Kyleigh is officially 5 months old. 5 months and 2 1/2 days to be exact. Here's some things that she does that astound her parents and just about the most adorable things we've ever seen:
She sticks her tongue out as far as possible and goes "aaahhhhh" like she's at the doctor. (This feat is most amusing when she has a spoonful of peas in her mouth.)
When she gets happy or excited about something and she's laying on her back, she furiously kicks her left foot. (Just the left one.)
She eats virtually everything she can get her hands around. One of her favorite things to eat is her mommy's glasses, but a close second is her daddy's fingers.
Sometimes she'll get bored of laying down and will fuss and cry until you come over and help her stand up. (She'll continue to cry if you pick her up because she wants to stand up.) It's her favorite new trick.
We already gave her a slice of lemon once while we were out to eat one Sunday after church. She had an immediate love/hate relationship with that thing. She couldn't wait to get it into her mouth, but once she did, she'd shudder and made a face. She would stick her tongue out while making a "sour" face and say "uuuuuhh". It was hilarious. The table next to us had two senior couples who thoroughly enjoyed her lemon experience also. :)
Kyleigh is bald. And not just a little bald, but pretty much completely bald. There's a few hairs here and there, but they're very small and light colored. She's adorable, but her big ol' head is just so BALD! I have to make sure she's dressed in lots of pink and flowers when we go out, or else people always think she's a boy.
Her first word is "boo" and she says it a lot. We always say to her "I love you" and "ahhh-booo" when we're playing with her, and she seems to mimic the intonation we use on those when she says "boo". It's so cute!
She seems to be a night owl. She fights sleep at night (Wow she's stubborn - I have NO idea where she gets that from. Must be her father's side of the family!) Her silliest time of the day where talks and laughs the most is at night.
She can almost sit unsupported. She only needs a tiny bit of support. She can't pull herself into that position yet, but if we sit her up, she can stay that way for quite some time.
Matt and I always remark on how sweet of a kid she is and how blessed we are by such a wonderful child.
My continuing prayer for her life is that she is a blessing to everyone she meets, mirroring God's love and grace in all her actions towards others, so that they may see and have no question as to Whom she belongs.
I love being a Mommy. Thank you, God, for this opportunity.
