Cecilia turned 5 months yesterday. I just can't believe it's been nearly half a year since she was born. I still remember my birth experience very, very vividly, and of course can't help but sometimes dwell on what didn't go well. I try to talk myself out of that, reminding myself that I got the best possible outcome-- healthy mama, happy, healthy baby.
Some of Cecilia's more recent developments: she can sit unsupported bent forward very well, and for a few seconds up straight before toppling. She also sits unsupported on her potty when I potty her. She's finally giggling consistently-- but only for her cousins!! Still, I guess that's better than not at all!! She's also finally outgrown 0-3 clothing and is in 3-6. We go to the doctor on Thursday for her 4 month (a little late...) so we'll see where she's measuring these days. She is a very chill and happy baby, and is really only fussy when she's tired and hungry (and the two really go hand in hand for her). Her eyes are basically the same green as mine now, but it's hard to tell in the photos since we don't have direct light on her.
Here are a few photos from her 5 month photoshoot:
