Thinking about Christmas already

Thanks to lovely Michellene over at Princess Couture Designs (go check out her stuff, she's super talented!), I've signed up for a blogger secret Santa gift exchange. I think this is a great way to participate in something where you can meet new people, put a smile on someone's face, and of course it's fun. If you think this might be something you are interested in, visit Survey Junkie and sign up!

"Surprise Me! Secret Santa Gift Exchange is a gift exchange/swap for bloggers.
Each participating blog will be a Secret Santa & also receive a gift from a Secret Santa.
There are No Sponsors for this event, it's just like one big office party.
After you receive your gift you can tell everyone all about it on your blog
$15 gift(s) + shipping = $20.00
Each Secret Santa will spend $15 on their gift. This can be one item or multiple items that total $15. We want everyone to enjoy the swap and their gift so we have added category choices for you to choose from on the sign up. This way it helps the Secret Santa have an idea of what you like and so that everyone enjoys their gifts.
Sign up will be open for 2 weeks {so hurry and sign-up} and will end on Wednesday October 6th....
If you are interested in participating in the Secret Santa Gift Exchange simply
Fill out the form and we will add you to the list.
After you sign up snag the button and let your readers know that you are participating & that they can too..
After sign up closes we will notify everyone by email to let you know :

We will email you updates, shipping deadlines and all other information needed after the list is closed.
No one will know who is who's Secret Santa is so shh.. it's top secret :)"

5 Months...

So this post is a couple weeks later, but at least I am writing it ;)

As of 5 months:
  • you are able to sit unassisted. She never really did the whole tripod thing
  • making some super strange noises, one of them being a sort of worried squeal, more like a real whine. It's pretty pathetic, but still cute
  • know how to put her soother properly in her mouth all on her own
  • have learned how to undo the velcro on her diapers... must have bottoms on at all times because of this new found talent
  • you are strictly a breastmilk baby, still no solids
  • still not sleeping through the night! your sleep schedule is pretty much 10pm - 9am with one wake up in the middle of the night around 3am to snack
  • your naps during the day are practically non-existent! If you do choose to give me a break, it is only for about 30 minutes at most, maybe twice a day (With the exception of when we are in the car)
  • you are a true water baby! you light up whenever you are put in the pool. I cannot wait to start swimming lessons with you next month!
  • you are completely obsessed with your Sophie to the point where you cry when I take her away to put you down for a nap
  • and finally, you battled your very first cold this month, lasting 10 long days. My poor little congested baby :(
