You were 5 months old in April and I can see signs of you growing up this month.
We gave you some cereal for a few days. You sure did like eating out of a spoon like a big girl. We soon figured out that your little tummy wasn't quite ready for food though, so we went back to just milk for a couple more weeks. The next food we tried was avocado. You thought that was pretty yummy. We also tried green beans and you enjoyed those, although they seemed to give you a little bit of a tummy ache.
We kept taking you on walks so you could explore the big outdoors. You fell even more in love with your daddy. I think you are going to be a big daddy's girl! There were a couple of times when daddy's work schedule made it so you didn't get to see him very much for a few days and you would get so fussy! You started recognizing daddy when he comes home from work and would welcome him with a big smile and outstretched arms. It is the cutest thing.
After a couple weeks of sleeping very well at night, you suddenly started waking up at lease 4 times a night. You were so sleepy and cranky. Mama was sleepy and cranky. I had no idea why you were waking up so often. I finally realized that you started not sleeping well about the time we started giving you food, so after about a week, we switched your food meal to the morning and you went back to sleeping better. Yay!!
You started getting stronger and able to wiggle yourself around a little more. You also had your first Easter. You had such a pretty dress and we went to church with Grandma, Poppa and Mawmaw, then out to lunch afterwards.
Mimi and Pawpaw came to visit you, but it was a very short visit because Pawpaw had to go back to work so we don't have any pictures.
