This was by far your biggest month in terms of growth and discovery. You can lift your head up with ease, even though you still despise tummy time. But you make do because you know the pay off means FOOD! Glorious baby food. We started you on veggies and cereal first because we want you to be a good eater one day. I only hope that your love of carrots and peas sticks around for years to come. You’re a messy eater. Messy doesn’t even begin to describe and I’m just being nice. Somehow you end up with food up your nose, in your hair, and once in your ears. Girl, not sure how it happens but it sure makes for some good laughs.
Also in this month you finally discovered the cat. He’s beginning to warm up to you and during meal time he’s right near your high chair to watch. I think it’s mainly because he’s interested in what you’re eating because he would like some too. You’ve locked eyes a few times and when you’re with your daddy he tends to be near to snuggle up too. I think he is slowly starting to like you and over time you two will be great friends. Or enemies.
October brought your first Halloween. You weren’t exactly thrilled, you kind of wanted nothing to do with it and it was pretty cold and rainy out that day. But for a few short moments you were the cutest damn mouse ever!
Finally, saving the best for last, you finallu rolled over! It’s still a work in progress but it finally happened. Your daddy saw it first but kept it a secret so that I could see it for myself. He’s a pretty great guy. You still struggle because your big head holds everything back.
You’re almost a half year old which makes me feel insanely crazy. Before we know it you’ll be trying to crawl and oh goodness the cat is in for it then!
Love you always,
Momma and Daddy
