Today was the post wide yard sale at Ft. Stewart. I was so excited and expecting tons of yard sales and great deals like when we were at Ft. Riley. There weren't as many sales as I thought there would be but I still walked away with some good stuff!
I have always thought baby girls were just adorable with little barrets or bows. I hoped if I had a little girl she would have enough hair for these. Katelyn has hair but not enough for bows, but she doesn't need hair! So I decided to give it a whirl. I bought some ribbon and the clips and started making bows. It's really much easier than I anticipated and can't wait to make more so she'll have some to wear with different outfits and then once she gets more hair we can forego the headband.
My model. Isn't she a cute one?!?! hehe She likes it!
2 days ago Katelyn figured out how to roll from her back to her tummy. I was all excited!! She has been sleeping on her side at night and this has seemed to be working much better and we are all getting more sleep. So now that she can roll over, guess what?!? Sleeping on her side must be overrated, it's way more fun to roll over in her crib....except---she doesn't want to be on her tummy to sleep! Last night it didn't matter where we put her in the crib or what position we laid her in, she would find a way to roll over. I was so hopeful that once she figured out how to roll over she would sleep better at night since all of our friends' little ones love sleeping on their tummy and that was the missing link for them. Well of course, Katelyn MUST not be that easy! She wants to give us one more thing to try to figure out.
AHHHH baby girl......just find a position and sleep! It's going to be just us for a while and I know one person who needs some sleep! So for now, I'm holding out hope that when she figures out how to roll both ways, she'll find a way that she thinks is comfy and crash! Something has to work sooner or later, right?!
As you can see I'm catching up on blogging today. About a month ago we had our family pictures taken in Savannah at Forsyth Park. I was worried because I didn't know how Katelyn would do, but she did great and the photographer really got some great shots! I know some have already seen these on Facebook, but I wanted to post some for those family and friends who aren't facebookers!
Katelyn is 5 months old today and growing like a weed! She sure has seemed to sprout since her appt a month ago. In the last month she has started to make all kinds of noises, giggle giggle giggle, smile constantly and is getting the hang of eating solid foods. It just amazes me how much she changes each and everyday. She sure is a blessing and I'm cherishing every moment I get to spend with her!
Her unofficial stats: 13.4 # 24.5" (I'm pretty sure that the length at the drs appt last month was incorrect. This seems to be pretty accurate because she is outgrowing some of her clothes in the length department.)
