5 months old!

This little darling hit the 5 month mark today and I don't really feel like much has changed since month 4 except that she's sleeping through the night much better now and has probably packed on a little more chub. Actually I take that back. She's finally grabbing at toys and trying to eat them and sucks on her fingers every chance she gets. It's nice because sometimes she can even put her pacifier back in her mouth. I guess where I feel she hasn't really changed much is in the physical development, as in no rolling over, no straightening her legs and trying to stand. Just still kinda being a big baby blob. But a cute one at least.

She does drool much more now so that's fun! Luckily it's not so bad that she needs a bib or anything. We've been going to the pool a lot lately and when I hold her up against me she always has to suck on my shoulder. I think it's so cute.
These are her two favorite fingers. Usually it's just the pointer, but every now and again the middle finger gets lucky enough to be in there too. Definitely not a thumb sucker.
Indie used to be super squealy, but in the last few weeks she has toned it way down. Now, it's almost as if she's taking everything in and just more content. At the pool, she doesn't get super excited, she just chills. And when we walk around the complex in the Bjorn, I wouldn't even know she was there if the extra weight wasn't digging into my shoulders. It's really bizarre to me how quiet she can be! That's all for now, I guess. Just a little Indie update for those who care, which you all should.

It feels good to give!

In the last week, we have found out that Clara will have to undergo at least 6-8 months of treatment. As if that's not awful enough, the hospital is two hours from her home, which doesn't make it any easier on my brother and his family. Cameron, my brother in law, called me last week to see what I thought about getting some wristbands together to support Clara and keep the fundraisers going. Well guess what?? They are here and ready to be sold!! Click on the link below to go get yourself one!
