5 months

Caitlin is five months today and I feel like time is getting away from me. Caitlin has had two teeth for a month now and with her liking to suck on her hands or mine I have to be careful because they are sharp! Her eyes are still blue and they seem to be getting lighter still. She is also super blond. She does not resemble me in the least but looks quite a bit like Andrew did when he was a baby.

Caitlin is an angel. She is alert most of the time now learning about this world of ours. She can roll over from her back to her stomach and loves her exersaucer, play-mat and rattles. Caitlin loves water whether it be the bath or the pool. She also loves to babble and has the shrill squeal where she sounds like she's is unhappy or in pain but just exercising her voice! When she's getting tired or overstimulated she likes to be put down with a blanket right by the side of her face at which time she will immediately relax and often her eyes will close as she falls right to sleep.

Over the last month she has proven to be a marvelous traveler not making hardly a peep on two 14 hour drives. While on vacation she had a couple of firsts; she swung in a swing and seemed to love it and she also accompanied us on a hike.

We love having Caitlin in our family. she is a joy to be around.

P.S. Time please slow down because she is getting big too fast!
