My little Ivy is 5 Months Old

Ivy is 5 Months old!

Dear Ivy,

Hey Baby Girl! Today you are 5 months old…WHAAAAT?! I can’t really believe it! You’re growing up so fast so I thought it was time we sat down and told you how special you are.

Today was the first day you tried solid food.  I gave you the most beautiful avocado to try, it cost me $3.50 so it’d wanna be a good one too! You seemed more excited by the spoon than the avo to be honest, but you gave it a good crack and seemed to have fun so we’ll have another go tomorrow!

You are still a very easy-going baby, and you never whinge or ask for anything other than a feed or a cuddle.  Sometimes you cry because your big sister likes to lay on top of you, and you’re not a big fan of that manoeuvre but you will generally tolerate it for a little while because you love having your sister close to you. She also puts her feet in your face and is constantly waking you up from your sleep, but you know that if you pull her hair hard enough she’ll leave you alone.

You always smile whenever your big Sis comes near you.  She’s very funny and likes to make you laugh.  She’s dubbed you ‘Doo-Doo’ and likes to talk to you in a high pitched voice just like Mama does. She tells me that you’re her best friend and I have no doubt that as the two of you grow that won’t change as you already have a strong bond with your Sissy. Just a few nights ago we were trying to get Violet to go to sleep in her big girl bed and she was crying wouldn’t stop.  Even though you very rarely cry, you could here Violy in the next room and every time she cried, you cried too. We couldn’t do anything to settle or comfort you, but when Violy eventually calmed down, so did you!

You are the most beautiful baby, and whilst you look a lot like your sister in many ways (especially when you smile) you are very much your own person. You like to be involved in whatever is going around you, and you smile at anyone and everyone. When you get really excited, you make a loud screeching sound. It’s such a shocking and unexpected from such a sweet little baby, however it always makes us laugh and can only be likened to the sound that a Pterodactyl might make!

You have the longest arms and you like to swing them about which is seriously cute. You’re also our ‘tall’ baby and I expect it won’t be long before you pass your big sister in the height department as she’s at the bottom of the scale and you’re at the top! You look a lot like your Mama, and you have your great-grandfather’s eye shape just like your sister.  You have the most stunning beautiful blue eyes and people constantly stop us to comment on how lovely you are. When you smile, you look just like your Dadda so you’re a beautiful genetic mix that’s for sure!

You’ve slotted into our little family so easily and you are a true joy to be around. I cannot believe you are already trying to sit up and crawl and that my little baby is not so little anymore! Luckily you’re still small enough to want your Mama’s cuddles and can’t tell me to stop kissing your face yet.

Thank you for being such an easy, low maintenance baby, and for making us all so happy! I dare say that you’re sweet nature and good temperament will be enough for Mama to convince Daddy that we should eventually have a third! (Good Girl!)
