Layla is 5 Months!!

Layla Lou, or as Ella calls you Layla Boo Boo, I can't believe you are already 5 months old!! I weighed you this morning and you are up to almost 24 pounds! You had to switch you to size 4 diapers earlier this month and they fit so much better! You have such big thighs and tummy. Well, honestly, everything is pretty big, but those stand out! I love how chunky you are and I wouldn't trade it for anything. You can still wear size 12 month onesies, but 18 month pants fit better now I  just have to roll them up because they are a little long. Everywhere we go everyone asks if you are 7 or 8 months and they are shocked when i saw that you just turned 5 months.

You got your first tooth on September 30th. We were at your Daddy's reunion in Holliday watching a football game when it finally broke through. Your second one is almost through, but not quite.

You are almost sitting up on your own. Well, you can sit up by yourself for a while, but then you start slumping over, so you are 90% there!!! You can roll from your tummy to your back and your back to your tummy. You are a rolling machine!!

You blow spit bubbles all the time! Your clothes are constantly drenched with spit. You love to talk and laugh. You grab for everything and love to pull Mommy and Ella's hair. I remember I wasn't able to wear a necklace for a long time with your big sister and you are going to be the same.

You LOVE your big sister! When you are fussy Ella always sings to you and you instantly start smiling. You light up when you see her and you love it when she plays with you. I LOVE watching you two together and seeing how much you love each other, there is nothing more sweet!

On the down side, you still won't take a bottle. You won't take a pacifier either, but that doesn't bother me. You also have some serious Mommy attachment. You won't let too many people hold you, I think you just have stranger anxiety, well and I am just such a fabulous Mom, who wouldn't be attached to me! HAHAHA!!!

We love you, love you, love you and I don't care that I am the only one who ever gets to hold you because you are my baby! It's not such a bad thing!
