Luke 10:41-42

"But the Lord answered her, 'Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; there is need of only one thing.'"

5 months

The munchkin is so much fun right now.  It's exciting to see how she's growing and changing these last few weeks.  She loves to roll, usually in the same direction, so our living room is being taken over by quilts to make it a little more comfortable.  She prefers to be on her tummy now and will grab toys and pull them to her mouth.  We still lay her on her back on the playmat but she grabs the dangling toys now.  Little L is getting better at sitting up but still needs a little help.  We started putting her in the crib at night and she's doing really well. She calms herself down by sucking her thumb and most of the time puts herself to sleep. She typically goes to bed between 10-11 and gets up around 3 and 7 to eat.  She naps once in the morning and afternoon and typically a catnap in the evening.  Our routine is eat, play, then sleep every 2-3 hours during the day.  In the last month she went in the pool for the first time and liked it.  She went on her first plane ride and was restless after about 45 minutes, I think because she couldn't get up and move like we can at home.

Other things she likes-
Her Sophie teething toys
Ceiling fans
Bouncing on Daddy's knee
Being read to
Having her feet tickled
Blowing raspberries

I was putting away her newborn and 0-3 clothes last week and can't believe how much she's grown!  We are so grateful for the joy she brings to our lives.
