about us...

I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

Baby Ellie You Are 8 Months Old

Baby Ellie, you are growing so fast!
You now weigh 19.5 pounds! Your sister only weighed a pound more when she had her first birthday! You wear mostly 12 month clothes, but some of them are a little snug.
You crawl and pull up and get into everything.
You love your sister's toys and opening drawers and chasing empty water bottles around on the hardwood floors. You are a very busy girl!You eat three meals a day and drink about 6 ounces of formula in a sippy cup over the course of the day. You like all food, but applesauce is still your least favorite and you do not like juice. You love Jumbo Rice Krispies (cut in half because Mommy worries that you'll choke) for your snacks.
One of my favorite times of the day is feeding you before bedtime in my bedroom. We cuddle up in the chair and you fall asleep after your belly is full. You are still waking up during the night, but I think we are finally doing a few things so that you don't think you have to eat every single time.
You still have only two teeth, but you act like you'll cut more anytime. You kept me and your Daddy up for a couple of hours last night just screaming and gnawing on your fingers. You love to have your teeth brushed and you open wide when you know it's time!
You like to crawl away while I'm trying to change your diaper and you have trouble going to sleep for naps because you want to stand up in your bed. You are so active.
You say "da-da" a lot and also say "b" when you see babies or books.
Your hair is still a light brown and it still sticks up in the back no matter what I do to it.
You love taking a bath with your sister and you get so excited when the bath tub is filling up. You like to splash and squeal and kick your legs.
You like to shop and eat out at restaurants and you love to people-watch.
You have stayed in the nursery at our new Church for several months now and we've yet to be paged! Daddy and I love to see you playing with the other babies when we pick you up. We are so happy that you enjoy going to Church, just like your sister does.
You cry when I tell you "no-no" or if we take something that you're not supposed to have away from you. You sound so heartbroken.

Baby Ellie, you are such a delight and we couldn't imagine our lives without you.

What a sweet post! Yikes, Gooner is a little older but she eats a middle meal between waking up and lunch and supper. Her middle meal is the breast. eep, is this ok? We all do what is best for our babies, but sometimes I wonder if I am doing the right thing!!!?
