5 Month Photos

Yep, you read that right: FIVE MONTHS.  Caroline was five months old on Wednesday!  Can you believe it?  Time flies when you’re having fun!  To mark the occasion, we did a little photo shoot in the rocking chair yesterday.  Here are my favorites:

Man, she’s cute.  Once I start snapping the photos, I can hardly stop!  She just smiles and smiles at the camera – we are so blessed to have such a happy girl!

We also continue to be thankful for our childcare situation.  Nanny Stephanie is awesome!  And we absolutely love the family we’re sharing with.  Stephanie sometimes takes photos of the kids and sends them during the day when they’re being especially cute, too.  Here are a couple from this past week:

Isabelle is a go-getter.  At 6.5 months, she’s crawling with great speed, pulling up on anything and everything, and not letting ANYTHING get in her way.  They are so fun to watch!

And here’s how Caroline sleeps these days: arms underneath, butt in the air:

We are trying not to take her sleep patterns for granted: she is SUCH a good sleeper.  She takes either 3 or 4 naps each day, anywhere from 30 minutes to 2.5 hours, and then sleeps 10 hours or more at night.  And often when she’s playing during the day and gets tired, she’ll just close her eyes and go to sleep where she is.  Example below:

To close this post, here’s a rare photo of the two of us, ready to go to breakfast with family on Thursday morning:

Grandparents are in town this week and we’re headed to the pumpkin patch with some friends from PEPS today, so I’m sure there will be many more photos to post soon!  Thanks for reading. :)

  1. She is a great smiler! and has big feet! Too cute. I know, 5 months!!! wow.

  2. I cannot believe she is 5 months! She is so beautiful. What a little ham in front of the camera. Conor sleeps the same way, and it takes all my strength not to tickle his toes.
