5 Months Old!

Can you believe Lorelei is 5-months old?  I can't.  She is so sweet.  Here are some 5-month old Lorelei facts:
--While we were in TX I had her ears pierced and her picture made by my friend Kaci, owner of Sweet Southern Photography.
--Her hair is growing in quite nicely, and very blonde.  Unlike Sydney, she had hardly any hair when she was born. Also unlike Sydney, none of the hair she DID have fell out, so in a way I feel like she has more than Syd did at the same age.
--She is pretty much in all 6-month clothing.  There are a few 3-6 month outfits she can still wear, but not many.
--She has not started eating solid foods yet.  I like to wait until the 6-month mark before I start solids (even rice cereal).
-- She's finally sleeping in her crib (as opposed to the Moses basket in my room), although not through the night, currently.  A few weeks ago she was sleeping through the night, but I think she's going through a growth spurt. As long as she goes BACK to sleep after she wakes up in the middle of the night, which she does, I don't mind.
--She rolls over nearly every time I lay her on her back (she hasn't mastered the tummy-to-back roll yet). 
--She loves cooing and laughing at Sydney. 
--She definitely loves her mommy.  Especially now that she's entering the separation anxiety phase.  She is my little buddy.

Attempting "Hook 'em Horns".

Heel stretch.

The "Bend and Snap".

I tried to capture her chunky legs, but these pictures don't do them justice.  They are quite chunky; it looks like I've wrapped at least three rubber bands around each leg.
