Eden is 5 months and i absolutely love this stage! Quite frankly i have loved every stage, but this one is so fun! She is the most observant little girl and loves watching everything EVERYONE is doing. she is super social and wants to be in the middle of whatever is going on. She smiles at almost everyone, but has started to show signs of nervousness around strangers or people she doesn't know. She will search the room until she finds Am or I. (I sort of love that.) She still loves bath time and goes absolutely NUTS.. kicking, splashing, and most recently.. trying to roll over! She has swallowed a few gulps of tub water i'm sure! :) She sleeps through the night so well and typically puts herself down around 8:00 and sleeps until 7-8. We feed her before we go to bed at 9:30.. and she eats so well because she is half awake at that time. She is soo good at grabbing things and wants to touch anything and everything around her. She is still such a slobber bucket and is constantly eating her hands and putting things in her mouth. I am just waiting for a tooth to pop through! She stands up so well and rolls over like a champ! I am thinking she will be an early walker/crawler because she is already so busy and shows signs of trying to 'scoot'.. Crazy girl!

The other day we took her to a doctor's appointment for Am's shoulder. I thought "no big deal.. she'll just sit on my lap and hang out". UMM NO. I felt like i was wrestling a toddler the entire appointment! She was grabbing at everything in the office, only wanted to look at her books for .2 seconds, wiggly as ever, and talking and smiling to all the doctors. They loved her! It was hilarious but i can definitely see that in the near future it is going to become hard to take her places because she is so busy!



Happy 4 months baby girl! This month Eden really started to get big! At her 4 months well check she was 15lb 1oz and 25 inches long. She was in the 82nd percentile for weight and 79th for height! She absolutely LOVES bath time. We recently started filling up the big tub with a few inches of water and put her directly in the bath.. and she goes crazy! She splashes, kicks, squeals, and moves around like a little swimmer! It is hilarious. Ammon makes her smile more than anyway, and we have noticed that she typically prefers men over women! She is still sooo slobbery and loves sucking her hands. She is starting to grab things with her hands really well, and can roll from side to side. She discovered her toes this month too! I was so excited about that! While we were at lake powell, i looked over one morning and she had both feet in her little hands... I about died i was so excited. She loves standing up and has really strong legs and great balance. She smiles at just about everyone and is the happiest babe around. I love her so much! This month she was more inconsistent with sleeping through the night, but i assume it's because she has grown so much.

My favorite face she makes while she sleeps


Here are some things about Eden at the 3 month mark. (go Haley!... only two months behind)

Eden is obsessed with sucking on her hands! She can roll from side to side.. just not all the way over yet. She loves being swaddled before bedtime. She loves her stroller and being on-the-go. She loves the baby mobile above her bed and watching it spin around. She recently discovered herself in the mirror above her carseat and stares at herself the whole  car ride. She is a constant slobbery mess! I have never seen so much drool in my life. She always has lint in her toes and her dad calls her 'the lint factory'. She is OBSESSED with bathtime and likes taking naps on mom and dad's bed. We have been working on her torticollis stretches and she hates it! She is getting a little more even though and will look to the left side a lot more frequently.

This month eden got to visit Jackson Hole! She was so good for the 5 hour drive and we had so much fun together hiking the Tetons. Eden was also blessed this month, which was an amazing day! I will have to do a separate post for that whole day.
