Happy five months to the happiest girl ever! This girl just loves life. She is happy 99% of the time and if she’s not, there’s a reason. Hungry, tired, or wet. Or sometimes she just wants mama. She likes to stick her tongue out of the left side of her mouth and kind of sucks on it, which makes me think she feels a tooth trying to come through.She has teeny tiny feet (like her Nana). She still wears newborn shoes. And I love how she’s always curling her toes and rubbing her feet together. She’s really discovered her feet in the past few weeks. Zane was the same age when he found his feet.Funny girl. This is the same face she makes when we stand her up. Like she’s so surprised! She is really strong, too.We met some neighbors the other night and they said, “Look at that pretty red-headed baby!” I love it. When I was little, I got in trouble at the baby-sitter’s house for biting a little boy. When my mom asked me why I bit him, I said (very matter-of-factly), “Because he has red hair.” So my mom joked that I would have a red-headed baby. Don’t worry, I haven’t bitten her…yet!
At five months, Hollin:
*weighs 16 lbs
*has just moved up to 3-6 month clothes
*wears size 3 diapers
*has red hair and blue eyes
*drools all day
*has found her voice and likes to squeal!
*smiles all the time
*went through a couple of weeks of poor sleep, but is now sleeping ~8 hours at night (9pm-5am and then back down until 7:30 or 8).
*has found that her bows and shoes make great chew toys.Here are a couple of pics of her and Zane at the same age. I don’t think we’ll ever get their baby pictures confused! They look so different. And the bow kind of gives it away, too.
