Well today my sweet Alice is 5 months old. I can hardly believe it. The time sure does fly!!! We have started her on some rice cereal, she is awfully funny about eating it. She tends to lean forward towards the spoon, and sometimes if I don't get it in her mouth fast enough, she starts to cry.
She still is not sleeping through the nite. I think she would get there if I could get her into her crib. She sleeps with us. When she was way small it was a lot easier on me. She hates to sleep on her back though. So I am going to try and have her nap on her tummy sometime this weekend to see what happens. I mean good lord, back in the day moms used to drink and smoke while pregnant, as well as laying their kids on the tummy to sleep, and most kids were just fine.
Alice laughs and laughs all the time. She loves when you blow raspberries on her tummy, and when Ayla licks her hand. I enjoy every minute that I can spend with my sweet goober. She is so silly, I can't imagine our live with out her.
I do miss Gunny everyday. I wish he could have been here to meet Alice. I can only imagine how he would be with her. Quite gentle of course, but probably not concerned with her, but more concerned about what Ayla is doing. As was his usual temperament. I miss him so much everyday.
Gunny, I know you are up in heaven having a great time, I can only hope that you are looking down on all of us, and watching over us. I miss you and love you!!!
