5 Months!

My goodness...where has all the time gone? Moagie is FIVE months! Holy Crap! I can't believe how fast time goes when you have a baby....(and how slow times goes when you're pregnant.) I wish I could reverse the two!!

A lot is about to change in our life...we're moving across the country from Ohio to Arkansas for Ben's job. We're excited about the new adventure but with all the preparation it sure doesn't leave much time for blogging. Here's a quick update:

Morgan is a very smiley baby. She is happy and that means the world to me! She's sitting up on her own now which is exciting. She doesn't have any teeth yet, but we're getting close to starting her on solid food. I think we'll get out the rice cereal once our move is complete...three weeks from now. She still sleeps through the night and seems to be content with just formula so putting it off seems fine. Plus our pediatrician mentioned that some research shows that waiting until 6 months can be beneficial. I am getting excited about seeing her faces when she tastes different foods for the first time, but I'm happy to put off the extra mess and feeding time until we're settled in our new house.

She LOVES her Luv U Zoo Jumperoo so much. She just goes bonkers in it and its hilarious! She also loves putting her feet in her mouth along with anything else she can get her hand on. She loves her toys....especially Jacques the Peacock and Sophie La Giraffe. Its so fun to watch her try to figure her world out. She is very engaging and alert. She loves people and dogs and all kinds of stimulation...a total party animal!

She really is my pride and joy!!! Here are some photos (and a video) from the last month...


  1. Your little girl is absolutely adorable! My husband and I live in Fayetteville, Arkansas. And we have a 1 1/2 month old little boy.. so if you need some new friends when you come here (and are moving close by) here's my email =)I dont know if it will be the case for you but I know what its like to move somewhere and not know anybody! =/

    God bless!

  2. she is a doll! 5 months sure has flown. i'm sad to hear you are leaving ohio (you are the only fellow ohioan blogger i follow!) but wish you the best in your new home. :)

  3. She is getting so big! I love that sweet smile. I can tell she is your pride and joy! You are beaming! Arkansas sounds like fun. I hope your little family will make many happy memories there. Love new adventures!!

  4. Wow, that 's a big move. Congratulations!! It'll be worth it once you're all settled in. The first thing I thought was "She can't move out of her house with that beautiful nursery!!" But I'm sure you can recreate it easily =).

    She's sitting on her own? That's awesome. Sofia seems ready, but hasn't been able to do it, but I'm glad to know that it's possible at this age.

    Can you believe how fast it's going? I know that's what everyone says, but I had no idea.

    SO GOOD to hear from you! XOXO

  5. She's just gorgeous! It's been an awesome experience to follow your blog and see a beautiful baby to show for it. Good luck on your move!
