A Vampire Without Her Fangs

This post is for all my Twilight friends.  I am clearly comparing my child's teething issues to fictional tween novels.  But I don't care!  You have been warned!

My poor Rhea!  She is still teething and the teeth are no where to be seen!  She is like a vampire without fangs!   I would be afraid to be alone in a dark ally with her right now as she is gnawing and sucking on anything she can get her chubby little hands on!  I have seen her make a meal of Sofie the Giraffe!  Poor Sofie didn't stand a chance!  I was hoping the teeth would pop through this past week but still nothing.  I have been trying to teach her to be on Team Edward and fight the urge to drain anything or anyone but she has informed me she is Team Volturi meaning she will drain you.  You have been warned!!!  She is looking for her next victim!

Girl Fight

I have no idea where she learned to do it but Rhea is a hair puller.  There are clumps of my hair all over the house.  I will probably be bald by the end of the week.  She grabs hold and will not let go.  And I have no idea how a 5 month old baby is that strong!  I basically have to wrestle her to let it go.  And all the while she is laughing and tugging my hair.  It is insane.  I feel like I am in a girl fight every day of my life.  I see those tiny hands grabbing for me and I fear for my safety.  But I keep going back for more.  I cannot help it.  She is too cute

5 Months

Honestly the last five months have gone by so fast!  I know it is what everyone says but it is true.  Rhea is 5 months old now!  5 months!  She is getting so big and we are discovering all these personality traits about her.  I am in love and it pains me to think she is growing up so fast.  I just want to freeze this time in a bottle.  Capture this feeling and keep it with me.   We have nicknamed my Dad Paparazzi as he is Rhea's Papa and he acts as if she is a celebrity every time he sees her snapping hundreds of pictures at a time.  And as much as we poke fun at Paparazzi, I am so glad he has captured all these moments for me.
