It's been a while...

Well, hello there.

I think it's safe to say that I took a much-needed break from this here blog. I guess that I will go ahead and update with her 7 month post. I will try to come back later  and write her 8 month post, and then MAYBE (just maybe) I will come back and write about something other than poop, first words, and drool. I know, get excited, people!

So... here are the pictures I took of her at about 7 months (no, I couldn't pick just one. Sorry) and the monthly letter:
Dear Elsie, 

Holy cow. You're seven months old. I know I say this all the time, but it really is crazy how time flies. Each day I look at you and I see that you're not my tiny little newborn anymore - you're getting so big. So big, in fact, that you said your first word! You'd said "dada" multiple times before, but never really made it obvious whether or not you knew what it meant. This time was different, though. You were crying because I'd changed your diaper and you wanted nothing to do with me. I picked you up to try and comfort you, but then Daddy walked into the room. You turned toward him, sort of reached for him, and, whimpering, said, "Da-da!" It seriously melted my heart. After that, we knew that you'd figured out who Daddy was. It's your only word, but it melts our hearts every single time you say it.
You're chowing down on solids, so you must be going through a growth spurt. The other day, you ate 2&3/4 cups of solids. That is a TON! I think it's safe to say that you are a big fan of the veggie blend. Thankfully, you've slowed down a little bit, so I don't think you'll quite outgrow ALL your clothes. You're still breastfeeding like a champ, but you just don't seem to be as interested as you used to be.

You've still got only two teeth, thank goodness! I say thank goodness for a few reasons: 1. You're kind of grumpy when your teeth decide to pop through. I'm not a fan. 2. You've decided that you like biting me. OUCH. 3. Have I mentioned how grumpy you get when you're busy getting teeth?

I lost count of how many diapers you've used. I know, I know. Terrible mom alert right here! I bet you're happy, though, because this just means that info won't be shared with your first boyfriend. Anyway. You're still in size 2 diapers and 6 month clothing. Carter's is still the brand of choice. I think you're about 27&3/4 inches long, but I have no idea how much you weigh. You're probably somewhere around 14 lbs and a few oz. So... long and skinny.
Other fun things:
You love bath time.
When we put you in your high chair, you bring your legs up, prop them on your tray, and lean back with your mouth open like you're waiting for us to feed you grapes or something. I'll have to get a picture of that one.
Screaming is your favorite.
You love the baby in the mirror.
You've learned the art of crocodile tears and the fake temper tantrum.
You start laughing and hitting things every time you see another baby. It's like you turn into a monkey for a minute because you're just SO EXCITED that there are other little people like you.


Basically, we love you.

Love, 

Mom

She's adorable! I write similar letters to my daughter and I know that when she's older she will appreciate the time I took to write about her as she changes and grows.

Hi Everyone,
I'm from United Kingdom London, City(GB). I met this spell caster called Dr IyaryI of driayaryi2012@hotmail.com online and so many other, but i decided to go with this particular spell caster and this is about 2 weeks ago.I needed the spell caster to reunite me and my lover because she started behaving strange and a day came she text me and told me she cannot continue with the relationship anymore, that she just want to be alone.But a close friend of hers shows the guy to me that she was now dating.So i contacted this spell caster because i was totally heart broken and i smoked and get drunk till i could not even notice if am standing or lying.This spell caster told me not to worry, he gave me hope that am to have her again just like old times, and i provided all the requirements, and in just 5 days, my ex lover called me crying over the phone asking for me to forgive her for her stupid act, and she swore with her mother grave to love me and never hurt me again.This was what the spell caster earlier told me and it came after he has done the spell and that same night, my lover came back to the house to me. I have never seen spell as powerful as this but now, am convinced that Dr IyaryI is the best ever, You can contact him through him email address: driayaryi2012@hotmail.com or driayaryi2012@hotmail.com or And also Reach him on WhatsApp Number: +2349057915709 Thanks Dr. IyaryI
