We went camping with some friends a couple weeks ago and had so much fun!  Eliana was so good, just loving the outdoors!  It always seems to rain when I’m camping, and this time was no exception.  We woke up in the morning to a down pour.  We were supposed to rent a boat and go out on a lake for the day, but the rain delayed us a few hours.  When it stopped it was beautiful!  We had lots of fun being on the water!





Family time is the best!  What does your family do for fun?

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Life is busy.  SO busy!  Having a baby really does make you feel like there is not enough time in the day.  Eliana is 4 months old already and it is unbelievable how much she is changing every day!

At 4 months:


-Eliana loves to stand!  I swear if she had the balance she would be walking, she is so strong!


-She still refuses to roll over – it scares her, her arms fly out to the sides.

-She smiles all of the time!  All I have to do is make eye contact with her.  She smiles at strangers in the store.


-Sleeping on average 5 hours through the night, although sometimes 7.

-Can sit up on her own for a couple of minutes, after a few minutes she is leaning so far over her face is almost on the floor.  She’ll be there soon!

-Everyone thinks she is 6 months old…she loves to nurse!

-Takes on average 4 naps a day.


-Talks and talks and talks!  All of the time!

-Chews and sucks on anything she can, but still no teeth.


We laugh so much during the day at the little personality that she is developing.   This is such a fun age.  I am so thankful to be able to stay home with her!
