5 Months

Elizabeth is 5 months old today! This little girl is growing so much!

 She is still the happiest little thing, and is always ready with a smile!

 Her big brother is completely smitten these days, and can barely keep his hands off of her! Haha it's so sweet!  She gets lots of kisses and hugs.  Who can blame him!  I can't seem to get enough myself! I don't know if it's because she is the last little Petkoff baby, or what, but I just want to snuggle her all the time! In addition to all the love, Grey is also super protective of Elizabeth, and does NOT like it when she goes somewhere without him!
This month she finally grew big enough (with some pillows underneath) to jump in the exersaucer! She loves it! You will notice that she is wearing a bib in the photo below.  She is teething like crazy now and drools all over the place!

She is still sleeping in our room in her pack and play, but since she has decided in the last few days that she would rather "talk" to us in the middle of the night rather than sleep, her days are numbered in the room with us. She did finally start rolling over!  Woohoo! So, I feel better about the move to her own room, but I would really like her to roll a bit more.  Grey was sleeping on his stomach at this age because he would roll over by himself.  I need to stop stressing and just do it!
We went to the pediatric ophthalmologist this month, and Elizabeth will be having surgery on her eyelid. The surgeon said he didn't think it was an immediate concern, so he wants to wait until she is at least 6 months old.  We will probably wait until this summer, but I am glad that we got to talk to the doctor about it.  It sounds relatively minor for a surgery, if there is such a thing on an infant, so I am hopeful that this will be a quick fix.
