5 Months!!!

I can't believe that Kylie was 5 months old yesterday!!!!  She is growing and changing so much and just amazes me daily.  So here are some things about Kylie at 5 months....

Kylie laughs out loud pretty often and it is wonderful, kiss her on her belly or by her ears and she will break out in smiles and often laughter.  I so love her laugh and always laugh with her. 

Kylie loves to eat and has added butternut squash and avocado to her growing list of favorite foods.  She's going to get to try bananas soon!

Kylie loves playing in her exersaucer and smiles so big when it makes noise when she's playing with the toys, it keeps her entertained for a long time.  She still loves playing on her mat on the floor and seems to enjoy having quiet time by herself  sometimes and just looking and playing with her toys.

Kylie is rolling in both directions (think she was already doing that at 4 months, but didn't go back to look). 

Kylie LOVES taking a bath and finally doesn't even mind having her hair washed.  The bathroom and I both end up soaked after she has had a bath!

Kylie isn't sitting up on her own yet, well she can for just a few seconds, but she is wanting to so bad!  If she's in a reclined position she tries to pull herself up to an upright position.  We practice sitting all the time and propped up she does a great job, I'm sure she'll be doing it on her own real soon.

Kylie is sleeping good at night, most of the time, though I suspect that teething caused a rough night a few days ago.  She is in bed by 8:30 and sleeps until somewhere between 6-9 the next morning.  She's drooling a lot, chewing on everything, red cheeks (which I just read can be a sign of teething) and the list goes on with all the "typical" teething symptoms, she has them all except for any sign of a tooth breaking thru.

We've been busy around here!

The last several days sure have been busy and Kylie is still recovering!  Friday, we had dinner with a friend and Kylie enjoyed all the gossip and girl talk :)  Saturday, we went to a fish fry for my dad's birthday (a couple months late), but at least the weather is so much nicer in October than in August!  Kylie seemed to enjoy being outside and all the attention she got, she was fine with different people holding her.  Saturday evening, she stayed with my parents so Chad and I could go to a movie.  This was my first time to go see a movie in a very long time.  We then all spent the night at my parents on Saturday and came back home on Sunday.  Kylie has been going to bed early the last few days and taking longer naps during the day, I really think she was just so tired from being so busy.  I made her a onesie and a bow for the fish fry and then I never even ended up getting a picture of her :(  It was really cute and she even wore her fishing hat.

her face looks awful, but she loves squash!

she is now sucking her thumb all the time

The New Make-up Color For Fall

Kylie is modeling the new color of bean and sweet potato, apparently it works great on your lips, eye lids, and eye lashes.  It is easy to apply with the back of your hand, just rub your hand across your mouth and smear it over your eyes.  No worries if it gets in your nose, apparently that's in style this season also.

Kylie tried sweet potatoes yesterday.......she is not a fan!  She ate a few bites, then wouldn't even open up her mouth, I finally got another bite of sweet potatoes in her mouth and then she started gagging.  I got the point after that!  I did mix the sweet potatoes with green beans later and she loves that combination, she is such a green bean fan!  So for now, she's going to get them mixed together.

What a pretty bow :)

 this bib says it all and couldn't have been more appropriate today!
finally after a couple of naps she was happy
