I seriously cannot believe how fast our sweet baby has grown! Every month I’ve been taking ‘monthly photos’, just for memories sake, but this month hit me with a ton of nostalgia for my baby girl. She’s starting to fill out (finally!), and her baby face is looking more and more like a little girl every day.
I can’t believe how fast this time has flown. She’s so independent now, which both hurts my heart and also makes me so proud. She hates being confined and stuck in a area- she likes to move, she likes to see, she likes to be a part of what’s going on around her.
She’s not yet rolling over, but she practices by herself all the time! She can roll from her back to tummy, so that’s fun and sometimes causes some tears. She also can be placed in the sitting position and holds herself up super well!
Her favorite things are chew toys (specially, this guy right here) , sitting up in her bobby, and being with people.
Seeing my home-made photos of her makes me ache for the time right after her birth. Those first few days were so hard, and felt like such a battle- but they still held their own magical moments. I wish I would have taken the time and money to have gotten professional newborn photos so we could have the little wrinkly feet and our tired faces on print- and didn’t have another thing to worry about ourselves!
Five months later, I’ve struggle with motherhood. It looks different then I thought it would, and there are weird emotional moments I never would have expected. But I love little Joy so much, she’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
