seven months

My Elle belle is a sweet seven months today. I am loving her curious eyes, dimpled hands and crooked smile. She is consistently sleeping from 6:30-4 these days which has me smiling from ear to ear. I happen to love the early morning feeding because it is the only time in the entire day that I get to be just with her. I hold her growing hand with one hand and rub her fuzzy-wuzzy head with the other one until she falls back asleep.

Elle has been sitting for a few weeks now and will usually sit for thirty minutes at a time before wanting be held. She still will not let me leave her side, but at least I'm not holding her. My back needs a break from time to time. She loves blowing bubbles while she sits. She would do it forever if she wasn't constantly interrupted by her sisters.

She is also eating her veggies like a champ. I believe sweet potatoes are her favorite...follows suit really since her sisters also loved the orangey substance.

I honestly can't believe this little angel face is five months shy of her year birthday. This has been the fastest and longest year of my life. The days are seriously dragging but then suddenly a month has passed and I can't even remember what I did to fill the days. It's nuts. She should be crawling within the next month. I'm excited for that. I think she wants to move. She is going to be just like her sisters. And I wouldn't have it any other way.


  1. What a little beauty! Is she the only one with your eye color? I wish I could just squeeze her!
