Lessons From My 5 Month Old

Last week, Morley turned 5 months old. It's crazy how fast time flies around here.

Life with a 5 month old is exciting. She is constantly learning new things, copying what we're doing and developing a little, somewhat sassy, personality of her own. Yet, at the same time, it is exhausting. Nothing is safe. And I mean, nothing. Rolling to get from point A to point B, hands flying everywhere and everything in the mouth. Exhausting.

In the few short months since baby girl entered the world she has taught us so much. These are her lessons.

Side note. Before we continue, can we just stop and stare at that picture for a minute? I know I might be slightly biased, but is that not the cutest?! Of the 20+ photos I took that day, this was the only one where some part of her body was not moving. I tell ya, this girl cannot sit still. We're in trouble. 

Anyways, back to it.

Never did I ever think that a 5 month old could/would/should...

Lunge like a predator when she's hungry.

Eat so much.

Fart so loud.

Love the water so much she cries when she gets out.

Have a cell phone addiction.

Talk your ear off.

Cry with her eyes closed.

Have so. much. stuff.

Be so interested in watching baseball and hockey, but have zero interest in cartoons.

Have serious FOMO (a.k.a. fear of missing out).

Have more clothes than mom and dad combined.

Replicate "the [unimpressed] look" her dad is so well known for.

Get SO excited when she sees her dad that her whole body shakes.

Sleep in weirder positions than her mom.

Be the perfect combination of her mom and dad.

Ok, that picture may be the cutest too. Talk about cuteness overload in one post.

Melt my heart.
