Kate {5 Months}

Kate turned {5 months old} last week!

Here are some new things she's doing:

Eating solid foods.  I gave her rice cereal for the first time last week (see pics below!).  I knew she was ready to start eating solids because every time I ate something while I was holding her, she would lean forward with her mouth wide open.  I can tell she wants to get it right into her mouth.  It is so hilarious when she does it!  I was trying to hold off as long as I could because of Emmy's allergies (I don't want Kate to have food allergies, too, if I can help it).  But I decided it was time.  And she loved it!  She started smiling when I gave her her first bite. 

-  She is loving her hands.  She loves mashing them together, shoving them in her mouth, grabbing anything and everything she can reach.

-  She loves to stick out her tongue.  It is so funny!  She mostly does it when she's happy and smiling.  It's really cute.  I need to get a pic of it.

-  She still loves to be held all the time.  Like I've said before, it's hard getting anything done, but I can't complain too much.  She's so soft and squishy, it's nice to squeeze and love her!

-  She's starting to babble a lot.  She's been saying "Maaaa" and "Baaaa," things like that.  It's fun to hear her make all of her noises.

-  She's also started screaming.  She just does it when she's talking and babbling but it's really random and funny.

She isn't rolling over yet (maybe she would be if she'd let me put her down more often (: ) or sitting up yet, but she's getting close to both! 

And I'm pretty sure her first tooth is just about to come in.  She's been waking up a lot the past couple of nights and her gums feel a little swollen.  No fevers or runny noses, though.  I won't be surprised if a little tooth peeks out sometime in the next week or so.

Here are the first solid foods pics:


Kate has her Deer in the Headlights look and Emmy looks a little mischievous . . .
