 weeks and was awful), but through it all you remained happy and smiley and chatty and even though you couldn't breathe you weren't that much fussier as I would have expected. We went through a bump with you sleeping through the night b/c of the cold, but you are now back on track. You made your 2nd (for a wedding) and 3rd trip (for the Constitution Square festival) to Danville to visit family and slept almost the whole way both times. You can now stand really well and the Excersaucer is your new favorite thing in the whole world. We call it your office and you can spend up to an hour in there playing around. You are still sitting well assisted and I think in the next month you will be able to do it on your own. You now look at books and can turn the pages, but mostly you just shove everything and anything in your mouth. I've taken to calling you my zombie baby b/c usually when I pick you up your mouth goes straight to my face to chew on my cheek or chin or neck or ear. What mommy and daddy are eating is really starting to enthral you, so soon we will start real food. Maybe your weight gain will slow down once we start the real food, you are over 18 lbs at this point, a really big girl!! Can't wait to see what month 6 holds!
And I have to post this picture, how uncomfortable does this look!

Lucy is only 17 pounds 2 ounces at 1 years old-too funny :) But Lucy's weight gain accelerated when we started solids-so be prepared!!! She's a doll-a complete DOLL!
