Today Abigail is 5 months old.
I can't believe how quickly it's gone by and how much she's changed. She seems to do something new everyday. Today she saw me with her bottle, her eyes tracked it, then when I got close enough, she reached out to grab it and screeched.
At her 4 month checkup she was 24in long and weighed 14lbs 12oz. I'm sure both of those numbers have gone up since then. She goes back to the doctor for her 6 month check up. I'll let you know just how much bigger she's gotten.
Abigail is so cute. She knows I'm her dad. I get a special smile and screech when she sees me. She can roll from her back to her belly and her belly to her back. (Is anyone else singing Snoop Dogg - Gin and Juice?)
We recently started feeding her rice cereal mixed with formula. It's so funny watching her learn how to eat. She spits most of the spoon full out. And when I say spoon full, I'm using that term lightly. I use the smallest spoon ever made and it's usually only 1/4 full.
We get stopped everywhere we go. People tell us how beautiful she is. I say "thank you" out loud, but think "I know" on the inside. ;) We get asked a lot of silly questions too. Here are a few that spring to mind:
- Is that a real baby?
- Is that her real hair or is that a wig?
- Is that a doll?
