Playing catch up

Wow.  I'm so behind!  But, I finally got around to putting Lucy's monthly update posts together with pictures and put on here.  Hopefully a real update on what we've been up to the past 5 months will be coming soon.  I'm sure it'll have way too many pictures since I have probably taken approximately  7,539 pictures (give or take a few :)) since Lucy came into our lives.  But for now enjoy Lucy's 1 month, 2 month, 3 month, 4 month and 5 month updates.  And this adorable picture because, well....she's adorable :)

5 months old

This adorable little baby girl is already 5 months old!  
She loves to roll over and has started going back and forth from tummy to back more often, instead of just rolling to her tummy and hanging out there.  She working on getting teeth thru which means she still drools all. the. time and has to constantly wear a bib so I'm not always changing her clothes.  Has started this new thing where she wraps her legs around your arm when changing her diaper, her clothes, bathing her, tickling her or anytime she has the chance.  She's our little monkey :)
Ate cereal from a spoon and some baby food for the first time this month.  She was horrible at it!  She would not sit still long enough to get anything in her mouth and when she did, she'd spit it back out.  But, she has gotten MUCH better and will now gobble it up as long as dad is holding her so she can't move around too much.   She really likes cereal mixed with applesauce, pears and apples, has mixed feelings about carrots and does NOT like squash.  Not a veggie girl, just like mom, but we're working on it :)
She did catch her first cold which has made for some rough days and nights.  She is sleeping all the way thru the night more and more and has even slept until 8:30 or 9am a time or two.  But, again, doesn't let me get too used to a full nights sleep and will still get up around 5:30 or 6am a few days here and there. Still loves to watch football with dad.  Still NOT a cuddler, although it is quite hilarious to try to get her to cuddle in just for one little squeeze :)  Still has a smile that lights up the room. 
Her clogged duct  has been clear for almost a month now...YAY!  Finally!
She is apparently just like her daddy was and has to be held out so she can see what is going on around her.  She is always moving and wiggling and grabbing for things.  Still loves to jump and LOVES her Christmas present from Gma Merrill (a jumper) and so does mom :)  Still attempting to army crawl but has yet to make much of any progress. Most mornings after she wakes up she will just hang out in her crib for quite a while before making enough noise for me to realize she's awake.  Sometimes even after I know she is awake I just let her hang out anyways because it is adorable to spy on her and watch and listen to her.  

Even on the rough days I still can't believe I have been lucky enough to have had this sweet baby girl in my life for the past 5 months! 
Love you Lucy Goosey!
