Elsa Louise at 23 weeks

We returned from our first vacation as a family of five yesterday. Elsa was a dream as was her cousin, Josie. Both babies slept almost all the way to the hotel and did sleep all the way home. Out of six hours in the car there was less than five minutes of fussing combined between both babes. Impressive huh? We had so much fun! I can't wait to share the photos of our adventure, but since this is Elsa's weekly update, I should get back on track. Not much extra time as I'm sure is the case for everyone. Christmas is just around the corner and I'm behind on so many things. Thanks to this little cutie I'm not really all that stressed about it. I'm embracing this time with my kids as much as possible and I gotta tell you that at the end of the day when I look at their sleeping faces before I crawl into bed it feels really good to know that we made the most of our time together! Babies grow so fast! These money-saving promos might come in handy for all their needs and wants. 

How cute is Elsa in her cousin Elsie's strawberry hat from 10 years ago? She's the fourth kid to wear it and from the looks of it she'll get to wear it next year too.

And now for some updates from the past week and a half:

Sat on Santa's lap for the first time.
Went to her first tea party. 
Slept over at Grandma Gayle's house.
Went on first waterpark adventure.
Slept in a hotel for the first time.
Started saying Ba Ba Ba Ba.
Her eyes are turning a lighter shade of blue.
Her hair is really starting to grow.
I also noticed how LONG her eyelashes are getting - they curl up so perfectly.

So beautifully and wonderfully made sweet baby girl! Love you!
