5 Months Old

Wow! Hannah is now five months old. Time really has gone by too quickly. It seems like just yesterday I was bottle feeding her using the boppy as a support and now she's sitting in a highchair eating oatmeal cereal! Hannah's developing at an astonishing rate lately. Her newest accomplishments are sitting up unassisted for short periods of time (2-5 minutes), standing by holding onto the coffee table, rolling all over the house to chase the cats, and babbling so loudly that it's impossible to hear anything other than her! She is continuing to have sleep issues which make things rough for Kyle and I as well as her, but we have reccently decided that we think it is related to teething. We still don't see any teeth, but the other day when she was crying inconsolably and chewing hard on Kyle's finger we gave her some teething tablets and she was immediately knocked out. The funny thing is that there is a warning on the box that says that the child may fall asleep quickly after their pain is removed and we thought, "Yeah, right!" but it's true. Those tablets have brought almost immediate paccification and sleep each time we have tried them reccently. We tried them about a month ago when we thought her teeth were bothering her, but they had no effect. It must not have been her teeth that time, because this time they really worked! Hannah has been having lots of fun rolling around the house and chasing the cats and keeping me hopping. Twice now she has bit Sadie's tail (our cat) and continues to light up every time she sees one of the cats. It's quite cute to see her arch her back to see them and then roll around trying to get at them as they walk by.
I've got several new videos for your viewing pleasure. Just click on the links and enjoy! This video is Hannah playing with her Papaw Like. one is of Hannah playing with Kyle's Uncle Jimmy. This one is of Hannah playing with her friend Evelyn. This last one is just of Hannah looking generally cute!
