Katelynn, my baby girl, born on March 27, 2010 is one day away from being 5 months old! The time has went by fast. In that time she has learned to smile, laugh, giggle, grab on to things, the occasional roll-over, and now enjoys playing with a few toys. She has grown nearly three times the size she was from that first day (weight) and gotten pretty tall, too. She now eats baby cereal, applesauce, a little babyfood, but still must have mommy for most of her nutrition. To this date, Katelynn has not been sick once, which has been a true blessing. She stays awake most of the day, with an occasional 15 minute nap. She also sleeps most of the night.
Cassie and I were talking the other night about why it seems like kids don’t stay babies for very long. I think it seems that way because they are only a baby for about a year. That makes that time precious and one that should be spent observing, playing, taking pictures, and enjoying these teeny, tiny moments that will never come back. Each moment is a blessing. Each day a joy.
