Ellie: 7 Months

The days and months are starting to move so fast now! I am to the point where I really do want it to slow down a bit. Those first months feel like years but now I blink and a week has passed and Ellie is growing and changing right along with it. So here we are at 7 months (really 7.5 now) and she is getting so big and has become so much fun! 

2015-10-06 13.32.30

around 19lbs (total guess)
Wearing size 3 diapers during the day and size 4 at night
Wearing 6-9 mo clothes and some 9-12 mo

Eating - she has really started getting the eating thing down and is enjoying it
Attemping to crawl - this past month she is rocking back on all fours and is really trying hard to figure out how to move.
Swinging - she will smile and giggle anytime you put her in the swing. She also loves being outside.
Anybody who will smile at her - she is seriously the easiest baby to make smile. You just have to give her a little grin and her face just explodes into a smile.

Not being able to crawl (trying so so hard)
Not getting her naps
Being held when she wants to move

Rocking on all fours
Rolling all over the place
Swinging on the park swing
Eating and drinking water
Trip to the State Fair
First trip to the pumpkin patch
Got Baptized!

Naps are hit or miss...we have had too many 1 nap days lately. Sleep at night is the same, she still wakes up 1x per night. We are planning to "cry it out" this month sometime which is the same time we did with Molly.

Ellie Baby! You are such a joy to be around and your happy energy rubs off on everybody around you. Your smile lights up the room and I cherish the evenings when I get to snuggle you to sleep. You are the perfect addition to our family and we love you so much!
