Elliotte 6 months!

I knew this day was coming, but my baby is 6 months old! Time has flown by. She is getting more personality every day and is such a blessing.

6 month stats:
Weight: 17.4 pounds (75th%)
Length: 27 inches (90th%)

I think we're going to have a tall girl!

At 6 months Elliotte:
Sits up on her own
Sleeps 11-12 hours at night
Hates to be rocked before bed, likes to go to bed on her own
Plays in her crib in the mornings
Eats everything I put in front of her (except avocados)
Takes 3 naps a day
Drinks 4 (7oz.) bottles a day
Loves her feet
Plays on her mat independently with toys
Loves anything with dogs (big surprise, I brainwashed her)
Rolls all over the place
Had her first ear infection

Happy 6 month old!

Sweet face!

Hanging out

Loves her Buster

They are going to be good friends.

I think this is the beginning of some difficult monthly photos!

Uh oh! Cover girl pose! She did this on her own....

Loves peas!

Playing in her crib in the morning.

Sweet cousins. Leah came to play yesterday. I love how Elliotte is holding Leah.

Lots & Lots of Snow!

Well, the weather people finally got one right! I always feel bad for them when the weather doesn't do what they say, but you would think with all the high tech devices they have that they would be able to predict the future a little better! It started snowing Friday morning and didn't stop until Saturday around noon. I saw on the news that Crieve Hall got the most snow in Nashville, and I believe it! We would have been up to our knees in snow if the freezing rain hadn't compacted it Friday night. It's been a long time since we've had a snow like this. Elliotte was sick during the last snow, so I was glad we were able to get her out in it for a few minutes. I think she was a little blinded by all the white! The dogs weren't too crazy about the crunchiness of the snow either. But it sure was pretty!

My little 6 month old snow bunny.

Elliotte 5 Months!

Elliotte is 5 months old! New Year's Eve was her 5 month B'day and Buster's 12th B'day. We did absolutely nothing! I was in bed by 9:30pm and didn't feel the least bit bad about it. Pre-Elliotte is might have felt like I was missing out on something, but not now! Who cares!

At 5 months Elliotte:
Smiles all the time
Rolls from back to tummy immediately when you put her down
Reaches for everything
Can sit leaning forward in a tripod
Watches the dogs
Sleeps 10 hours at night-Yay!
Takes 3 naps during the day
Drinks five 6oz bottles a day
Has tried peas, apples & butternut squash (homemade by mommy)
Recognizes her name
Loves to bounce
Has had her first cold :(

Happy 5 month old
With her Bubba on his Birthday. She looks exactly like my baby pics here.

I thought this was such a funny picture! She looks like she's just hanging out.

One of the many instances when she rolled right over on her tummy.
