Baby Ellie at 7 months

How can you be 7 months old Baby Ellie? It seems like only yesterday you were a helpless little bundle of baby lying so still and quiet in our arms. Today you are constantly moving or wiggling and trying to move somewhere. You are trying to figure out how to crawl and you scoot the slightest little bit on your bottom.

  • When you wear disposable diapers you are in a size 3, but you are still cloth-diapered most of the time.
  • You wear mostly 12 month clothes now, but you'll be in 18 month soon. You are so much chunkier than your sister was.
  • You no longer like to take a bath. I put you in the tub one evening and you started crying when you used to laugh, smile and splash.
  • You love your sister and you watch every move that she makes. You look at Maggie like she is the most interesting thing when she's playing with ponies or B.arbies.
  • You and Maggie love to squeal really loud and then you laugh at yourselves.
  • You are still waking up two times during the night to eat. I would love to sleep through the night, but it's sort of sweet that you need me.
  • You love your hands and feet. You look at them as if they are a new discovery every time you see them.
  • You get so excited when your Daddy comes home from work. You pant like a puppy and kick your legs until he acknowledges you or picks you up.
  • You still cry 90% of the time when I walk out of the room.
  • You seem to enjoy the nursery at church, but always cry when they change your diaper.
  • You like to be carried in the sling most of the time, but you also enjoy the stroller or riding in the shopping cart when we go out.
  • You enjoy going out to eat and people-watching.
  • You still like all of your baby foods, but applesauce is your least favorite. I think your favorite is green peas, green beans and sweet potatoes.
  • You like to watch me sweep and mop. You also thought it was very interesting when I used the drill to put up a curtain rod.
You are still the sweetest thing and you make us smile and laugh every single day.
We love you, Ellie Grace.
