7 months!

Eliza turned seven moths old on Friday. We are thrilled that we are at this point, but also a little sad. It seems like just yesterday that she was seven weeks old and I was heading back to work. The time has gone by so quickly, even those long night hours when you're wondering if the baby is ever going to go to sleep. We have treasured every moment with Eliza so far and we can't wait to see what the next month will bring.

 Eliza is continuing to make great progress with her sleep. She takes consistent long naps at daycare and is getting better and better at night (with the occasional set-back). She had an extremely fun week! She got to eat peas (loves 'em) and sweet potatoes (love 'em). She is also plowing down lots of breastmilk and rice cereal. At this point, we are pretty sure that Eliza is going to love her food and not be a picky eater.

On Saturday Eliza went to a french bakery and impressed everyone with her chic style. Then she went and looked at the ducks at the local park. She was pretty excited but I think she was a little confused as to why the ducks didn't look like the duckies in her bath. She's a little bit obsessed with her duckies, so we made sure we had a firm grip on her.

Checking out the ducks. What? You don't think this is how one should dress when birdwatching?

Being cute

Eliza and her twin. Good thing I made Wes change out of his zebra print coat and pink pants or there would've been no telling them apart.

There was some excitement around the house on Thursday. We received a package in the mail from Grandma and it had all kinds of goodies: new outfits for Eliza, new clothes for mommy, books, candy (YEAH!), a coffee cup for Wes, plastic baggies (random huh?). But the best part was the Hula Girl outfit from Aunt Natalie who just came back from Hawaii.
Eliza is still working on crawling. She can take a step forward, but then her legs kind of flump down and she doesn't really know what to do. She can go backwards really well, and in circles! She continues to notice the dogs and they are noticing her. Hank is catching on that something cool is happening in the high chair (ie food). She loves Hank and laughs hysterically at him (so do we, but we don't tell him that). She also continues to petrify Quinnie. We've started playing Peek-A-Boo and that sends Quinnie flying (cause Peek-A-Boo is so scary). But he loves her and will definitely be her best friend. When she's four.
