5 months

{Aiyana was 5 months in October 2011. Today is May 2012. Pitiful, I tell ya. This blog post was in "drafts" unfinished, never posted... till now.}

October was filled with lots and lots of firsts! Our fun bucket over flowed this month. Having this child in our life is such an absolute joy...

Some things I don't want to forget about Aiyana's 5th month...

- First pony tail (10/8/11): So of course her hair was super long when she was born, but, boy, has it grown! We were very fortunate never to hit that hair loss or bald spot period... Her hair has continued to stay strong and continued to grow and grow. Her hair doesn't relax well after air drying, so I got a little fed up and pulled it up... viola... and our first pony tail!

- First pig tails (10/22/11):  After a couple weeks of pony tails, we need a little variety, so we tried pig tails on a gameday and these came out perfectly!

- First visit to the pumpkin patch.

- First Halloween
Aiyana was a Bumble Bee, and Mommy had tons of fun piecing her costume together. I knew we wouldn't be trick or treating, so we needed something simple and comfortable. It was "made" out of a simple yellow onesie w/ a Mommy-made felt stinger velcroed to the bootie... black and yellow striped baby legs... and a crocheted hat w/ built in stingers! The entire costume cost me no more than $25!

We attended our first Halloween Party, and she won the costume contest! :P

- This month she also started making this "squish"/gargaling sound and shrieking at a high pitch! She also started reaching her arms out for me. <3
