Life has been crazy with moving to Seattle, so I am a tad bit late on this blogging thing. Elizabeth is now over eight months old. She has really figured out this crawling thing and it is stinking adorable! She loves being able to follow us around the apartment. She also has figured out how to climb onto the edge of the tables/ furniture/ our legs. The only problem is sometimes she gets stuck up in the standing position and can't figure out how to get down. The last couple nights I have come into her bedroom and she is crying because she is standing up in her crib and can't get down! Speaking of her crib....She is still not a fan. She probably spends somewhere between 2-4 hours a night in her crib and the rest in our bed. Ever since we moved she does not want to be separated from us (mostly me) at all...as in being across the room is just way too far! Along with that she is starting to get a little more leery of strangers. Needless to say, Elizabeth is spending a LOT of time being held by me/ on my lap. It is getting a little ridiculous, I can't blame her with all the craziness of moving though. She is as happy and as funny as ever! She is always there to make you smile which I love!
Woops... I guess Elizabeth is almost seven months old and I never did her six month blog post. It is hard to remember exactly what new things she did at six months old, so I think I had better wait until the end of this week and give all the stats for her seventh month. She did go to the doctor the other week and endured her shots like a little trooper. She is 17 pounds and 25 inches long...aka a little short and chubby. She is a little mover and even though she can't crawl or walk yet, I am sure once she can she is going to work all that cute little chub off. She is so so stinking cute though. I can't get over her constantly happy personality! She is definitely a talker. A couple weeks ago she started saying "dada", but I guess she has forgotten how to say it since. I am pretty sure that once she learns to talk she is never going to stop. Well, here are the adorable little six months photos of my little munchkin.
Since Elizabeth is almost 5 months old, I figured I had better catch up on my blog about the past two months. She just continues to get even cuter (and even chubbier). Here are some random/fun facts in no particular order.
For a little while she started blowing bubbles and raspberries, and then randomly stopped, now after a couple months she apparently remembered it was fun and is going at it again.
She also has learned how to roll over from her back to her front. I thought she was going to master this weeks ago, but it took her a little while to get past her arm.
This weekend she became a true Seattle sports fan at her first Sounders game one day and Mariners game the next. She did great at both of them, but was definitely exhausted after a crazy weeked.
She has decided that she likes trying to snack/chew on whatever we are eating for dinner (not that she ever actually swallows anything). Her favorite is corn on the cob.
Just today she tried some rice cereal for the first time, she seemed to like it alright (although I must say that 99% ended up all over her)
She is loving baths! She will splash and laugh and has never fussed in there which is nice. She can't wait for swimming lessons next month!
She may or may not be getting her first tooth. You can kind of feel a little rough edge on her top gums...so we will see.
She is still about the happiest, smiliest, cutest, giggliest, slobberiest baby of all time.
I just adore her.
There are a lot of pictures.... But it's my blog, so I will post them if I feel like it. :)
This past Sunday was Easter, Elizabeth's first Easter to be exact. It was an absolutely beautiful day! The sun was shining, church was great, and we were able to spend time with our friends. Elizabeth was a little spoiled and even got her very own little Easter basket complete with bunny ears, a board book, a bunny puppy (which happens to be her new favorite toy), a teething toy (she still prefers to chew on the stuffed animals), and adorable little bunny finger puppets I made (pretty proud of them..haha). Little girl looked so adorable in her Easter dress (thanks mom!) and she went the entire day without blowing out of her diaper. Quite the accomplishment. To enjoy the sun we went over to the park for a little bit to relax after church, and then headed over to Steven and Stephanies house where they made a delicious ham dinner (I don't even like ham...but it was really yummy!). There are lots of pictures but she is cute and I couldn't narrow it down....sorry :)
Elizabeth is two months old today! Boy, time sure flies! I figure I should give an update of her likes/dislikes and such things...but she's just a baby, so I'm not sure she has too many of those yet. She really likes sitting upwards, she doesn't want to lay down unless she is eating or REALLY tired. She likes it when we sit her up so she can look around and see what's new. She has been talking and cooing a lot lately. It's really cute! We will talk to her and she talks right back like we are having a real conversation. Sometimes she apparently says really funny things because she will say her baby talk and then get a huge smile on her face and give a little laugh. She is having her two month appointment next week, I am not looking forward to shots! But I am excited to see how much she is growing (She is starting to grow out of a lot of her newborn clothes, 0-3 is still a little baggy...but they are cute). In other news, Justin made his final decision of where he will be going to grad school. This fall he is going to be attending the University of Washington! I am so excited! Can't wait to go back home!
And Justin had a "decision day" video chat... Go UW
