5 Months Old

Dear Autumn,

At five months old, you are honestly the sweetest kid I've ever met. You rarely cry. You smile constantly. You wake up happy. If you wake up in the middle of the night, you'll flash me a sleepy grin. You are happy and delightful. Sometimes your dad and I discuss whether it's normal for a kid to smile so much. You are also super cuddly. You are always nuzzling into my neck or holding onto some part part of my hand or arm, just to be constantly touching (honestly, it drives me crazy at night. I can't wait until you're in your own bed. I don't like people touching me when I'm trying to sleep. No offense.)

Some things of note: your hair seems to be turning into a reddish blond color. It's an adorable ball of fuzz that sticks out all over the place. We're pretty sure that if you're a redhead that you'll be a cute one - they can go either way.

You laugh mostly for Calvin and your dad. They have the ability to act goofy and hit your funny bone like nobody else.

You like to see everything that's going on around you, but rather than turning around, you prop your weight on to the top of your head, arch your back, and watch what's going on behind you upside down.

You have become very mobile. You roll around the floor, scooting across the room and all over the place. Your favorite place is the playroom since it's soft carpet and has bright toys all over the floor for you to pick up. Calvin doesn't appreciate that you've invaded his territory.

The last five months have been so much fun. We adore you 100% and can't wait to see what the next weeks bring in your quickly developing little body and mind.

Love, Mama
