Elsa Louise at 17 Weeks

Elsa turned 17 weeks old this past Friday and 4 months yesterday. So why does it look like she fits in the basket all of a sudden? I removed one of the blankets so our little chunk could fit in it a tad bit longer. I like my basket pictures, what can I say? Speaking of chunk - she weighs 19.5 pounds (97%) and is 24.5 inches long (75%). That makes her almost a pound lighter than her sister at this age.

So what's new this week? This:

Also, she's finally stopped screaming when we set her down. Hallelujah! It is so fun to hear her 'talk' to us - it's more of a squawk/squeal but it's music to my ears.  She learned to reach for toys this week too. Her favorite hangout is her floor gym. I think her hair is getting longer, but you'd never know to look at her bald head under her hat. I try to write in her journal at least once a month so I'm gonna save the mushy stuff for there....


  1. oh, I love when babies start to reach for toys and realize that they can PLAY! so cute! such a fun stage for them and for you to watch them learn. she will be learning new things and gaining new skills everyday!

    thanks for linking up!! :)

  2. oh my, she is too cute! I love this age... so much fun! Enjoy every moment! :)


  3. So fun! I am really glad she is letting you put her down, that stage is really hard, especially with other kiddos. She has officially caught Hannah in weight, but Hannah has her by a few inches in length :o)
    Her hat is really cute...I'm waiting to see if she has Julia's hair :o)
