It's November 11, 2013 and you are 5 months old.
You are starting to engage with us more. We are getting lots of smiles and one or two chuckles. You babble a lot...mostly squeals. You will imitate us if we squeal first.
You only roll from back to front, though you have rolled from front to back. You want to be on your tummy and not your back. You are really trying to figure out crawling. You won't be crawling for a while, but it doesn't stop you from trying. You just really want to chase Chloe down.
I think I see a tooth coming through your gums. I guess we'll see in a few weeks.
You still haven't started solids. I'm tempted to try them a few weeks early. You are a big girl and recently started waking up to eat in the middle of the night. I wonder if letting you have a few extra calories via solids will help you sleep?

Speaking of sleep. You sleep on your stomach. **Gasp** I lay you down on your back, but you immediately roll to your side or tummy and fall right to sleep. The doctor told me to leave you be if you rolled to your tummy on your own.
Just for fun...Chloe at 5 months and MJ at 5 months. The older Mackenzie gets the less I think she resembles Chloe. They have very different eye shapes and noses. Mackenzie has dimples and it seems her mouth is bigger. I know it seems strange that I compare them, but so many people ask me if Mackenzie looks like Chloe did. My response is, "you can tell they are sisters, but they don't look exactly alike." In fact, based on this picture I'm not even sure you can tell they are sisters. ha.
