You are already 5 months old sweet girl! While I'm late getting this recap posted, I did actually take the pictures a couple of weeks ago...so that's progress, right?
You are a giggling fool! Mostly at your daddy, but Manny has figured out how to make you giggle now too. He makes monkey noises or tickles your belly and you just love it.
In fact, the day I was taking your pictures your brother caught us in the act and decided to join us for the photo shoot. I love this picture of him tickling you...you really just adore him. Most of the time, anyway. This picture makes it look like you have teeth, but you don't have any yet. You do seem to be showing some pretty serious signs of teething, so maybe soon?
You have really started interacting and playing this month. You grab everything you can get your hands on and we've officially entered the stage where it's challenging to eat or do anything with you on my lap. Sometimes when your brother is smothering you as usual, you like to pull his hair or grab his cheeks. He gets so mad but I can't help but laugh. I predict quite a few scrap sessions in the future.
He does love you so very much though. He talks about you all.of.the.time. He is a bit extreme in the "ways" he shows you he loves you, but for the most part he's pretty nice...I think he just doesn't know how to control his excitement sometimes. You are such a good sport. And you are most DEFINITELY always Bebe Sawyer. I'm sorry sister, but even your daddy and I have picked up on that nickname from your brother. He actually likes to say it in a sing-song voice, and well...it's just catchy. Your cousin Livvy likes to call you Mavie-girl, so I've taken to calling you that some as well.
Here is the monthly comparison. I've said it before and it still holds true this month...you look more like Manny does right now than when he was the same age as you. You guys are definitely looking more and more alike each day.
We sure do love you baby girl! I can't believe 6 months is just around the corner...I hear that's when things with 2 kiddos will really start to get interesting. Take it easy on me, okay? :)
I love you baby girl!
