Everyone who hears these words of Mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. Matthew 7:24-25

Tacy Mae – 5 Months

Another month has come and gone.  Time to share pictures from Tacy Mae’s latest photo shoot.

To say that Tacy Mae is a good baby would be an understatement.  I mean it.  She is good!  She only fusses if she’s in discomfort, whether that be from pain or hunger – usually hunger.  She’s terrific during church.  And when it comes to sleep habits, Tacy’s a dream.  (Pun intended.)  When it’s nap time I lay her down in her crib and she goes to sleep.  Yes, that simple.  And every night she sleeps at least 10 hours, usually from 10 pm until 8 am.  Thank you, Lord!

It’s getting a bit trickier to take Tacy’s picture each month.  She’s about to outgrow the blanket I’ve been using to lay her on.

Come to think of it, it’s getting trickier to do a lot of things with Tacy, thanks to her ever-improving ability to reach and grab.  She tries to get her hands (and mouth) on anything that’s in front of her… a hot cup of coffee, a napkin, an iPhone, a computer mouse, a bite of chicken (more on the chicken later).  I took advantage of this and introduced her to baby rice cakes a couple of weeks ago.  She’s seems to like them and is doing quite well gnawing the cakes and making a general mess of things.

Rat on the run!  Coco had to come check things out.

Tacy has just started noticing our little chihuahua.  She’s gotten a handful of Coco’s fur and one of her ears a time or two.  Thankfully Coco doesn’t seem to mind Tacy’s loving.  She actually seems to like snuggling with the baby.

One new discovery Tacy made this month was her feet.  She’s even managed to get a toe in her mouth a couple of times, although she hasn’t quite mastered that trick.  Socks don’t stand a chance on Tacy’s feet.  She pulls them off almost as soon as you can get them on her.

As far as Tacy’s hair goes, it’s finally beginning to lie down better this month.  Don’t get me wrong.  It still prefers to stand straight up, but at least it can be tamed with a brush and some baby lotion now.

If you want to make Tacy mad, all you gotta do is lay her down on her tummy.  Tacy does not like tummy time!  Hey, if your belly was as big as her’s you probably wouldn’t like it either.  But she’s got to do it.  How else is she going to learn to crawl around and get into everything?

When she’s older Tacy will probably hate me for this next picture, but I gotta show it to y’all anyway.  Have you ever seen so much adipose tissue in all your life?  Her rolls have rolls!  I love every squishy inch of it.

Last but not least, it’s time for a picture with big sis.  Lucy insisted on wearing white too this month.

Oh, Lucy.  You will be the one who sends me to the loony bin.  This girl is a hoot!  The things that come outta her mouth… I could write a book.  And “high maintenance” doesn’t even begin to describe her.

Tacy’s so lucky.  No one has a sister who loves her more!
