5 Months Old

Babes is 5 months old today!!  I have to say that as each day goes by, we all love her a little more.  The boys, even Koen, think she is the most amazing little thing ever.  They love making her laugh and smile.  Koen still can't pronounce `Nya' so everyone we meet thinks her name is `Mya'.  At least he got over calling her `Carla'.

She still eats every 3 hours during the day and every 5 hours at night.    She has two 45 minute naps and one 2 hour one, just like Koen used to do.

She still does not take a bottle and we'll likely start giving her some food soon.  I hope she likes it!  I've made her some homemade brown rice cereal and pureed pears so we'll see what she thinks of it. 
I love, love, looooooooooooooooove her eyes and I hope they stay blue!! The boys got Gary's hazel eyes, which are lovely, but you know, I wouldn't mind to see a little more of myself in her:)

She is super easy going and although she now detests the car seat, she is easily consoled by being held.  I have to say that we could be having a great family day and then we go on a car ride, with Nya screaming and we're stuck in traffic, and suddenly, it's the worst day ever.  I can't stand a screaming baby in the car when there's nothing you can do!

I know I've said it a million times but I hope I say it a million times more....I am so incredibly thankful for this beautiful gift.  She is amazing.  I am so thankful.  Love my family!!


  1. Nya truly is an extremely beautiful girl. She has such a sweetness about her.
