Seven Months of Ellia




Age:  Seven months tomorrow!
Height:  No idea but we're always saying she seems on the tall side.
Weight:  If our scale is at all accurate, about 15.5 pounds.
Clothing size:  This varies based on the brand, but most of her clothes are from Baby Gap/Old Navy and she wears 3-6 month onesies + tops and 6-12 month bottoms.
Diaper size: 3
Eating:  I'm pretty certain she likes solids more than formula.  It's not uncommon for her to down two pouches in one meal.  We've been getting a lot of the Plum Organics pouches because they've been on sale at Target, and I don't think I've fed her a kind she hasn't liked!  We've also been giving her samples of a lot of the foods we eat.  I'll share an apple with Ellie every morning - either she'll gum at/suck on a big slice or I'll put a chunk in her fresh food feeder (also a good baby stocking stuffer!).  I hope she continues to be such a good eater, because her mama tends to be a little picky. ;)
Sleeping: She's usually asleep by 9 and wakes up around 5.  She has slept through the night a few times but typically gets up at least once, even if she's just in that sleepy/crying about nothing trance and goes back down pretty easily.  Bedtime has been a challenge lately though.  She'll be rubbing her eyes and pulling her hair tired, but still fights it.  Naps are still hit or miss.  And as I recently discussed, she's still in our bed.
Favorite toys:  She's really been liking her blender/toaster lately, but she's not too picky as long as she can put part of it in her mouth. :)
Loves:  Not much has changed since last month, but if I had to pick a few favorites, I'd say the cats, her binkys, being outside, baths, stroller rides, music + dancing, and silly faces.

Ellie is this close to crawling, still doesn't have any teeth, and I'm convinced she considers getting dressed the worst part of her day most of the time (other than going to bed and getting her face wiped after she eats).  She's been doing a lot of fake coughing and fake laughing lately - not sure where she picked those things up!  She gets more and more of a personality every day and I always find myself thinking that this it the best age yet (I think Tyler agrees). :)

When I saw that Ellie was turning seven months old on Thanksgiving, I knew I had to do a comparison to Thanksgiving last year when I was 16 weeks pregnant! We were feeling extra thankful knowing that we had a baby on the way, but it really doesn't compare to how we feel this year. :)  
Yes, she is holding a plastic cup... whatever keeps her happy, right? ;)We love you so much, baby girl!! XO

  1. She is so darn cute! What a good little eater! Weston thinks he's too busy to eat anything ever, little stinker. Those mesh feeders are the best! Isla used to love frozen bananas in it when she was teething. I forgot they existed somehow until the other day when I picked up a few for him, can't wait to try it :) Ps Weston fake coughs ALL THE TIME-- little weirdos ;)

    1. Too funny! I love the frozen banana idea, we'll have to try it. :) and yes, she can be a little piggy sometimes but I'm okay with that! ;)
