#19 Word ladder

Today's puzzle is a constricted word ladder. Change one letter at a time; each intermediate word (rung) must be a common word itself. I found two slightly different solutions to this puzzle; either will win.

From HELLO to BAITS (5 rungs)

I Was Just Thinking (2 points for solving it with four rungs!)
