5 Months!

Audia turned 5 months old yesterday! We spent the afternoon with Auntie Heather and Uncle Lance, playing and chatting and having lunch. Audia had a lot of fun watching and grabbing at an Elmo puppet that Heather brought out. Looks like we'll be puppet shopping soon. She was such a hoot to watch!

As for her current stats, she is now 17 lbs, 9 oz and 27.25 Inches tall. This puts her at the 99th percentile for height and the 94th percentile for weight. Tall and skinny like her daddy :-)

Last week we noticed that she had cut her first tooth! It still isn't all the way up yet, but I think it's just a matter of days. Unfortunately for her, I think it's going to be a double whammy, as there is a visible lump next to the cut tooth and she has been extremely fussy and clingy the past few days. I feel so bad because she will bite on something and then cry, and then bite on it again and cry again. Poor dear seems to be having a lot harder time with the second one than she had with the first.

Despite the weather being cold (in the 60's) and rainy, I've been attempting to make her a sun bonnet without a pattern. My first attempt is just a little a bit big (heavy on the sarcasm here...) and a little too floppy.....Good thing I bought extra fabric!



Just one question:

What does a guy have to do to get his own bonnet?


Just mail me fabric of your choice, and measure your noggin' and i'll whip one up for ya'. You'd look so smashing in a bonnet, too, Mike!
