Chloe’s Fifth Month

Chloe had a big fifth month because two of her teeth came in!  Her bottom central incisors popped out four days apart from each other.  Her first teething experience didn’t seem so bad (at least Chloe didn’t cry or fuss too much).  As the teeth came in, she actually seemed in pretty good spirits.  Chloe also started splashing in the bath; a sign she is starting to enjoy it.  She started buzzing her lips together.  Sometimes she would do this just for fun, but it seem that most of the time she did it when she was frustrated or upset.  Man, it’s so cute when she does that when she’s upset, we can’t help but laugh.

These are pictures of Chloe on her 4 month birthday.  (07/22/2010)

Chloe is happy to be hanging out with Daddy.  (08/08/2010)

Here is Chloe laughing at Grandpa’s funny faces.  It’s so cute when she does that high pitched squeak when she laughs.  (08/08/2010)

Drinking milk is such hard work.  Poor Chloe!  (08/09/2010)

Chloe is having lots of fun playing in her Jumperoo. Boy was this toy a good investment! Here she is starting to bounce on her own.  (08/09/2010)

Mommy gave her a carrot to chew on.  It seemed to be a great teething toy.  (08/10/2010)

Here is Chloe after her first tooth popped through.  She’s definitely still in good spirits so that is cool!  (08/10/2010)

Chloe began to drool quite a bit and liked chewing toys to comfort herself as teething started.  (08/11/2010)

Another video of Chloe playing in her Jumperoo.  This time she is actually spinning the little spinner toy by herself.  (08/12/2010)

Here is Chloe really contorting her body attempting to crawl.  She was able to reach out and grab her toy, but not crawling quite yet.  It’s cute how she balances on her stomach and flails her arms and legs.  (08/13/2010)

She is making faces.  Almost looks like she ate a lemon.  (08/15/2010)

Chloe is thoroughly entertained by Grandpa Nelsen.  (08/15/2010)

Mom did an outdoor photo shoot in our front yard.  It was a nice, warm summer day.  As you can see, Chloe found her feet for the first time.  (08/16/2010)

Chloe is being a real chatter bug in her swing.  She’s having fun just relaxing and taking it all in.  (08/16/2010)

Here is a really cute video of Chloe buzzing her lips and making bubbles.  So precious.  (08/17/2010)

Our friend, Libby, met Chloe for the first time and they had a good time together.  (08/21/2010)

Ozaukee County and Wisconsin State Fairs

We decided to check out the Ozaukee County Fair in Cedarburg.  It was a pretty small and simple fair, but just perfect for us.  We took Chloe to see all of the farm animals and she seemed to like them for the most part.  We also indulged in some good fair food like corn dogs and cheese curds.

Here is Chloe and Mommy at the sheep pens.  (07/28/2010)

All of the sheep started “baaing” at the same time and freaked Chloe out pretty good.  I think she was a little overwhelmed.  (07/28/2010)

Chloe seemed to enjoy the rabbit area.  Since Mommy grew up with rabbits, we thought it was only appropriate to get a picture by some.  (07/28/2010)

Here is Chloe and Daddy with all the fair goodness in the background.  (07/28/2010)

Our friend, Lisa, and her daughter came over to visit and we all went to the Wisconsin State Fair.  Again, we looked at a bunch of animals and had a really good time.

Chloe and Daddy after walking through the cow exhibit.  (08/05/2010)

We stopped to take a break and to eat some snacks and decided it was a good time for a photo op.  (08/05/2010)
