Ellie Abigail 7 months

I'm a few days late posting this.  Time slipped away from us!


Ellie Abigail,
Seven whole months have gone by and you are quite the little missy!  We love you so much!  You are such a big talker, a big smiler and you do know how to cry! You are getting to be such a little big girl.  You are so curious about what is going on around you.  We are convinced you will be much happier when you are mobile and can follow your sister around.  You are a blessing to us and we love having you around!


At 7 months you:
  • are wearing size 6-9 months clothes.
  • might wear a size 2 shoe but you haven't had many "real" shoes on this summer!
  • wear most of your cloth diapers on the large setting!

  • are eating 2 meals a day, breakfast and dinner.  Breakfast is usually a fruit or yogurt and cereal.  Dinner is cereal and a veggie.
  • have eaten lots of different foods including acorn squash, butternut squash, banana yogurt, pears, peas, sweet potato, black beans and peaches.  We can't wait to introduce you to more food. 
  • still love to babble a ton!  And you always have those little hands moving.
  • have really discovered the dogs and love it when they come close to you.  I caught you trying to eat Bella's tail today.  I don't think you thought it tasted too good.

  • are sitting up like a champ.  And your arms seem to have grown exponentially because you can really reach far!
  • have tried drinking with a sippy cup.  You need a little more practice.  You do love water from a straw from mommy or daddy.
  • are usually in bed by 7:30 PM and up at 6:30 AM.  We let you talk and play in your crib until around 7 AM.  Mommy would really like it if you slept in a little later!
  • sleep with your lovie and paci at night and naps.
  • Take at least 2 naps but usually 3 a day.
  • can push yourself backward when on your tummy and turn yourself around. Especially if there is something around you want.
  • went to your first swim party!  Your friend Chloe turned 4.  You really weren't so fond on the pool.  It's a little different than your bath!

  • have already gone to your first VBS at church! Everyone loved you. But with those dimples, it's hard to resist!
  • Got to meet a new friend Addison Leigh.  She lives in Texas but I think you will be great long distance friends!  She can teach you a lot!
  • have two of your bottom front teeth.  Nothing else seems to be on the horizon right now.
  • love playing  with your big sister.  She has such a great time entertaining you!
Big girl, there is so much to come!  We love you sweet girl!
And because we can't end the post without a picture of sisters here it is.  Have I even mentioned how hard it is to get a 7 month old and a 4 year old to smile at the same time? Especially when the 7 month old is over taking pictures. This is as good as it gets sometimes
