5 months

I can't believe my babies are 5 months. It has been a year and 15 days since we found out there were two of them and I still look at my two little girls and think how did I get so lucky? How did I get two perfect little girls? I love them so much and it has been amazing to watch them get so big. 380 days ago J and I were sitting at Glory Days celebrating/freaking out trying to figure out how we would be able to afford two babies. I have always believed God doesn't give us more then we can handle and I think he has taken care of us and these two girls so far (him and our parents!)

You have gotten so tall and are such a little lady already. You are my wiggle worm. You hate to sit still and want to stand and sit up. You want to play with all the toys and will even take the good toys from your sister. Your daddy cracks you up. He sings funny songs to you or makes silly faces and dances and you laugh. You could be crying one minute and laughing hysterically the next. You love to play and hate to take naps. I have to almost hold you down to get you to sleep, even when you are so upset and can barely keep your eyes open. You are quick with your big crocodile tears when Mama or Daddy puts you down but you are also very quick with a smile and your big laughing eyes. You are starting to grow lots of hair and you are very good at holding onto things. You will carry around toys and burp clothes. Daddy even had you bring down a bottle of nose spray. You love to grab onto toys and shake them and eat them. It won't be long until you are all over the place.

Love you,

My little bug. You are my snuggle bug and your mama's girl. You love to snuggle and the way you press your little face into the curve of my neck melts my heart every time. You are our serious baby. You are sweet and patient. You happily let your sister steal your toys and you wait your turn. You watch the world with wide open eyes and love to observe what is going on around you. I can just tell from the look in your eyes that you catch everything that happens and you are taking everything in, learning it all. You are my little perfectionist who loves to get everything just right. You are an excellent sitter and you have started to grab at your toys and hold on to them. You roll from you front to your back. You are our perfect little bug. I can't wait to watch you get big and I hope that you will always want to give me your precious smile that lights up your face and that you will always want to snuggle.

I love you,
