She’s Crawling!

Daddy is working on the computer and I’m working on crawling

Elise recently began getting up on all fours in crawling position, but wasn’t making much forward progress. She took advantage of some extra practice time on a recent visit to see Grandmama and Granddaddy though and started to get those arms and legs coordinated. We’re not going to enter her in any speed crawling contests yet, but she’s definitely getting the hang of it. Maybe she wanted to slip in the accomplishment just shy of 8 months old or maybe she wanted the extra audience cheering her on. Either way, we’re all very proud of her. And maybe a little worried. I’m going to go lock the cabinets now…

We did get a short video of Elise Crawling.

June and July

I started this post at the end of July and figured I’d add to it in August and post it as a summer compilation. Since it’s now November I’m just going to back date this post and give up on that idea. So here’s June and July…

7 Months Old

I’ll look at the camera and smile, but only if you don’t put that sticker on me.

Where did another month go?! Elise is 7 months old already! We did a quick photo shoot before daycare last week. (It’s always a quick photo shoot, isn’t it… That’s life I suppose; never enough time for everything.) Her vocabulary has expanded from Mama and Dada to include a variety of other mostly gibberish one- and two-syllable sounds (I have heard a papa and nana in there).  She likes to chatter to herself at bedtime especially. She has become an adept roller, bouncing off the sides of her crib or pushing us to the edges of our own bed when she snuggles in between us. Harlan likes to climb in bed with us in the morning too, and his first snuggles are always for his sister. They are sweet kids.

I’m laughing at silly brother standing next to Mommy.
Ok, if I can't eat the sticker, I'm going to try this crinkly sun.

Mommy had to give me a toy so I didn’t keep taking the 7 month sticker, but then most of the photos were of me with a toy in my mouth. She says I’m not making things easy on her.
