10 months of our Sweet E!

We are officially in double digits, my love, 10 months old!!

Getting closer and closer to the big year!!
(and yes, I am in full fledged birthday party planning mode!!)

You are so fun. I really don't know what else to say about this month, except for fun. 
You have so many smiles and giggles and belly laughs and happy faces for us all the time!

Please excuse my scary, no make-up, over exaggerated faces...I will do anything to get that giggle out of her!!
This went on for like 10 minutes. The Hubs was in the back of the house and heard it and came out with the camera. 
Probably the best 10 mins of my life!

Even when you do fuss, most of the time it is that fake cry and I can't help but giggle a little because I KNOW that is a fake cry and you are trying so hard to get your way! :) 
But when you do have that real cry, that big crocodile tears cry, oh it breaks our hearts!! I can't squeeze you tight enough!!
Speaking of, you have officially become attached to your Momma. You don't always go to others as easily as you used to...you will even cry and throw a fit to get to me. Not gonna lie, a little bit of me loves it (is that bad?!) but I do hate it too!

You are weighing in at __________, and that is from the scale at home which is less than 100% accurate, but we will go with it! :)
You are in 9-12 month clothes, which I am loving! I love all these little rompers that show off those fabulous little Michelin baby legs!
Couldn't you just die?!
Here are a few more....just because I can't get enough!

Still in size three diapers.
And eating everything in sight!!
You have yet to meet a food you don't like.
And straws, those are your latest entertainment obsession at restaurants, normally gives us at least 15 minutes!
 Those bottom right pictures....we gave you a lemon...we are awful parents....it was so funny though!!

You crawling everywhere....you latest favorite game is Momma chasing you....and I love it!
You giggle like crazy and keep turning around to make sure I am still coming to getcha! We MUST get a video of this!!

You are pulling up on every thing and you are always very proud of yourself!
And I love cheering you on and watching you beam with pride!

I'm pretty sure you will be walking soon as you are already moving around the furniture....scary!! Exciting, but scary...

You had some fun with Daddy this month!
and of course a few pics with Momma too!
 You got see all your friends this month a lot!
How sweet are you girls holding hands?!

You still love playing with toys that aren't toys....

And you are loving to dance! If you hear music or a rattle you bounce and squeal and cheer and wave your hands!

 You still absolutely love your bath time, it's like your favorite thing ever! I cannot wait to get you in a pool!!

We took you on your first road trip for Easter this year!
We went to see some family on your Momma's side in Charlotte.
We normally fly but decided to do a road trip this time...never again! HA!
You have never been a big fan of long car rides, so I'm not sure why we thought 7 hours would work!
You refused to sleep on the way there so Mom resorted to the iPad the last hour...and thank goodness for that! 
It saved our sanity! HA!
We stopped in Knoxville on the way (aka, your Daddy's heaven!)
see below, his favorite breakfast place!
He was beaming with pride that you and I were there with him! Happy Happy Boy! 

We had such a great time with family!
You got to meet 2 of your cousins (well they are my cousin's babies...so what does that make you, 2nd cousins??) Alexa and Christian and spend some quality time with you Uncle Adam & Aunt Gracie, Cousin Arin, and of course your GG (aka, your Great Grandma)!
And of course we celebrated your first Easter! It was such a special day!

And of course just some super cute pics from this month...

This pic doesn't do it justice, you were holding you head in your hand and leaning to the side...I about died at the cuteness. 
I got my camera as fast as possible and this was the best I could get before you stopped. You were like, "Whoa is me....".

After a long day at school you passed out in the card on the way home....never happens!
Look at those cheeks!!

Happy Baby!!
Helping Momma cleaning out the closet!

You are slowly growing into a little toddler, which I love watching but it also makes me a bit sad!
You are growing oh so fast, and as I always say, it's very bitter sweet.
You have me and your Daddy wrapped, there is absolutely no question about that!
You are amazing, Monk Monk/Lisey/Pretty Pretty/Monkey.
We love you to the moon and back!
(and then some!)
Happy 10 Months, Elise!

XOXO, Momma & Daddy

She is just precious Sarah! The video of her giggling with you just melts my heart!

Emily Marie said...

She's getting so big and looks cute as ever! The pic of E and your husband playing the drums reminds me of our house. It's one of my husbands favorite things to do with our baby girl, and she just loves to bang on the drums like crazy!!!

Jess Norden said...

I love, love, love her legs!!! Do you just die when you dress her in those outfits?? I don't care what anyone says...girl clothes are SO MUCH cuter than boy clothes!! I so wish I could put Cam in a dress just for a second ;) Happy 10 Months!

Becca Moss said...

She's so adorable! Love her chubby cheeks!

Amy said...

Oh she is just so cute!! There is nothing better than a laughing, happy baby! :-)

Sara said...

Isn't this just the best age? I'm so in love with 9-12 months. Mac has really just come alive these last few months. He's all over the place and I feel like I can literally see him growing bigger and smarter by the minute. E is SO cute! What a gorgeous little lady!
