5 months old

Whitney turned 5 months old a week & a half ago. Each month I take her picture (and did the same with Anne) next to this big stuffed "doggy bear" as we call it. I will post a couple of the pictures from our photo session... Whitney is finally gaining weight and really growing. We went yesterday to the pediatrician for her Synagis shot & they weighed her - she is now 11 lbs 14 oz. She gained 10 oz. since Jan. 6th (and most of this weight gain came by her bottle, all on her own!)
We also moved Whitney into her own crib the night she turned 5 months old. She had been sleeping in a bassinette next to our bed that Anne slept in, my brother, sisters & I slept in, and my Mom, aunts and uncles all slept in. I am sure it does not meet any of today's safety standards but we felt it was safe, in great condition and very meaningful that so many people in our family had slept there when they were tiny babies :)
I have to go pick up Anne from school. She goes to a 2 year old program one day a week and has so much fun. The time flies by while she is there! I always have this idea in my head that I will get so much accomplished while she is at school, but once again - I have no idea where the time has gone and not much beyond feeding & playing with Whitney + eating lunch has actually been accomplished. We have speech therapy this afternoon, but hopefully before and after therapy I can get some things done!

A few more pictures... I do not think Whitney will be fitting in Anne's doll stroller for too much longer, so here are a few pics of them with Whitney in the "doll" stroller :)
