Dear Gracyn,

5 MONTHS OLD! Wow! You are growing by leaps and bounds! I am guessing you are 15 to 15.5lbs ....also guessing you are around 25.5 inches long. Now that you are more active, we are seeing the baby rolls disappear....kinda makes me sad! You wear 6 and 6-9 month clothes, size 3 diaper, and size 2 shoe. Your hair is growing back in light brown and your eyes look like they are going to stay a gorgeous blue.....and your ears are pierced now!!! You look just like your Daddy, but your disposition reminds me of your continue to be a VERY CONTENT and EASY BABY!....and a smiley one at that!

You are a scheduled baby....which quite honestly wasn't hard to figure out when it comes to breastfeeding and sleeping. New to your schedule are solid foods! Your Mommy is a rockstar Mommy in my eyes....after working all day, she finds time to make your baby food with the Baby Bullet and she freezes it. So far, you love butternut squash, sweet potatoes, apples, pears, bananas and rice HATE peas, avocados and oatmeal. Mommy and Daddy introduced a sippy cup of water or juice during dinner. Hopefully by offering water/juice in a sippy cup, you won't lose your interest in breastfeeding.

Also new to your schedule was a transition to your crib at about 4.5 months. Grandma and Grandpa Thompson bought you the Angle Care monitoring system that detects motion from your breathing in the crib ....which made the transition from Mommy and Daddy's room less stressful on their parts! You on the other hand transitioned like a CHAMP!..... Then again, you sleep so soundly and through the night that you'd probably sleep just about anywhere with no problem!

This past month you learned to roll both ways and sometimes we see you trying to scoot on the floor. You just started reaching for me. * melt my heart* and you also started raising your arm when we wave wave bye, bye to you....we'll take that as a sign of your first attempt at a wave!

You love to play with your toys....especially in your jumperoo! You also sit for short periods of time before you lean over and topple! It is so dang cute to watch you hit all these milestones!

Just as I was getting ready to post this, Mommy informed me that you are cutting your first tooth! OMG! Wish I could freeze time!

Love you with all my heart!
Grandma Dason (also called Grandma Shelly by your cousin Nevaeh)!

Everyday, Mommy waves goodbye and says goodbye to Gracyn.....and she sees this on her daily baby video. Today she raised her arm up each time Mommy said goodbye....not a wave yet with her hand, but her arm went up (right arm) each time! She is making the connections! SUCH A SMARTIE!

PRICELESS! her hand on Daddy's face!


Your Mommy amazes me....she made apple pear purée.....after working all day!!! You are one lucky little girl!......And you loved it!


Haha Daddy is multitasking! Daddy had to use the bathroom so this is Gracyn's makeshift "your baby can read" video spot!

Hanging out in my crib while Mommy gets ready for work! (P.S. the transition to the crib at night has been a smooth one!)
