In two-and-a-half weeks my baby girl will be half-a-year old. thatisjustnotfair. I mean, we all know that time flies when you have a little one, as it most certainly did with with Ellie, but when you have a not-so-little-one AND a little one, there's just no keeping track of every little minute like there was with number one.
Two Saturdays ago baby Caroline turned five months old and we took the official pics. She was as sweet as she always is, and even happy to have her sister join her in a shot or two. At five months old Caroline weighed 17lbs, 6oz. Forgot to take her length.
Caroline has been sitting unassisted for about three weeks now - she sits up and gazes into her sisters eyes and wonders at Fiona sitting not so far away. She squawks now if we put her on her back because she'd rather be sitting up and looking at the world around her.
The only other remarkable thing last month was that Caroline had her first cold. Ellie came home from school with a runny nose and by the end of the week we all had it. So Caroline got to experience the fun that is a bulb syringe multiple times a day. She loved it. notsomuch.
Oh! forgot about Valentine's Day! Caroline's first Valentine's - she got two valentines, one from each of her parents, and flowers from her daddy. The boys are going to have a hard time prying the Crawford girls away from their daddy.
