My Sweet Baby Jane,
I can hardly believe it. Last week, you turned five months. And, what a month it has been!
You are on the move. You may not crawl, but now that you've also learned to roll from your back to your front, you are a little rolling machine. The other night you rolled across the family room floor until you bumped into the fireplace. Then, you looked at me as if to say, "Hey Mama, do you think you could get this out of my way?"
In addition to your constant rolling, you've also figured out how to scrunch up your little legs and push off the floor with your feet. This moves you forward so that you can get things out of reach. This little move also helps you to frequently get stuck in the corner of your crib.
You continue to brighten our days with your smiles. More than one person has commented on how you smile "with your whole face." It is true and your smile is something I could stare at all day.
The only thing that might be better than your smiles is your sweet laugh. The more tired you get, the more you giggle. Your brother, Chris, knows how to make you laugh better than anyone. I'm sure it is the beginning of a special relationship the two of you will share.
You are getting bigger and stronger everyday. At your check-up, this past month, you weighed just over 16 pounds and measured almost 26 inches. I'm so thankful that you are strong and healthy.
Baby Jane, if I had to sum you up in one word, it would be happiness. You bring so much of it to our lives, it is impossible to imagine a life without you.
We love you sweet girl!
