Aviva, my little love,
I can't believe 5 months has passed already. But at the same time, I can't remember what life was like without you.
You've come so far and grown so much already! Inching along on the floor, rolling all over, drooling on everything, getting as much as you can in your mouth! Your strength is amazing! Making sweet syllables and wild shrieks of joy! I remember two months ago when you started calling breastmilk "ning-ning" whenever you got hungry. I wonder if it is a synonym for mama. It's music to my ears!
You are huge! The 90th percentile for head circumference and 75th for weight and height. You are built like a model I can tell. You are so tall that it's hard for people to believe you are so young!
In a month or so when you start solids, I worry you may want mama's milk less. I hope that isn't so because I cherish the time I spend nursing you. You are the light of my life and you keep me on a path of constant happiness when I was once lacking it. We have each other always. I love you, Aviva. You are the most beautiful creation I've seen! I thank God for you every day.
