Elsa Louise at 31 Weeks
My dear sweet Miss Elsa - how is it that we are past the half way mark of your first year? It might have something to do with the fact that I get lost in those blue eyes and all that chub and the days slip right on by! You turned seven months old this week. If I had to guess you have maybe put on a half a pound since your six month visit. The only thing I've had to retire is your kissaluv contour diapers. I've had those diapers since your sister was six months old. But now we're moving on to new territory. Mommy is slowly grabbing hemp and bamboo diapers when I find a good deal on Craigslist. We're even venturing into the world of wool diaper covers and prefolds. I'll tell you all about it when you get older. :)
I started to teach you the sign for 'nurse' this week. It will be fun to see how quickly you catch on to it.
You made Mama so happy this week when you started reaching for your Daddy. You are a mama's girl but it warmed my heart to see you want to be with someone else and express it by reaching out.
Now that you are an expert sitter upper I can pop a yoga DVD in the DVD player and do 10-15 minutes of yoga while you play next to me. It's nice to know that all you need is for me to be close by, not always holding you. Don't get me wrong, I love to hold you. In fact I miss you at night now that you sleep in your crib.
Tomorrow I will wake to see your smiling face and whisper yet another prayer of thanksgiving for the gift of you.
Love you baby girl,
