{monthdate} 7 months!!!

Somehow it's December and Christmas is in 4 days.... Luckily for us we get to celebrate seven months with our sweet Ellie Faith! And what a happy monthday we had!

Granted Ellie is less than a yearso everything is basically a first for her, but we are so excited to have this first Christmas season with her and continue our traditions, and make some new ones too!!

We celebrated you Monthday today with attending "Scrooge" a musical at a local church and then dinner at Red Robin afterwards!  What special day we had!

You celebrated your first Thanksgiving and got to join us at the table in your high chair.  It was so fun being able to give thanks for you this year!

You have two teeth and are SO close to crawling and walking! You love to eat your solid foods but sometimes get worried when you think it won't get followed up with a bottle!

You also got to go on your first "vacation"  with a hotel stay AND it was even out of the country in Canada!  You were a great traveler and a complete joy to be with!

Our Christmas traditions that you have been a part of so far: Ladies Christmas Tea, Present Shopping, Holiday Play/Musical, and Decorating the Tree and House for Christmas.

New Christmas Traditions: visit to Santa, visit to a U-cut Tree Farm, and to the local nursery to see Santa's Reindeer. 

Stats: No official stats due to no appointment. 
Height: guessing around 25"
Weight: somewhere in the 17 pound range
Head: larger than 16"
Food: eating about 6 ounces at each feeding for about 28-30 ounces a day. Solid foods!! Rice cereal, peas, broccoli, beans, yams, and butternut squash. 
Diapers: size three
Clothes: 3-6 month sizes are fitting super well and we have a TON in this size!!
Sleeping: pretty well through the night 7-10 hours. And then still has a few naps during the day. 
Cries: when hungry and sometimes when she is tired or unsettled or when her teeth are hurting.

Loves: baths, eating, diaper changes, her crib mobile, holding her blankets, clapping, spinning her foot, kitchen utensils, rolling over, sitting, standing with assistance and laughing. Santa Claus!!!

Hates: still not a big fan of getting her boogers out and being hungry.  She also doesn't like the taste of hand sanitizer on our fingers.

Mama's proudest moment:  having Ellie be part of our Christmas traditions!

Daddy's proudest moment: her excitement of shoulder rides!

Oops of the month:  taking the extra change of clothes out of the diaper bag, only to have a poopy diaper blowout at a restaurant. (Luckily the spare was in the car!)

Things we are looking forward to: Ellie's first Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and crawling. 

Dear sweet Ellie Faith we love you so and adore your little personality so much.  You are growing up to be a wonderful baby with a great temperament. We seriously couldn't ask for a better daughter!

Mama and Daddy

  1. I just came across your blog and read your story and I think you and your husband are amazing! Your daughter is precious! I admire that you and your husband did the 40 day challenge and prayed together. I will have to look into that for us in the new year. I look forward to following you!
