Baby Girl: 5 Months

I feel like Brynn has really gone from a baby-baby to just a kinda-baby this month. She's getting to be a little more independent and will play with toys for a few minutes by herself. She will sit in the high chair and watch me cook or clean and be pretty content.

She still continues to be a very happy and content baby. She is very tolerant of the aggressive love that Tate gives her on a regular basis.

She has been eating vegetables for a couple weeks now and has loved everything she's tried--butternut squash, green beans, and sweet potatoes. She also eats oatmeal really well.

She immediately rolls from her back to her stomach and it pushing herself up on her hands. She may be getting into a crawling position soon...but hopefully it will be a while before she actually starts moving.

She did not enjoy her first bubble bath. It might have been the fact that she kept slipping off that bath chair and almost drowning though.
She started using her bouncer and she loves it...except when Tate grabs that big yellow sun, pulls it back as far as he can and it slams into her little face.
She is the greatest eater EVER. At least in the "children I've given birth to" category.
She is a rolling machine. She rolls to her stomach as soon as she is put down on her back.
Her chub is taking over.

Baby Girl: 4 Months


Brynn's personality is really starting to come out. She is a very happy little girl and rarely cries. When she does cry she has a good reason (needs a diaper change or feeding, Tate is loving on her a little too much, she's tired...). Because of this awesome personality trait, I'm quite okay with her refusing a binki. She eats and sleeps like a champion. She takes 3-4 two-hour naps a day and sleeps from 9pm to 6am pretty regularly. Please don't think we are just lucky. Though she's a great baby we did have to work really hard to get her to sleep so well. She loves watching Tate from a distance.
 
This month we spent some time in Montana visiting Courtney. Brynn loved having another baby to talk to and laugh with.
She started getting super chubby. Look at those rolls!
She started holding her head up much better during tummy time and she has rolled a few times.


She is loving chewing on her fingers and often does it while sleeping (if she isn't swaddled well enough).
One of her last days in our condo.
Playing on her tummy while Mom and Dad backed up the condo.

Baby Girl: 3 Months

This month, Brynn finally learned how to suck on a binki. Turns out she was just starving (I was at a Relief Society activity and she was home with Dad) but it was a start.
 
She looked super cute in overalls but hated wearing them.

 She got her first cold and spent many days like this
She met Santa many times
Ward Christmas party right after a huge blowout...she showed up in a much cuter outfit.
At the Stringham Polar Express
At Fotofly Santa
She wore many Christmas outfits
She fell asleep while playing

She went to her first Friend Christmas Party
and was not amused that she was not being put to sleep.
She read some books
She was pretty dang adorable

Year of Tate: Day 347

We visited the Stringtown Polar Express today and it pretty much made Tate's life.
We even got to visit Santa's workshop and Tate told Santa that he wanted a "choo-choo."

Year of Tate: Day 345

We decorated the tree today and by "we" I mean Tate. We only got about 15 ornaments on the tree before I decided 2 year olds decorating is a bad idea but I let Tate do it. He only decorated the bottom three rows and he only did about a 3 foot wide section of those rows.

He's pouting because he didn't want his picture taken.
After he had decorated, he took some of the ornaments off to play with. During this time his dragons are kissing Winnie the Pooh goodnight.
