Seven Months Old

Ellie loves eating!!! Carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, green beans, prunes, peaches, apples, and bananas! She didn't care for peas but I don't like them either so that's fine with me! She loves grabbing the spoon while she's eating and making a big mess. But we've gotten cleaner with more practice. Thank goodness Grandma Smith gave us this plastic bib that we can spray off each time she eats!

Ellie still has NO teeth and NO sign of any coming soon. She is getting better and better at her army crawl and loves being mobile. She is getting really good at picking things up and grasping objects. She is a big fan of any and all jewlry! Even the smallest earings she will yank out of my ears.

RSV! Yuck! Sunday night Ellie started having a runny nose, sneezing and coughing. Things only got worse over the next few day so I took her in and they said she had RSV (respiratory syncytial virus). It's a very common virus that causes cold-like symptoms in children. It can be more serious for babies and some even need to be hospitalized. Thank goodness we have a tough little girl. She doesn't seem to be bothered with the horrible hacking couch or the runny nose. She does not like getting it sucked out but it getting better and holding still for mommy and daddy. To add to it she got an ear infection because of the congestion but has antibiotics to help her get rid of that. She's been able to sleep through the night still and is still playing and smiling! What more could we ask for?!

Ellie found new toys to play with in her room... she's tall enough to reach when daddy's holding her

Lights out!

Poor little red face... we hope you get well soon!
