5 Month Old in the House!

Saturday marked Little Peachy's fifth month. She is working hard at honing the skills she has been picking up along the way. Her large and small muscle control is really coming along. She definitely is able to grab what she wants (and when she reaches her goal, into the mouth it goes.) While she is not sitting on her own yet, she does sit up tall with assistance. And she still enjoys standing with us supporting her. She is much more able to entertain herself for longer and longer stretches these days.
We have started to give her solid foods as well. She has tried rice cereal and summer squash. While her face and bib are a mess at the end, much of the food does actually make it down the hatch. She still is quite perplexed when it comes to the sippy cup, though. She is also getting very good at alerting me when she thinks that she needs to nurse. She will be sitting on my lap and start dive bombing my chest. She knows where her food is and would help her self if she were able.
M and I are truly blessed through having her in our lives. It is amazing to see how far she has come in these last five months. I love to see her little personality as it emerges more and more each day. She absolutely loves people and will look at someone until she catches their eye and reward them with a big smile. I can't wait to see the person she becomes.
