Ellie at 7 months

Ellie is starting to become a fun little baby. Her personality is beginning to show more and just be more fun. She is bit more expressive now, which is good and bad. She lets us know when she is happy, mad, sad, annoyed, needs more attention, etc…  When she knows it’s bed time and I’m getting ready to nurse her, if I set her down, she lets out the maddest cry ever. She just wants to nurse right now. She also shows that she’s mad if you take something away from her that she really wants. Ellie also has a happy scream. When she is playing with sister or is excited, she does a loud, piercing, happy scream.

On 11/30/16 She fully transitioned to the zipadee zip. That thing has been wonderful. And now she can’t sleep without it. She sleeps mostly on her tummy now that she is not swaddled and roll over easily.

She still shakes her head back and forth a lot. She is almost sitting up on her own. She is getting stronger and stronger.

One of my very favorite things is when she’s nursing, her hand wanders and she just feels my chest and my face and neck. I love it. I am so grateful that I have been able to nurse both my girls. I think it’s the most wonderful thing in the world (after you get over the initial nursing hump!)

She got to enjoy her first Christmas this month! In these pictures, she’s wearing the same sweater I wore as a baby <3

Ellie is our sweet, chill, yummy baby and we love her so very much.
