5 months!

My little boo is 5 months old! We are almost half way there to one year! Not a lot has changed really since my last post. But lets see..

She got baptized! She got baptized in the same Catholic church Andrew and I got married in. Andrew's sister Aimee and her husband Mike are the God Parents. Ill post more on this later

She's still just as happy and giggly as always.

She's droolfest 2013 at all times. We gotta keep a bib on as to not ruin every outfit immediately.

She's growing our of all her clothes.. We are moving into the 3-6 month and 6 month range

We are going to Dallas! Just Layne and I are going in April. So I had to go out and get her some short sleeve onsies. Layne is gonna feel warmth for the first time in her sweet little life. Yay Texas!

She's been sleeping pretty good. Momma has even had a couple nights out on the town after putting her to sleep and daddy stayed home with her. (High five!)

I've been going to a bunch of momma meet ups so she's been meeting lots of babies her age. This is good for momma.

She got her first rash. :/ not good. Not sure what it was but it scared me! It went away after a couple of days. Don't come back!

She's a babble machine.
And a cute one at that.

Weight (measured by me carrying her on the scale.)  16 pounds

Looking forward to:
Her first Easter!
Back to Dallas!
Momma and daddy date night: The Book of Morman... Woot! (Be good Layner bird)
Warm weather!
Sitting up by herself (When does this happen?)
First foods! (I'm waiting till 6 months I think we are starting with avocado)

teeny tiny Toms a gift from Auntie Aimee

Just a little tummy time

Busted out this jumpy thingy-  not sure if our base boards in this old chicago apartment can handle it. This might get returned



Here's a pic of the rash.  It CLEARLY didn't bother her.  ;)

Here are some more first that occurred between 4- 5 months. We have had some real good ones this time with videos to boot.

I am finally blogging from my computer so these pictures are actually a normal size.

Here we go:

First: time facing OUT in the baby carrier

We weren't ready for this shot- this is with out the awesome hoodie for the carrier.
Sushi date!  Andrew, Layne and I went for sushi.  Layne slept the majority of the dinner....

Then she woke up- and just hung out! 
First: Layne and Wally McDonald meet at last... they fell in love.  

Our sweet friend Adair was on her way to Florida (From LA) with a lay over in Chicago on the day of a major  snow storm. So she got stuck here!  (in the burbs) And we had an impromptu get together to see her and meet WALLY! (who is one month younger than Layne)

First: family reading night (in my 10 dollar pink craigslist rocking chair)
First: Oscar Party! Alison and Layne at our 3rd annual Oscar Party. Layne was a trooper!
First: sitting up so good on this chair (last: time for this outfit)...

Here's a good little giggle fest:

Please click on this video.. I am pretty sure we have Layne's official first word.!  If you don't want to click it's, "MA MA!"  - Although I know it's not intentional, it's going down in the books!

These firsts are real fun!
