Itty Bitty is on the move at 5 months old. Although Kinley is not crawling in the traditional since, she can get to any toy she wants including Mom's stack of magazines which she got a hold of and tore to shreds. She can also sit up for a few minutes on her own, she supports her torso on one of her hands. She has found her voice, and unfortunately has started using it to really try and get her way. She likes to be a part of the action and doesn't like being "by herself"...you know five feet away on her blanket in the family room while we are sitting at the table eating dinner. She's got several new nicknames. Daddy calls her Thumper because she is always got one leg that is kicking up and down, whether she's on her belly or on her back. Momma and the kids call her Froggy because of the way she gets up on her feet and bounces up and down. I really don't remember Abbey or Brady being so active and mobile at this age. Still no teeth, we joke that her gums are as bald as her noggin! Although her fuzz is starting to come in a little more. Sometimes when she wears her big bow-bow, it musses up the fuzz! I think she is starting to develop a little bit of a Momma's Girl complex, which is fine with me because I know one of these days she will be way too busy to want to snuggle with me. I know I say this each and every month, but I just can't believe how fast the time has gone by.
