5 months

Wow, Miss Molly this month really flew by! Maybe it is because you are so stinkin cute!!! You were eating and sleeping really well until we hit a little road bump. I think you might be allergic to oatmeal, it makes your tummy get really big and keeps you up at night with gas. So we are taking a break from the oatmeal and that has really seemed to help. I think we'll try rice cereal again next week and see how that goes. You were loving sitting in your high chair and eating like a big girl, I hated to stop.
You are a good sleeper most of the time, but this did not come without some tears. Both you and mommy had to cry a little to get you to learn to go to sleep on your own. It was really hard but I am so glad we did it. On a good night you are sleeping from 8 to 5 or so. It isn't all night but I will take it! Here are 5 things I love about you at 5 months:

1. You love Jack. You watch him all day and try and reach for him when he stands near you. You get upset when he isn't close enough to touch or when he walks away!
2. When you lay on my chest, you look up at me with those big blue eyes and my heart just melts.
3. You are grabbing everything!! My hair, my face, my sleeve when I change you and every toy put in front of you. Evidence by the next two couldn't wait to get that bear and pull it towards you!

4. I love it when you softly place your hand on my cheek and look into my eyes!
5. Everything you can get your hands on goes into your mouth. I like to watch you reaching for something with your hands and your mouth is open and your tongue is out in anticipation. When you finally get it, you squeal with delight. You are so proud of yourself!
I love you so much!

Dylan's 1st Birthday

My beautiful niece and Molly's cousin, Dylan, turned one this month! Molly was super excited to celebrate. I was so surprised that this hat didn't bother her at all, she wore it for over an hour! Too bad the birthday girl would have no part of the hats! Dylan loves monkeys so it was so appropriate for her to have a monkey party! My sister found this precious cake for her to use as her smash cake!
Dylan was not having any part of the monkey cake, she screamed and wouldn't even touch it! I have to admit, we all got a kick out of her reaction! She is so cute when she is mad! Fiery red head!

When all else fails, try a cupcake! She went after it...and had orange icing all over everything!!

Birthday girl and her mommy!!

Silly one year old trying on her papa's glasses!

Happy 1st Birthday Dylan! We love you!
