5 months old!

Dear Alice,

I'm having a hard time finding the right words for this month's letter.
Sometimes I feel like I say the same things over and over:
I can't believe how fast the last 5 months have flown by.
We love you so much it makes our hearts hurt.
You are such a blessing to our little family!

But each month does seem to go by faster than the one before.
And each month we fall even more in love with you.
(How is that even possible?!)
Each month we are even more thankful for the blessing God gave us with you.

You are so much fun, Alice Claire!
Your smiles are contagious.
I'm pretty certain you save the best ones for Daddy.

Your laugh is so sweet.
Sometimes it's a simple, but hearty, "Haa".
Other times it escalates into an all-out giggle.

You reach for everything you see.
And once you have what you want, it goes into your mouth.

You've mastered rolling from your belly to back,
but have only gone from back to belly a couple times.

You LOVE taking baths.
I'm pretty sure you'd stay in there forever if we let you.

All in all, you're a very easy baby.
We joke that it's God's way of making sure you have a little brother or sister someday.

I love you, sweet baby girl!
And I love being your Mama.
