And I can't find the flipping cord to my camera!! So, I took some pictures, but they will have to wait for a bit...
Yesterday, Willow was 5 months old. She celebrated by having a check up at the doctors. She is 14 lbs. 1 oz; I am sorry I do not remember her height. The doctor says she is thriving and totally happy and healthy (which we knew). She also got SHOTS--one in her arm; 2 in her legs. Which meant that last night--at precisely 11:30 p.m. (when we were going to bed) she decided to wake up and be irritable all night. (Poor girl) But, this morning--same 'ole smiley self.
The doctor said she could keep going on the solids--1-2 times a day. So, last night--she got bananas! (Her expression was great--which is what the damn picture will show!)
Fast forward to this morning at around 3 a.m.--she could not sleep unless she was in my arms (even then not necessarily) - I was in our bed with her and Michael came into bed with us (husband sacrificed and slept on the couch downstairs). At one point I woke up to see my two children snuggling up to me. Sometimes I cannot believe my good fortune.
Here's the pictures:
