Golden is five months!
... rolling. And rolling. And rolling. She has figure out that she can eventually get where she wants to go by rolling over, pivoting, then rolling another way. Over and over again. Sometimes, she does this funny inch-worm like move, and lifts her litte bottom in the air, then slides down to move forward. She's pretty smart. And we are definitely not ready for a mobile baby. Let the baby-proofing begin--again!
... loving her own voice, and likes to chatter and sing all the time. And its my favorite sound! Sometimes, she'll compete with Afton and its pretty comical to hear them both try to mimic each other. I love it.
... fascinated with food. She's only had a few tastes here and there of real food (bananas, mashed potatoes and squash--yum!) but she watches anyone around her eating real food like a hawk. She's started swatting and trying to grab whatever food or drink is in my hand. Not quite eating, but she also loves to gnaw on carrot and celery sticks.
... a book worm. She loves to look at books, and has started to hold them on her own. She will lie on the ground and hold a little book above her head and just stare at it for a while... until it eventually ends up in her mouth. I am happy to see a love of books instilled in her so young!
... enamored with her big sister. Goldie consistently lights up when Afton is around, and so far, no one has made her laugh or smile more than her big sister. Afton likes to sing her songs and tell her stories, and Goldie just eats it up. Afton is her favorite. And Afton tells me frequently that they are best friends. And my heart melts.
We truly are a happy family,
and constantly count our blessings
for how good God is and has been to us.
