Saralyn is 5-months old! She’s a monster in terms of length and weight, but the sweetest baby ever. She is patient, and loves to hold hands. She only cries when she is sleepy. (Sometimes she waits an hour or more when she is hungry before she throws a fit.)
She has great concentration skills. She will play with a toy and you can see the little wheels in her head spinning. She is really starting to watch people eat. When that first tooth gets here, she is really going to enjoy food. No sign of that first chopper yet though, so wait she must.
Saralyn is starting to also look for objects she drops. However, she is not rolling over regularly yet. She’s done it once or twice by accident, but not purposefully.
She loves the exersaucer, baths and mommy time. She doesn’t care much for tummy time (unless it’s with daddy. She and daddy have some fun.) Saralyn is pretty casual about her own… um… messes. She just poops or horks or drools happily all over the place and it doesn’t even register. Wet or dry, the girl is pretty happy.
She is trying to help me type, so I will let her guest blog:

Clearly, she has her daddy’s way with words. These five months have gone by in a blur. I will try to keep up and update about her more.
