When our baby girl was born, our world was flipped completely. I thought I would never get the hang of life again. Yet, here we are, exactly five months later, and I want time to slow down. I might even wish time could reverse so I could do it all again - okay maybe not all, but a lot.
Then again, I wouldn't trade where we are now for anything! Now we are enjoying life with this lovely little lady who brightens every day. She is the happiest little one, who constantly tries to outdo herself in how loudly she can squeal. She may be fussy at times lately because of teething, but sing her the Royal Navy song and she instantly smiles and is her squealing self again. Or, ask daddy to come in the room and simply say her name, and she'll grin ear to ear and then blush, just like her mother. Then again, if daddy leaves, you are in for a grumpy baby moment. Read her a horrible book and she will give you a look that says, "What are you reading? Why are you corrupting my mind with this?" Take her into the kitchen and she'll babble at the coffee pot. Get yourself a cup of coffee, and she'll eye it the whole time you are drinking...she may even lean forward with her mouth open, like she expects you to let her have some, too. Talk to her and she'll make eye contact, listen intently, and even do some chatting with you. She's our little social butterfly, but she still has her moments when she doesn't recognize someone and lets her discomfort show. Oh, and did I mention she's the cutest baby in the world? I know all parents say that, but I just happen to be right.
So, anyway, here's to celebrating five months of being a blessed mother of such a precious little one! And here's to the coming month, which is bound to be even more wonderful!
