Happy 5 months, June Claire!

June Claire is FIVE MONTHS!

This post is a little late, but better late than never, right?!

June Claire turned FIVE months on September 21. Where has the time gone?

You wear size 0-3 month clothes.

I haven't put shoes on you yet, but I'm pretty sure they're a 0.

You are still in NB or size 1 diapers, depending on the brand.

The last time you were weighed, you were 8 pounds 13 ounces.

You have become such a JOY in the past month! If we lay you on the floor on a quilt, you will roll and roll and be at the other end of the room before we know it! You lift your head up SO well. If you're on your belly, you will pick that little head up and look all around you. You are nosy just like your sister! Your occupational therapist, Victoria, says that she is so proud of you for how far you have come! Those prayers and her hard work is paying off. You coo and even laugh sometimes at us. Your daddy loves it so much when he talks in his ridiculously high pitched voice to you, and you smile and giggle in return.

Over the past month, we have started having babysitters more frequently. For one, Michael & I are in marriage counseling, so every Wednesday night we have someone keep the girls for us. So far Mamaw, Kayla (and Brittany & Meme!), and Baylee have kept them. June is NOT a fan of anything other than my boobs. She fusses herself into exhaustion before she will take a bottle. However, my sister Elizabeth must have the magic touch, because June NEVER fusses for her. It's crazy! The weekend after Sara's birthday, my mom & cousin kept them for one night, then my sister Kayla and another cousin kept them for a second night while Michael and I took a two night getaway to Destin, FL. I have a few really nice pictures to share with ya'll from that, but later though. :) Aunt Kayla was amazing! She got up with June all in the night and even went to work the next morning! She has proven herself to us (after accidentally putting on diapers backwards....twice -- but we still love you!!) and I told her she is officially inducted into the "Babysitters List". She is pretty excited, because she loves her nieces & they love her right back!
PS -- if anyone can tell me how to work this new picture thing, I would appreciate it! Thanks!

5 months doesn't even seem POSSIBLE!

and, ahem. i've changed as many diapers as some parents, considering i've been doing it for nearly 20 years now...and i will still sometimes find myself with a backwards diaper. i mean, i never ACTUALLY finish putting it on that way, but still. i blame lack of sleep :D

i'm glad you and hubby got to go on a getaway--i'm sure that was much needed and a nice breather :) hope the counseling is going well!
