3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 months...

Watch Elizabeth grow...

Beautiful baby girl!  You are so precious!  God knew just what we needed when he gave you to us!  You are so gentle and easy!  You smile at Jacob most of the time, and love to watch him play all over the house. 

You have two teeth, which started coming in around 6 months old and you weren't even cranky!  In the past few months you have learned how to sit up, roll over both ways, and lately you have begun to spin your self around in circles on your tummy.  You want to crawl so badly, but can't figure out how to propel yourself forward.  You kick your legs out over and over, it's so cute to watch. 

You began eating rice cereal around 4 and a half months old.  You didn't know what to do at first, but after a week or two, you caught on and have not stopped since!  You eat pureed food three times a day and have eaten many different fruits and veggies, and even had baby yogurt!  There's only been one veggie that you didn't seem to like: asparagus.  I don't blame you, it's an acquired taste for most people!  ;)  But you LOVE fruit and will open your mouth for the next bite before we get the next spoonful ready.  Ha! 

You like to have two naps each day and one is always longer than the other.  Usually the morning nap is the shorter of the two.  You are sleeping through the night starting at 8pm and usually wake up around 5 or 6 for a morning feeding, and will sleep for another hour or so after that feeding.  Occasionally you will wake up in the night and need your pacifier, but just the other night, you found your pacifier all by yourself and stuck it back in your mouth.  Pure Bliss!

We love you so much!  You are growing and changing and learning so much!  You are our second beautiful miracle!  God has big plans for you, Elizabeth!
