At five months, Talitha is rolling and wiggling all over the place. She is very interested in toys and any objects within her reach. Even while nursing she is grabbing and pulling at my shirt or the blankets. She is very interactive with her sisters and her face lights up when she sees them.
Talitha nurses every three to four hours and usually goes to bed for the night around 11 pm. She starts the day some where between 7 and 8 am. She takes about three naps, too. She goes to sleep better if she is swaddled which is challenging in this warm weather. She prefers to sleep on her side or back even though she could roll over if she wants to. She makes a lot of noise chattering, cooing and screeching. She has the sweetest little laugh when I nuzzle in her neck. She will interrupt nursing to look for her Daddy when she hears his voice.
She still spits up quite a bit but is growing and gaining weight just fine so it's mostly just a laundry issue. She is wearing mostly 6-9 month size clothing but her belly is beginning to hang out of some of the shirts.
The days and months are going by so quickly but I often find myself looking and my three little girls in awe. We waited so long to have little people at our feet again. They are such a miracle.
We are a Christian couple joyfully answering God's call on our life to welcome children into our home. We have two boys, Tyler and Tony, and adopted our first daughter, Amanda, in August of 2007 and a second daughter, Christiana, in July of 2009. Talitha joined our family in February 2010 after a surprise pregnancy. Julia was an even bigger surprise in January 2012.
