Dear Rachel,

You’re five months old now. ALMOST half a year. How? I don’t know how. Time has flown. What happened to my newborn?

You reach now. The other day I came home from work and you reached for me. It touched my heart.  I just hope you’re not missing me. But you reached for me and I light up when I see you after work. You’re just the best.

You reach for the dogs. You love them! You giggle when they growl at each other and wrestle with toys and play.

You especially love your daddy. You are enamored and you simply glow when he’s near. Huge smiles and giggles and staring. Just in love. I’ll try not to be too jealous.

I’m weaning you right now, not by choice, but just because my body is done making milk. It’s hard. I have loved having that special connection with you; the fact that nobody else can do it is pretty cool. It was our thing, but now we won’t have it anymore. You’re cool with it – you like bottles!  And you’re starting to like rice cereal too…

You sleep through the night now. It’s lovely. Now that I get 8 hours of sleep again, I have no idea how I lived off 2 at a time, or even 4 at a time. What?!

You ADORE your jumparoo. You bounce, often violently, as long as we’ll let you. It’s so cute. And you still let me get ready for work in the morning. You stare as I put on makeup and especially enjoy the blow dryer, hah!

I love all of your sweet reactions. Your giggles and wide eyes and raspberries. You’re so fun!

You also love bathtime. I can’t wait to start going to swim class with you soon.  You will go crazy for it!

I’m crazy about you.  I love you to the moon and back.

Love,
Mommy
