5 months

by Dana on August 3, 2012

I am so in love with this little girl.
Did I win the lottery?
She is the best baby ever. For sure a gold medal.
So far at least (we’ll talk in a few months when she’s mobile).
Clara is just a happy girl!
She puts up with the not-so-gentle hugs.
She doesn’t mind being dragged around from place to place.
And left to fend for herself at times.

Mostly she just chills and smiles when you look at her and slobbers on everything her chubby little fingers can hold.
…and she makes the best faces (photo via Instagram. If you need a baby fix, there’s usually a daily pic of her in my feed. @danamadeit)
The biggest change this month is the hair color. It’s still strawberry but more blonde is showing through. And in the right light looks golden.
Here’s the 5 month comparison:
6 months is coming up in just a week. Yikes. Our summer trip put me behind.
So….more baby pics coming soon.
Have a great weekend!

Oh, Dana, you did win the lottery! What a cutie!! My little man (11 months) is such a dream baby too……I think it’s the 3rd child thing. They have no choice but to be good or they would put us over the edge. Can you even imagine your 3rd being fussy and colicky? Nope. Don’t even want to think about it. Thanks for sharing her with everyone…….such a beauty :)

Good lordie, those chunky thighs and cheeks kill me! My little girl Bradli has the same rolls on the top of her thighs. They absolutely crack me up! I wish I would’ve done a cute little monthly montage like yours. It’s crazy to see how they change so much each month.

Not that you need another person telling you how adorable she is, but really she is! I love her hair right now too!

Oh and I also laughed a lot at your added captions! “Really? just gonna leave me here?” haha!!

She’s soooo adorable! I love that you do month pictures of her, it’s really cool to see how much she’s changed, because you don’t realize how much kids actually do change as they get older. That picture of the kids hugging her is my favorite ;)

You have such lovely children, cute toeheads (blondes) your littlest one reminds me so much of my youngest sister when she was small, such happy smiles from all.
Makes me smile!!!

I love Clara posts! She does make some of the best faces. Your word bubbles are hilarious and match perfectly with her expressions. I can’t believe our babies are growing so fast! Seriously. I wish I could just freeze ray them for a month or two. :)

Aww too cute! Spitting image of your kids!!

Oh my gosh! She’s adorable and with SO much hair too. She must’ve been born very close to the same date as my granddaughter (who has VERY little hair to date sadly) because she will be having her 6 month birthday in about a week also.

But that hair is so cute. I swear, I couldn’t put a bow in my granddaughters hair without resorting to super glue. LOL Maybe if I used about three strands of embroidery floss? HA

That is just ONE ADOREABLE little munchkin you have there. Actually, all your little munchkins are adorable! :) You are blessed :)

She is absolutely precious. And so photogenic. I just won’t to reach through the monitor and squeeze those cute little cheeks. She looks so happy. And the pictures of her bring smiles to my face. Gold medal for sure.

What a beautiful baby! Seriously, that hair and those chubby cheeks.

My kiddos have left babydom far behind. I always loved me some kissable, chubby baby cheeks.

I can see why you’re in love. All your kiddos are cuties.

Sweet Clara! My baby #3 is a gem as well — Cooper just turned 1 and is always happy as a little songbird. Yay for babies :)
