(Not So) Wordless Wednesday

Ellie met her Michigan boyfriend today. I think I need to explain to her about playing hard to get. Ha!

She's not a very exciting girl to go on a date with.

Five Month iPhone pics

I'm so late in posting pics from our 5 month photoshoot and an update. Right now I'm just going to post a couple of my favorites that I took with my iPhone and an update. Regular pics will be posted when I return to Texas.

We continue to fall more in love with Ellie each day. She is truly the sweetest baby ever!! She's happy all the time. She still only cries if she's hungry or overly tired. We try to avoid that last one. Ha!

Ellie is still taking 7 ounces at a time and we've also added rice cereal and stage 1 veggies. This girl loves to eat!!

She continues to wow us with her rolling and scooting. She has also started pushing up on her knees. Now if she could just figure out her arms. She loves to play on the floor.

She goes to bed between 8-8:30 and gets up between 6-7:30. We are blessed with a great sleeper. She takes about an hour nap in the morning, three hours in the afternoon and 45 min in the evening.

Ellie still loves her playmat and also the bumbo seat. She also loves to sit with me in the rocker while I read books or a bible story. She is rarely without a smile. She will smile and "talk" to just about anyone. She will let any of our friends hold her. No sign of stranger fear yet either. Our pool has also been a big hit! We hoped she'd love the pool since she loves her bath so much!

Ellie can still wear lots of her 3 month sized clothes. Her sleepers are 6 month size because of the length.

At our 5 month visit Ellie weighed 12 lbs 9 oz and was 24.5" long. She has some chunky thighs, but that's about the only chunky part of her body.

Ellie laughs like crazy at us and when we tickle her. It is the sweetest sound ever! We could not love her more if we tried! She has made our lives better than we ever imagined. We are feel blessed beyond belief.

I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but if I am I'll add it soon.

Cousin Love

Ellie and I are visiting my family in Michigan right now and having a wonderful time. My nephew LOVES Ellie!! He tells us all the time that he "needs" Ellie. It's adorable! He is so sweet with her. Here's a picture of the first time he held her.

Sure does melt my heart! I love these two sweeties and love that he loves her so much!

Boo to Shots

Ellie had her 4 month well visit today. We are just a couple weeks late. She is still technically 4 months old...and some. She weighed 12 lbs 9oz and was 25" long. She's in the 25th percentile for weight.
Our pediatrician was impressed with her gross motor skills. She is rolling back and forth and all over the floor. She's also been getting up on her knees and scooting around. She just can't figure out how to get those arms going.

This is what a girl who gets three shots looks like.

Poor baby! She cried and slept all afternoon. She went down at 7:00 again tonight. That's two nights in a row. This morning she slept until 6:30. Hoping for another night like that.

Also...can someone tell me how to post to blogger from my iphone?  I registered my phone, but I can't get pictures to post.  I can't get a subject either.  What am I doing wrong?  Help a girl out, please!
