Here are a few things Elise learned this week:
I think Elise looks so grown up in this picture! I have been looking at pictures of her from the summer and staring in amazement at how tiny she was. For the first time I actually wished I could go back and hold my teeny tiny baby! Most of the time I find myself wishing she would grow faster so we can play, and bake and colour together. But for this moment I just want to hold her and keep her small forever.
Here are some photos, I took today, of Elise! Her giant eyes sure make me smile! It is amazing how many big eye photos I have of her. It seems like as soon as the camera comes out her eyelids completely disappear!
Today I gave Elise her praying ducky and, of course, she put it straight into her mouth. It didn't take long before she bit down on its foot and it started to pray! It didn't take long for her to make the connection and start chomping on that foot over and over again. Such a little smartie pants.
_It is often hard to figure out what Elise is trying to tell us, but one thing she communicates with ease is her love for her Dad. She always saves her biggest and best smiles for him and is so content in his arms. Saturday mornings are the best time of the week for her and Josh to get some real quality time together. But Josh's lunch breaks are a nice treat too!
_Elise had her flu shot this morning and was one tough little girl. She didn't even cry! The rest of the day however, has been rough. She has a bit of a fever and has had a hard time napping. I have been very thankful for her swing today as it is the only way I have been able to get her to have any kind of nap. Poor little one! Well, I guess it's better than her getting sick! here's hoping for a good night!
__ The last week has been amazing! We have had very few reasons to leave the house and it has been so nice to relax before life takes off at full-speed ahead again. Elise is now rolling from her stomach to back and back to stomach, almost sitting up by herself, and working really hard at getting to toys and other objects that are out of reach. In response to this, Josh and I have been working away at getting our house ready for those sneaky little hands which will soon be able to reach a lot more than the toes they are connected to. Everyday Josh comes home to a new project that I need his help with and our house is slowly transforming into what we believe will be a wonderful home for Elise to continue growing and playing safely in! I have also been having some fun with the iPod and the CamWow App! he he he.
