Anna Is 5 Months Old!

I think I say it every month.. but good grief, how time flies! Yesterday was sweet Anna's 5 month "birthday".. so it was time to strip her down and grab a few shots :) Here you can see how she's grown! These were taken at one week old, and then every month on the 15th.

And just some cute faces :)

Notable milestones:
* I started her on cereal. I was going to wait until she was 6 months old, but with her refusing to take a bottle I had to have something for her when I am gone 8+ hours at a wedding. So far she seems to love the cereal! Mark has already said it makes it easier.
*I was having problems getting her to sleep at night - she was getting up at least 2-3 times and not wanting to go back down. But, I figured out the problem: apparently she can smell me?! Who knew?! So since she knows I am close, she won't sleep as well. So, the solution would be to move her out of our room. Only there is a problem with that - in our tiny little house, there was no where else to put her! Except for... our closet. So, my daughter is now sleeping in our closet. Her pack n' play just barely fits... but since we put her in there, she's been sleeping fine, and only getting up once. Please, don't call child services on me! There is an air vent in there, and I leave the door cracked ;)
*She can roll over from her tummy to her back - sometimes. Mostly it happens when she is sleeping, for some reason.

All in all, she is such a precious baby and we are so blessed!
