Hazel's 5 month check up

 Hazel had her 5 month check up yesterday and she is doing really well except for the fact that she got 3 shots.  Here are the stats:
Height: 25 1/2 inches  62nd percentile
Weight: 15lbs 10oz  61st percentile
Head:  41.5cm  37th percentile
She has mastered rolling over (she prefers back to front because she loves tummy time).  She has started pulling her knees up under her and she can do baby push ups but not both at the same time yet.  She is finally in her crib now that Oliver is in his big boy bed.  It took a few nights for her to get used to her new surroundings but she is doing fine now.  
She spends so much time on her tummy sometimes she just passes out from exhaustion! The pink fluffy thing under her face is Woobie 2.0  I took Oliver to the store where we bought his Woobie and he picked this one out for her.  How sweet is that!

Book club at the park

On Saturday the members of Read & Feed Book Club met at the park for our first annual outing.  We all brought our families and had a pot luck lunch.  It was nice to meet everyone's significant other.

 Tanner and Oliver having fun swinging.

New Adventures

Our house has had a lot of changes lately.  First of all, Oliver is now in a big boy bed.  While it is cute seeing him grow up and move on to bigger and better things, I don't appreciate my new wake up time and the alarm clock that he threw at my head.  "Time wake up Mommy!"  The second new and exciting thing that is happening in the Wheatley house is Potty training!  WooHoo!  I have taken on the naturalistic approach and just let he run around the house naked. The look on the mail mans face was priceless when he was greeted at the door by a naked Oliver.  On the up side he has not had any accidents in three days.  The down side, once he has a stitch of clothing on he forgets to use the potty. 

Hazel is now 5 months and weighs about 15lbs.  She is eating solids and has recently discovered her feet!  She loves tummy time.  I'm afraid she will be crawling in no time.

deja vu!

I just came across this picture of me and Matt holding Billie's two kids.  I remember thinking at the time "This is insanity!  I don't know how she does it!"  The picture kind of looks like a snap shot of my current situation... and I couldn't be happier.

Hazel is growing up!

 What could be cuter than this?  She is in love.
Oliver decided it was time for Hazel to start eating real people food.  What a good big brother!
