5 months old

At 5 months, Jericho is getting ever more curious about the world around her. She is fascinated by anything that is put in front of her. She loves to be talked to, and loves *talking* to us as well as her toys. Recently I've discovered she enjoy sitting in a walker/exerscaucer as well as sitting outside in the stroller just watching her brothers and sisters play.

She smiles easily, but seems particularly taken with Alex. The only time she doesn't seem too happy with him is when he kisses her good-night... she almost always cries. LOL It's rather comical. :)

She is very interested in her hands. Her hands, and anything she can get a hold of. My hair, my glasses, faces, noses... It's very sweet, and she is very gentle.

In other, completely unrelated news... I forgot to share a very interesting experience in my last post. The other night (just before dark) Tim and I were in the yard and he saw what he thought was a cat. We looked around, and I found a cat way out in the fields behind our house. Suddenly, something else crossed my line of vision. It was in the field directly behind our house. Nope... it was not a cat. Instead, it was a small fox. How cool is that?

Also, today I was outside cleaning up our exersaucer with the sprayer and I decided to have a little one-sided waterfight with the kids. They enjoyed cooling off from the spray, and also trying to get past me without getting wet. ;) We had a great time! Spontaneous fun is the best, isn't it? Just wish I would have thought to get some pictures of my little drown rats. LOL

I started this post before supper, and I'm just now getting around to finishing it at 12:50am. Off to bed I go! Hope you enjoy the pictures.

She looks like such a smiley happy girl. I love how inquisitive they become, needing to touch, taste, and talk to everything.

Smiley girl!

we must have been channeling each other as I, too, had a one sided waterfight with Andy :)

Maybe it's like Caleb said about Tirzah, "She's too little to run away from kisses." LOL Or maybe she just hates goodbyes. :)

She's beautiful, Kristen! She's grown so much so quickly!

Thanks for stopping by my blog....I certainly do understand how things can get crazy. I've cut way back on blogging because of the very same reason!

I hope you and your precious family are doing well!
