Ellie 8 Months

 Our sweet Ellie girl is 8 months old already!  Suddenly, I feel like she's really close to a year!

Daddy's little princess:

Ellie has evened out her nursing, that's going a lot better than a month or two ago.  She loves all the people around her, so she still easily allows other people to hold her and loves to bestow a big, sweet smile on anyone who may look at her!

 No major changes from last month to report...still the same schedule, same number of teeth, and same "almost ready to crawl" actions!  She likes to rock, now, in her highchair (which we are discouraging because we don't want her to tip over!), and when she's sitting on the floor!  She still LOVES to jump!

 I wonder if she understands more than I give her credit for.  I just remembered that at this point with Elijah, we'd probably already been asking him to wave bye-bye and point out body parts...we'll have to start working on those things with Ellie!  I see how second children can just watch things and store up all kinds of skills that no one realize they have!  :)

  1. Your comment "no major changes to report from last month" stood out to me. The days may seem ordinary, but they are, oh, so extraordinary! Each day builds another layer of security and confidence and love and peace and joy. When she is all grown up you will wonder "when/how did this happen?" It was during through all those ordinary/extraordinary days!
