9 months

my how time flies!
i can't believe we have a 9 month old!
and it just keeps getting better and better...
eleanor facts:
she weighs 16 lb 4 oz. (20%)
she is 27 inches long. (45%)
she has been sleeping through the night for a little over a month now, 7:30pm to 7:30am... i truly thought this day would never come for us but oh how it did and it's AMAZING.
she is eating baby oatmeal, fruits and veggies for most meals but is transitioning to "big people" food.
she loves cheese, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, grilled chicken and green beans.
she is nursing 5 times a day.
she LOVES to babble and says dada to almost everyone and everything.
blake & i are convinced she has said Buuu Dee to buddy a couple times... ;o)
she still has no teeth & still isn't too interested in crawling which is completely ok with me considering we have done ZERO baby proofing.
she has a new face she makes...she squints her eyes and scrunches her nose with a giant smile...i really need to capture that in a picture because it is the cutest!
blake headed off to colorado with his brother and it was so sweet to see him say goodbye to eleanor. he even teared up (which he pretended was for me) but i know fully that it was because of our sweet girl. she definitely has him wrapped around her lil finger!


santa baby

here are some fun moments with eleanor over the last few weeks taken on my iphone.
so thankful to have a decent camera on my phone for times when i don't have my 'big' camera with me!

eleanor enjoying a mum mum in daddy's lap.

my sleeping beauty after waking up from a nap.

trying to escape from the highchair. i suppose it's time to start using the straps.

grandma's scarf wrapped around her head on a cold night out in c-town.

kickin back in the grocery cart while momma shops.

enjoying a morning walk with rett carreker, bentley long & lyla durrett.

a little skeptical of santa's furry face...i would be too!
