This and That with Kalea

This last month we have enjoyed watching as our little girl continues to grow and grow.  She is now 5 months, but before I get to that post I wanted to share what has happened recently.

We love reading to Kalea, and she loves to listen to all kinds of stories.  This book is one I bought from my cousin Natalie to help raise money for a local animal shelter near her in Massachusetts.  It is called "Toto the Tornado Kitten."  
We keep working with Kalea to help her get stronger and stronger. She is still struggling a bit with using her arms to hold herself up, but she is getting better.  
Since her 4 month appointment, we have been spending more time with her as she bounces and steps joyfully.  She really loves stepping on our bellies and stomping her feet at our cats.
Her hair is still pretty fair, but it is growing in super fast!  This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago and there is actually hair to be seen in the light!  Her hair is at least twice as long in some places now.  Pretty soon we will get to put more then just hair bands on her head.
Love her to pieces!
Caught a great smile finally
My two loves exhausted after a long day.  This is how most nights end up, in fact as I write this, they are in this exact same position next to me.
So I finally finished the tree in her room.  To see the before click here and you can see how it came about.  All I have to do is figure out which picture I want to put in the beehive and I will be all set.  

Kalea surrounded by her stuffed animals.  She isn't quite ready to sleep in her crib, or maybe that is me who is not ready for her to.  Either way she enjoys hanging out in there every once in a while when we need to get something done.  
And finally, our end of the night routine isn't complete without story time.  Here is Daddy and Kalea reading from Winnie-the-Pooh a few nights ago.
