Genesis Five Month Update: The Girl Who Found Her Voice

“To the world you may be ONE PERSON, but to ONE PERSON you may be the world”

Hey Sugar Plum,

Can’t believe it’s time to write another update, but time is flying by! You are five months old and really getting this “growing up thing” down. Some may call me crazy, but I have already started mentally preparing your first birthday party. The more time we spend together the more we become in sync and start to understand each other; especially non-verbally. Some of the best moments are when we just sit quietly and talk with our hearts. However, this month you have found your voice and LOVE using it. You have developed this high pitch scream…should I say perfected this high pitch scream (because you practice a lot); used mostly to express moments of joy. You also have learned how to “fake”; fake cough, fake cry, and fake not being sleepy (this one is your favorite). One thing you are very open and honest about though is how much you love us this month! You pull me and Daddy’s faces when you want to kiss and hug (it seriously melts us every time). Needless to say it was another great month on the books and I couldn’t be happier having you with us. Check out some other exciting moments from the month below.

Lake Arrowhead- you went on your first family vacation and first hike.

Mommy’s Birthday – I got to celebrate my 30th birthday while on our family vacation!  Hands down the most meaningful birthday ever.

Your first Valentine’s Day

Visitors from NYC – Aaron and Victoria (Mommy’s friends from college) came to visit !

Other things we have noticed this month:
-Your hair is starting to grow in pretty curly and thick! It had started to thin out a bit in the back (where you sleep), but now it’s growing in pretty fast.
– First laugh (Jan 22)
– You are starting to sit up (unassisted)!

Such a big girl sitting up!

You LOVE:
-WATER! Bath time has become one of your favorites; you love splashing the water with your feet onto your face.
-MUSIC! Anytime I have it on in the car or the house you kick, squeal, and even try and hum.
– eating your toes more than milk; anytime you can get those things in your mouth you try.
-T.V. You become mesmerized when it’s on (maybe because I don’t let you watch it often).
-Mommy and Me class. We went to our first one this month and you loved all the colors and noise in the room. The instructor also has a really happy voice that you are amused by.

Delicious!

Delicious!

You could pass on:
-Strangers. When people you don’t know try and approach you it tends to not end too well; unless they are babies or toddlers.
-being put down. This month you were attached to mommy and daddy.
-being indoors. You are so much like Daddy in this area. Mommy could cuddle up and watch movies all day, but Daddy loves being outside.
