{weekly update} week 49

Stop it! I can't take it that my baby girl is 49 weeks!! Didn't we just bring her home from the hospital?!

I knew that she was going to be a lot of fun when she started gaining her independence by crawling, self feeding, and being able to play with her toys but I had no idea how much fun she was going to be!

pants: Ruffle Butts; headband: c/o Sweet T

Her little personality keeps shining through more and more each day and my heart grows bigger each day. I just love this little girl!

Eats: she still loves her bottles but is loving her big girl food-especially self feeding. She tried some meat this week and I think she liked it!  She is quite the adventurous eater and seems to like everything!

Sleeps: naps are still hit and kiss at this point (I think it's the teeth cutting through) and she is making it until about 2:30 or 3:00 am in her crib before we bring her into our bed.  Friday night we didn't have a paci for her (got left in Miss J's car) so that was a rough night. She isn't a huge paci girl but it does help her sleep. 

Goes: we went back up north to Snohomish to pick up the mirror I found for our bathroom makeover and stopped at Flower World to pick a few things up for our gardens. Aside from Flower World we didn't venture anywhere new. She did come visit me at work on my lunch break a couple of times and that makes me so happy!! We also spent time at Nanny and Papa's (mil and fil) and got to ride in the Jeep with her big cousin!! So fun and of course she wanted to go fast and then undid her seatbelt and stood up while they were moving!!!

Loves: her toys, blankets, walker, crawling around, the dogs, and chewing on things!  We put her Exersaucer into it's 3rd stage and now she is playing and discovering it in an all new way!! She is also really into her books now! Also she likes to "twin" with her daddy!

Does: two more teeth cut through this week. So now she has a total of four! (Three on the bottom and one on top). And I see the other top tooth and bottom tooth trying to cut through so we might be at 6 teeth very soon!! She signs "more", waves, and shakes her head "no" when she is done with her food!  I love how she can communicate with us this way. I think it is helping keep her frustrations at a minimum!

Mama: let's put this week in as one of the best yet!!! I just love this little girl!  I am having such a blast with her and being her mama! I love how she is keeping me on my toes with all of her movement. Summer is near and I am so looking forwar to spending about 10 weeks at home with her!!!!

Sweet Ellie Faith I love you so! You are a sweet, kind hearted, smart little girl and I am so looking forward to many more memories with you!!
