Ellie turned eight months old a couple of days ago, so now she’s practically able to fend for herself. We like to put her down for bed and then go out and hit the town all night long. She barely notices we’re gone.
Okay, so that may be far from it, but it is amazing how far she’s come in eight little months. It’s been incredible to watch her go from laying around to rolling to rocking to crawling to standing. It’s just starting to set in that she’s going to continue to amaze us for a long time. Today she was sitting on the rug in the living room and I sat next to her and rolled a ball over to her. She rolled it back to me and we went back and forth at least ten times. It really just blew my mind!
It’s not only been a big evolution for her, but huge for Brian and I in our relationship. Communication has been different and neither of us ever really feel like we get a moment to catch a breath, but we both know we couldn’t be happier.
Here are a few pics of Elle-Belle from the last week.
