Five Months

My iPhone is on the fritz so no iPhone Friday today.  Instead, here are her week late five month photos!  She is just getting cuter by the day.  And her personality is really starting to show through.  I just love this little munchkin.

Around 5 or 6 AM yesterday morning I brought Rilo into bed with us to feed her, in hopes that she would fall back asleep.  She slept until around 8.  And when she woke up, she decided to wake me up too...By grabbing my face and planting a big ol' wet one on my mouth.  And I can't say there's any better way to wake up.  I just can't get enough of her!

Thank you to my hand model/tickler Jess:

Oh, and one last one to make you laugh:

At 5 months:

  • She is a little water baby like her Daddy.  She loves the pool and the tub.  She likes to float on her back and kick and splash.
  • She makes this funny gasping noise, like something is so surprising.
  • She still doesn't really like to be on her tummy, so she has only rolled back to tummy a handful of times.  No use rolling onto her tummy if she hates it I guess.
  • She scoots and wiggles, so she's never in the same spot you left her in.
  • She loves to bring me in close so that our noses are touching.  We just stare and smile at each other.
  • Out of all the songs we sing to her, she randomly love You Are My Sunshine.  She turns and looks at you and smiles EVERY time you sing it to her.
  • She is becoming pals with Sawyer!

A Day At the Zoo

A bunch of us went to the Brookfield Zoo on the most humid day of the summer.  We were drenched in sweat the instant we got there.  One lovely lady, may have said after being at the zoo for 5 minutes, "how long do we have to be here until we've gotten our money's worth".  Despite the heat, Rilo was a real trooper.  I tell you, that girl is great when we go places!

I'm excited because I'm ordering a baby carrier in a few days, once I can decide on which one I want.  I love my Moby, but it is WAY too hot to wear these days.  I think Rilo will love hangong out in her carrier.

The "big girls" got to play at the splash pad at the zoo to cool off!

They Call Her Mellow Rillo

That title is for you G-pa Cyle!  I adore this yellow dress from Target.  I couldn't resist it when I saw it!

Rilo really loves Sawyer these days.  She lights up whenever she sees him and tries to pet him when he gets close.  The other day while Rilo was on her playmat, I walked in the kitchen to grab something and I heard Sawyer start to whine.  Rilo, while "petting" Sawyer grabbed a chunk full of his hair and wouldn't let go.  She's going to give him a run for his money when she starts moving around!

Also, Adam would like everyone to know he just happened to be in the same shirt I took pictures of him in last time.

Well, this is what I get for trying to take pictures of Rilo Jane at bedtime.  She was completely uninterested in me and wanted to play in the grass.  Not to mention she kept burying her face in the blanket out of exhaustion.  But she's still cute!

And a face plant for good measure...

So sleepy!

Navy Blue Shoes

I have been waiting for Rilo to be able to fit into these navy blue shoes, or any of her shoes in general!
