Month 5 with Baby #2

Another moth has come and gone. Why does it always go by so quickly!?!?!

The big new skill this month is that you can now roll over from your back to your stomach. Although you don't seem to really like this new trick that you can do. It has caused a little bit of disruptions of your naps as sometimes you roll over in your sleep, which is not fun for anyone. Hopefully you will soon learn how to roll both ways soon.

This past month you went on your first big trip, just us girls. We went to your Grandpa Werner's family reunion. And you were so good in the car. I couldn't believe it. You didn't nap as long as I was hoping for but that didn't seem to bother you as you played happy with a top for hours. It was only about 30 minutes to we arrived when you started to get fussy. I need to stop being so surprised when you are so good as I feel you have your Father's easy going attitude.

Although the reunion was fun, not having regular naps did seem to affect you as you were a little more fussy than usual. But you took it in your stride and as long as you were held you seem to be okay and lucky there were a lot of willing hands to hold you.

Sleep has seem to take a little bit of a setback as you are waking more often and are struggling to go back to sleep between feeds. I really have no idea what is going on but I'm hoping that it is just a phase and will quickly pass.

You and you sister have started to have conversations with each other. You will start talking and she loves to come over and talk back to you. It makes you so happy and excited. And you will talk even more and give her lots of sweet smiles. I'm so glad that you two have each. I can see the love growing between you tow already, and I hope you will always be there for each other.

Your big sister has also made up a new game to play with you. She loves to bring you toys and sometimes she lets you keep them and sometimes she doesn't. Luckily you aren't too bothered at this point you just get so excited when she comes right and smiles at you.

Your sweet smile as so infectious it brings so much joy to our home.

I'm so glad you are here with us.

9 Months with Baby #2

Once again another wonderful month with you has past. Although to be 100% honest this past month has been a little harder than the rest. You had quite a few hard nights this month. You had two more teeth come in, your lateral incisors and I wonder if that was the cause of all those bad nights. Thankfully by the end of the month you seem to find your way out of it.

You have started waving this month. Mostly you wave are Daddy but you have waved at Rose and I a few times.

The other thing that you have started standing up! Holy cow that happened fast I swear it was just yesterday that you started crawl! And now you are standing, it is all happening a little too fast for me. For when I look at you I still see a very little baby, and yet you are standing.

You and Rose are growing such a strong relationship. For the most part you two get a long great. Rose loves to bring you toys to play with. And when you get upset she will come to you, pat your back and say "shhh" trying to help you feel better. She loves to give you a hug and a kiss when you go to bed. It is really sweet to see. The area where there is still some work to be done is sharing. And truth be told at this point and time your sister need to work on it more than you. If you are on the floor and start to crawl towards a toy she is playing with she will freak out and cry "share" "share" as she tries to put the toy (no matter what it's size) somewhere you can't touch it. I know I shouldn't laugh but it really is funny to watch.

It is so amazing to see you see you learn and grow. You are really are such a sweetheart, always smiling and laughing. You are such a joy to be around. We are so so lucky to have you be a part of our family.

We love you so much.
