Oh, tooth fairy!

My baby lost his first tooth school...without me. He was apparently eating his pb&j sandwich and noticed it was loose. His friend, Ella, tried to pull it for him. When that didn't work, he said he bit down and it just fell out.

When I went to pick him up today, he walked out so excited. I, on the other hand, almost cried when he told me.

When did he get so big?

a different topic.

for the past five months, this blog has been consumed by mya. not a bad thing in any way, but i do have two other kids and a husband. the boys are really hard to catch in pictures these days. they're so over, "smile for momma!" they're too cool for that. :) and pictures of myself or my husband are a rarity anyway. i'll try to change that.

for now, this post is totally about my husband.

i have to brag.

on friday, he had his annual review at the firm. he's been on the fast track since he started there, and this year was no exception.

he was promoted to principal!

in accounting talk, that means that his next title will be PARTNER!

we have a date in mind as to when that will be, but nothing is set in stone. lets just say he'll be one of the youngest partners there...ever.

i'm SO proud of him. like beyond. he works incredibly hard, and it has definitely paid off.

congratulations, hun! i couldn't be happier to call myself your wife.

i love you!

This is the look we get when...

We sing our mya song.

"Little miss mya...sat on a papaya.
Then she squished it...squished it like a biscuit."

Five months.

 this time she's smiling at jacob. she adores him.

here are her five-month stats:
  • 14 pounds 8 ounces
  • 25 inches long
  • blonde hair
  • blue eyes
  • no teeth as of yet. a little surprised, but we'll keep an eye out.
  • still loves her bedtime routine.
  • officially a tummy sleeper.
  • rolls over back to front. REFUSES to roll back the other way.
  • nowhere close to sitting up. she seems so big, yet so fragile.
  • on a good day, we get in a 2-hour morning nap and one or two shorter afternoon naps.
  • we have an eater. proof later in the post.
  • already starting separation anxiety. mom's day out should be interesting next week.
  • pretty much has all of us wrapped around her finger...especially daddy.
  • totally melts me with her looks. see exhibit A below.

jacob adores her also. (the other boy was asleep during this time.) 

another one of those looks. 

and another. 

i CANNOT get enough of these legs...and this pose showing them off.

now for the messy part. definitely not the neatest eater. 

 happy five months, baby girl. love, momma.
