ellie was in the sweetest mood for her birthday this morning. until...i let two nurses stick her with four different needles. she's been a little cranky since then, needless to say.
she weights 13 pounds, 4 ounces and is 24.5 inches long.
the doctor said rolling from back to front (which she did first) is a six-month skill!
i was beaming.
also, the nurses heard her babbling away (before the needles), and said, "it's obvious people talk to her."
that made me feel good.
and finally, the doctor said if she starts waking up in the night again (she's slept through the night for the past week -- i didn't tell you -- i didn't want to jinx it), that we can start to feed her rice cereal and orange/yellow baby foods like squash, carrots, sweet potatoes, apple sauce, pears, etc.
can you believe my baby might start eating baby food?!
here are some photos of her from the last month.
does anyone else think she looks exactly like landon? or is that just me?
kisses from brother.

ellie and landon's pepaw. love this photo.
"i love you, miss butterfly."
my insanely skinny babysitter. sheesh.
ellie loves to hold her toes. it occupies her just long enough before she decides to roll over.
and the rollover.
"i'm so proud!"
"i look like my daddy."
Aiming for progress, not perfection.
