5 months has come and gone! We can't love this girl more than we already do! It is amazing how your heart grows with each child in such a different way! Lots has happened this month:

Still in size 2 diapers, but not for much longer. She has to be well into 15 lbs. I am guessing since we have not been to the doc this month! 

She has learned a new trick where she shakes her head back and forth and her and her sister think its hilarious! She also is really close to sitting up on her own. She can stand great with help and has a strong leg support.

On May 25, she held her own bottle. 

On May 31, we dedicated this sweet cheeks back to the Lord. Such a special day. (More to come on that!)

She learned to blow bubbles on May 27th and learned to roll from her back to tummy consistently. On June 6th, we all had a rough night because she forgot she could roll back from tummy to back. She has learned now for the most part. We invested in a breathable bumper (from a sweet neighbor) and that has helped with her legs and arms getting stuck when she rolls. 

She had her second cold June 2nd, which lead to her first ER trip. Poor baby. 

Maggie used to fuss when we would lay her down for naps and bedtime, but we gave her a pink silky lovey and it has been a lifesaver! She snuggles with it immediately and sucks her thumb and is asleep in no time! 

We started a new schedule at 4 and a half months. Went from feeding every 3 hours to every 4. Maggie seems to like it much better, sleep much better, and spit up a little less. Mommy really likes one less feeding a day! 

We had our first beach trip last week and she did awesome! She loved being out on the beach with her towel and took some good naps! Mae would never do this at her age! Again, I reiterate she is the easiest baby on the planet. 

She loves her sister and smiles and laughs at her a lot, even though the random hits and accidents hurting her! Daddy can get her to laugh a good bit, too! 

She is currently going through some kind of growth spurt. I dont know if we both are dehydrated in this heat, or if she is just growing! But I have had to give her more milk than normal and she is waking up earlier than her normal 7-7:30 time in the morning starving. This too shall pass. I secretly enjoy the quiet, alone time with her. Just me and my littlest, 

Maggie girl, we love you with all of our heart and soul and are forever blessed to have you complete our little family! Thank you for always putting a smile on our face and making hard days so much easier just by being here! We love you to the moon and back x 100!
