Double Digits

10 weeks...WOW! The past 10 weeks have been absolutely incredible! Words could not adequately describe all that I have felt and experienced in just a short period of time. On August 12th our lives were forever changed by the arrival of a tiny 6lb 10oz beautiful baby named Eleanor Grace. What a blessing! I am daily humbled by the fact that God chose Daniel and I to be Eleanor's parents. In our own strength and on our own we are so inadequate, but God chose us anyway. I hope I never take that reality for granted. In only a blink of an eye 10 weeks will have turned to 1 year and then to 1o years. It is my prayer that Daniel and I will live in the moment, cherish each day and not wish this time away. I am not saying I won't stop wishing for E to sleep through the night or to successfully nap in her crib during the day, but until that day comes I will enjoy the middle of the night feeding when she sleepily greets me with a huge smile as I change her diaper and nurse her back to sleep or the hours spent rocking her during the day as she coos and smiles in sweet slumber.

Where Has The Time Gone

Ella is now 9 weeks old! I cannot believe how quickly time has gone by. This past week she had her two month well child check-up. She now weighs 10lbs 7oz (48%) and is 23 1/2 inches (95%) long . She is long and lean! Daniel and I both expected her to be over 12 lbs due to her very healthy appetite, but she surprised us. She took her shots like a champ and cried for only about 60 seconds. Not too long but long enough for mom to start crying! When it was all over I picked her up and she gave me that sweet smile that just melts my heart. She is becoming more and more vocal and loves to "talk" to her daddy. Without further ado, here are the pictures from this week.

Week 8

Ella is 8 weeks old! This week was really busy for Ella. She continues to light up the room with her sweet smile and successfully rolled over from her tummy to her back 5 consecutive times. We also took a family trip to the State Fair of Texas on Wednesday. Mommy and Daddy enjoyed a Fletcher's Corny Dog and a Funnel Cake while Ella slept the morning away!
Ella's onesie reads "This is my little black dress."
Every girl needs a little black dress

She definitely provides a little sunshine on a cloudy day!
