here she is looking beautiful just a few minutes ago. she says "da da" and "ba ba" all the time. she scoots like a champ. she sleeps wonderfully. she wrinkles up her nose and makes this funny sniffing noise when she's tired of doing what she's doing. she's starting to have seperation anxiety. and she screeches...all the time. her favorite food is organic bananas, peaches and oatmeal (all in one jar). she's starting to drink pear juice out of a sippy cup. she loves doc and her daddy. she's almost too big for her swing and her infant carrier. she still loves her praise baby dvds. i find myself picking her up and having to clench my teeth so i don't squeeze her too hard. her solid, heavy baby-ness in my arms is a feeling i never want to forget.
i love you, my ellie belle.
