Dear Elliott, You are 5 months old today.
Ellie, you can roll over front to back and back to front and have for a few weeks now.
You weigh 18.8 lbs (based on Lyell weighing himself and then adding you).
Everything still goes straight for the mouth. Freud would love you as a patient. Then two weeks ago, we realized it was about that time. TEETHING!
You have randomly started saying "mama" in your ramblings. I know you have not made the connection, but MELT. MY. HEART.
You can hold your own bottle. Mostly for the first half and you get either too sleepy or too board and then you let mommy hold it for the latter half.
I miss you in our room though, sometimes if you wake up for a night nursing close to the time I wake up for work...I will just bring you in our bed for a little snuggle time.
You have a few new toys taking up more room in the house.
You are now getting frustrated with certain things.You will get so angry if one of your toys falls out of your reach. One of my favorite things (which I should not laugh at) is: You have toys at grandma house too and the bouncer there is different from your bouncer at home. You get so angry at something that is not bendable on ours that is super bendable and you can put in your mouth at grandmas (it looks similar) . You try with all your might to bend it and put it in your mouth, then you get angry, hit it and puff out that bottom lip. Again, I can not help but laugh...but you are just so darn cute.
You love getting out of the house and being on adventures. Even if the adventures are a walk around the block, the mall or grocery shopping. You are such a delight and you smile at everyone. You light up my world and the world around you, Ellie. I hope you never loose that shine. Love you to the moon and back.
