5 Months - April 12, 2002

Today is Dylan's five month birthday. I can't believe it. I look at her sweet smiling face and while it all has gone so quickly, I just can't imagine what life was like without her.

At five months, these are the moments I cherish:
  • When she sees me looking at her and breaks out in a huge smile.
  • Being able to make her laugh hysterically just by kissing her little belly.
  • When she moves both arms up and down because she is just SO excited.
  • Her fake shyness - she has figured out that people laugh and think it's cute when she smiles and then quickly buries her head in my chest.
  • The way she always reaches out to Friday.
  • Seeing her eat actual food and watching it go all over the place.
  • Her funny sounds.
  • Watching her try to sit up.
  • The way she will NOT stay on her back, but always gets stuck on her tummy (even though she knows how to roll that way too!).
  • Her raspberries.
  • Her sweet close-mouthed smile that looks just like her Daddy.
  • Waking up next to her and seeing that sweet face.
  • Realizing that she is about to experience her first-ever spring.
