ellie reese will be ten months old tomorrow. it's really hard for me to believe. it's also hard to picture what our life would be like without her with us. michael gave her extra kisses tonight before bed and said "i just love her so much" and it was the sweetest. he's such a great father.
little lady isn't walking on her own yet, but walks along the couch and pretty much anything else she can keep her balance with...except us....if we try to hold her up to walk she immediately bends her legs to sit. elle can wave hi and bye and she even sounds like she says "hi" or "buh bye" when she does it. she'll also act like she's blowing kisses when i make a lip smack sound. it's so cute! lately she's been bending over like she's going to do a headstand. the other day she kept doing it, looking at me through her legs and laughing hysterically at herself. she's become quite the eater. we've been sharing lots of watermelon lately. she's still nursing strong. two of her top teeth came through this week and two more are about to break through. it changes how she looks so much. we miss her sleeping in our bed, but this past month i've caught up on lots of sleep i didn't realize i was missing. she's such a big girl (but not really, she's taking after her momma so far and is on the shorter side).
time to start getting ideas together for her big day!

ps. yes, i changed my blog name back for various reasons, but mostly because this is a blog about my family and lemoncakes did not flow with our lifestyle. thanks for reading, sweet friends!!
