5 months!

Today Gemma officially turned 5 months! :)

She continues to surprise us everyday with how much she is blossoming and becoming her own little person. She laughs a lot now, like real hearty laughs, bats unwanted things away with her hand, has learned how to put the pacifier in her mouth when we hand it to her (this was really incredible the first time we saw it), plays with her feet constantly, continues her drooling ways and vocalizes like crazy.Gemma is learning how to sit up, though she's still can't do it by herself. Her tummy time has become more comfortable for her and when she tries to crawl she grunts a lot - we call her little Monica Seles. She loves to see the world upside down and exercise her leg muscles by pretending to walk like in the picture above. Everyday is a new adventure. :)

Super Tuesday

Gemma and I took a short walk across the street to do our civic duty and voted. However you may have been leaning, I hope you were able to get the vote out!

Music Class

Gemma and I are taking an music class for infants at Mo Music.

It is super fun for both of us. We sing songs and dance around and she giggles and loves to look at the other babies and parents. She even gets to play instruments - here she is in her very first class and her very first time playing maracas:

In her 2nd class she played a lot with the tambourine:
I hope that she continues to enjoy the music and movement and that she becomes musically inclined. :)
