Dear Kate, Katorde, little chicka, & Chub Chubs,
You are five months old. A whole hand! I can't believe it. I simply can't get over you and how much joy and happiness you bring into our home. Everyone loves you and your contagious smile. You literally are happy all the time. Random people come up to me all the time and tell me what a happy baby you and they always ask if you are happy like this all the time... YES! You are the most easiest baby! Thanks lady, I simply just love you.
At five months old you are wearing size six month clothes and you are wearing size three diapers, though you tend to blow out every once in a while so it might be time to go up a diaper size. You are a little chunk all full of lovable and kissable rolls. I always joke I'm going to eat you up, the kids always freak out about it.
You my darling little baby are in love with your blankets and your fingers. I am trying so hard to have you suck on a pacifier and not your fingers, but no matter how many times I try, you pull that pacifier out and in go your fingers. It's just something I can't break. You still love your blankets shoved in your face. Yes, suffocation is always on my mind with you and I am constantly checking to making sure you are breathing. You are on a pretty good little schedule. Going to bed at 7pm and waking up around 11pm to eat then back to sleep. You then wake up around 4am to eat again and then back to bed until around 8 or 9am. Then you take a morning nap around 10am and then a late afternoon nap around 2pm. It's a schedule and I'll take it. You are still sleeping in our room. I really really need to get you into your room but I simply just can't let you go, plus with our sleeping arrangement it's just easier to have you next to me. I really don't mind and I sleep through your little grunts. It works for us.
You love attention and being surrounded by people. Owen can't leave your side and most of the time you actually laugh at all of the things he does to you, but he sometimes can get a little rough and that you do not enjoy! obviously!
Kate, there really is actually very little things that you don't like. As long as you are fed you are most likely happy. It doesn't take much!
I can't believe how fast you are growing. It hurts my heart and I love it all at the same time. I am so thankful for you and your cheerful disposition that you bring into our home. We just can't get enough of you Kateorade. Thanks for being so incredibly awesome at being a baby.
Love you chickita!
