Hannah, Josh, and I went to the see Hannah's doctor today. She did not get her morning nap before we went and just hoped she wouldn't be that fussy. Hannah did fine. In the waiting room Hannah was looking around at the other children who were playing with toys. When we got called back to the room and put Hannah on the table with the paper all Hannah wanted to do was eat it! I let her but then Josh took it away. (party pooper!) =) She was not scared of the nurse or Dr. Abrams. (last time she got scared of the man doctor and cried the whol time) She weighs 15 pounds 14 ounces. It was a little less than I was expecting. I thought she would have made it over the 16 pound mark, she is pretty close. A "normal" baby doubles their birth weight by 6 months. Hannah was born at 8lb 1oz which would put her at 16lb 2oz but the doctor was not concerned at all. She said since Hannah is sleeping so good through the night that there was no need to worry about her getting enough food. Hannah is 25 inches long. She is in the 50 percentile for weight and 25-50 percentile for height (Josh said Hannah is going to be short like me, but I'm not short!). The doctor did notice Hannah's droopy eyelid and said the same as last time, "We'll keep an eye on it." Hannah received 2 shots and oral drops. She did pretty well and calmed down in Josh's arms afterwards. Other than that she is doing great! The doctor said to start feeding her baby food 2 times a day and see how she goes. She said we could give her regular applesauce and mashed up people food with a little rice cereal as she gets a little older. Overall we got a good report and we are so thankful that our little girl is growing healthy!

Well the news today is that Hannah is sitting! Hannah sits on the couch with me for 30 minute time frames and then she will sit on the floor for about 2-3 minutes by herself. Her problem is that she gets too excited and throws her weight back and falls backward. I have to be there to catch her just in case. Pretty soon she will be sitting for much longer periods of time without close Mommy supervision. =)

Hannah is now 5 months old! She is rolling all the time now and really trying to talk! She chews on her tongue like it is a piece of gum and makes cute noises. A couple of times I have thought I heard her say a word... I am still hoping that first word is "ma-ma". Josh and I both say, "ma-ma" to Hannah and she always smiles really big. We love our sweet girl and she is a constant reminder of God's goodness in our lives.
