5 months old!

Stella is 5 months old! She is continuing to try new solid foods like papaya, carrot, pear, and Sophie, her toy rubber giraffe. She puts all things into her mouth now, including her toes! She can sit up for a few seconds on her own, can take her own weight when you hold her standing up (although balance is a completely separate issue) and wants to crawl so badly. She does all of the right motions for crawling but her arms aren't yet strong enough to hold up all of her weight. She is much more aware of things she wants, like a different toy if she is bored, or a different position if she is uncomfortable (or bored), and tries to let us know with loud, high pitched squeals. Below are a few new videos and some pictures.
