5 months old

First off, thank you for the comments on my previous post. While I hate that there are others thinking/fretting over this it is comforting to know that I'm not alone.

Onto more pleasant things! Like my kid! She's five months today!

And fantastic. So mindblowingly fantastic. I wish you could see the smile on my face when I think of her, I'm practically swooning. I don't recall a time in my life when I've felt as satisfied, content, proud, confident, settled - I could go on. Todd and I could definitely stand to work on our relationship more but all in all, things are pretty good right now.

The kid is healthy, happy and so very funny. She has such a big personality and is simply DELIGHTED by everything. The way she looks around and takes in her surroundings kills me. She's sitting up by herself now so we've put her in a high chair when we've gone out to eat and it's HILARIOUS watching her watching everything.

When she's tired she either morphs into a crankpants or she gets slap happy. She'll laugh at anything. Touch her nose: giggles. Blow raspberries on her feet: giggles. Sneeze: giggles. It's almost worth keeping her up a few minutes too late to goof around a bit.

My favorite time of the day is when her eyes pop open for the first time of the day. She looks over at me with an incredulous expression on her face as if she's overwhelmed with joy that I'm RIGHT. THERE! I have been known to shed a tear or two at the giant smile.

We're thinking about some solid foods within the next 3 - 4 weeks. I don't want to rush it, especially since we have a lot of traveling coming up. I've been reading a lot on - interesting stuff!
