7 Months Old

Well, today our baby turned 7 months old - time is passing by so fast! I write this with such joy that she is alive and safe after the past week (will post on that topic later, once it's all settled). Ellie is a fantastic baby and we just love to show her off to our friends and family. So here is an updated list of things about her:
  1. Her two teeth are much more noticeable and are sharp when she bites down!
  2. She is 17lbs now, about to be upgraded to size 3 diapers once we finish up her size 2's.
  3. She can get on all fours and rock back and forth (yep, about to crawl) but she can definitely roll and scooch forward to get wherever she wants.
  4. She still loves to jump on people's lap and in her jumper.
  5. She is still a GREAT sleeper at night and during her naps in the morning and afternoon.
  6. She's become a travel trooper and takes great naps on our trips to Knoxville.
  7. She eats 2 ice cubes of fruit and 2 ice cubes of vegetables every day.
  8. She has started to learn to drink out of the sippy cup.
  9. She recently has started making the "da da da da" sound so I think I'm out of luck on getting her to say "ma ma" first.
  10. She giggles out loud a lot more and can amuse herself with toys and books.
  11. She has graduated to the sitting position in her tub, but she's not yet able to sit completely on her own - still working on that one. She likes to stand more than sit.
  12. We have lowered her crib so my nightmares of her falling out are relieved.
  13. She is about to graduate from her 3-6 month clothing into her 6 month clothes!
  14. She likes to smile at men - a lot quicker than smiling at women other than from her family. Not sure what to think of that!

God has blessed us and we are so thankful to have Ellie in our lives. Jesse can't wait to heal so he can get back to being more involved with her (I can't either!). She still loves to smile at her daddy and loves to be held by her mommy. The past week I have held her more than usual just because I can. We love our baby girl and can't wait to see what this next month holds! :)
