Five months!


Five months!


Maggie is now five months old!

(Insert cliches regarding the swiftness of time here. They're all true!)

Five months!

 As my sister jokes, "she's getting pretty cute."

It has been a big month for Maggie. She can now roll over from front to back and from back to front. If you put her down on her back, she arches her back and wiggles all over the place. It is officially no longer safe to put her on the couch and turn away for even a second. (Alas, all good things come to an end eventually.)

She also cut two teeth! At the same time! Check out her little choppers. She's a non-stop drooling, gnawing, slobbering machine! She had a few rough days when the teeth popped through, but overall has handled this new development with aplomb. Maggie is generally a very happy, content, easy-going baby.

Check out those two little choppers!

Here she is in her orange cord/orange wood-grain BBBPs and (at least in the shot above) an adorable knit/crocheted hat that we picked up at a silent auction to benefit Joe's preschool. I am pretty excited that Maggie is almost big enough for 6 month sizes now. Guess what that means? I can start making Oliver + s clothes for her! Woohoo! I recently bought the Hopscotch Top and Skirt and I'm excited to sew up some cute tops for the Magster.



Five months!

In other news, I started my new job last week. I think I'm going to love it - everyone is very friendly and the work is interesting and challenging. But I have so much to catch up on and so many names and faces to learn! It's all a bit overwhelming for this semi-introvert. The rush hour commute will take some getting used to, to say the least (but these awesome CD lectures my dad loaned me are really helping to pass the time). I know it's going to get easier, and I think it's going to be great. Thanks for hanging in there while I adjust to all of these life changes!

  3. Maggie is absolutely adorable, thanks for sharing her monthly pictures. My Ruby was born one month earlier than your Maggie, so it's nice to see "comparisons". I can't believe she has two teeth already; I think I've been telling people for almost a month now that Ruby is teething but maybe not yet...she certainly drools and chomps on everything though?

    1. Yes, lucky me, I am blessed with early teethers! Joe also cut his first tooth before five months. I guess the good aspect of this is that he was done cutting his molars well before his second birthday. But the intervening time was NONSTOP TEETHING. Sleep? Meh, I'll sleep when I'm dead. :-)

  4. Who would not be that happy with an orange woodgrain butt? She's the best!
    Hmm the idea of those lectures almost makes me wish to be spending regular rush hours sitting in the car!

  7. Maggie has got to be the happiest looking baby ever! I'm glad you are enjoying your new job.. what a big transition after spending so long in your old position! As a fellow introvert (not too semi here) I get how draining the initial learning of the names and ins and outs in new situations can seem draining at first, even when the people and work are great. Luckily that just lasts a little while!
