Creepy Crawlies!

Elliana just started trying to crawl about a week ago. Here she is in a Halloween outfit, getting the hang of it, making it across the living room pretty quickly once she decides to go.

Happy Birthday Mommy!

This past Saturday was Mommy's birthday and we had cake and icecream on Sunday. Elliana was mesmerized by the candles on the cake and helped Kristen blow them out. (If you are wondering, drool will put out flames). She is still trying her best to get the hang of crawling forward, and now she is really close to being able to tuck one leg underneath herself to sit up from laying down, but not quite there yet.
Happy in the exersaucer

Here are some more pics of Elliana. She is practicing crawling still, mostly sliding around backwards, rocking back and forth, and getting up on her hands and tippie toes. Big smile in this one.

6 Months Old!

Elliana is now 6 months old and had her checkup on Friday. She weighed in at 16 lbs 11 oz and was 26.5" long. She also got FOUR more shots, but only cried for a minute before Mommy calmed her down. She is still practicing her pre-crawl, rocking back and forth on her hands and knees, and now she blows raspberries all the time, really cute. She is also allowed to eat little pieces of bread, chew on bagels or pizza crust, and have some juice too!
Here she is trying to sit up in her swing.
Practicing eating like a big girl.

Nice weekend!

So Elliana is now having sweet potatoes for big girl food and loves them, but tried green beans, and they seemed to give her a tummy ache. She also tried a big girl sippie cup, not sure if she drank much out of it, but she definitely loved playing with it. Elliana is also doing razzes a little bit, and loves to make silly noises when we put our fingers near her mouth. She is still practicing her pre-crawl, getting close to being able to push herself onto her bum (sitting) from her belly. She is really good at rolling now too, if you look away for a second she might be 2 rolls, and a backwards slide away, 5 feet or more!
Here she is all bundled up to watch the Cross-Country meet (Michael, Anthony, and Jessie all run).
Big girl cup!

Who are you sticking that tongue out at?!?!

Pre-Crawl Practice (backwards)

Sorry for the lack of pictures lately, I will try to be better about posting. Elliana has been really practicing getting on her hands and knees and then rocking back and forth. She is actually pretty good at moving herself backwards, if you take your eyes off her for a second she can be across the room with a roll, and backwards slide. She is still loving her exer-saucer, who is happier than her?
She also still loves her Beethoven video she sits up right in the boppy and watches the whole thing...
Playtime with Mommy, here comes a big wet kiss!
Here she is on her hands and knees. Picture her rocking back and forth really fast until she pushes herself forward onto her belly...If I can get a video of it, I'll post it.
