Elijah! You are still such a sweet baby. You aren't really moving a whole lot, but you sit up like a pro and will reach forward all the way until your tummy is on the ground. You prefer the jumper for your exercise rather than crawling or rolling. Some days you are quite chatty while other days you are more of an observer.
Weight: about 20 pounds
Size: Size 3 diapers, and I'm exclusively buying 12 month and up clothes now. You still squeeze into smaller sizes.
Feeding: Such a big month getting to eat new foods. You like anything on a spoon, and will get impatient if we feed you to slow. You have tried pureed: carrots, pears, apples, squash, bananas, sweet potatoes, green beans, and peaches with your rice cereal.
Someday you will be sleep trained. Maybe when I'm not working and we're in our new house. Until then you sleep with me at night, fall asleep in one of your grandparents arms, and nap best in the car seat while you are traveling all around Indiana.
Likes: getting to really start playing in the bathtub, pulling everyone's hair
Dislikes: bumping your head

A good thing about being in Indiana in the spring is the chance to go to the Vera Bradley Outlet sale. My mother has gone for years now, sometimes getting tickets to go in the opening days, some years going several times. This year, we were all pretty busy so we had to wait until the open session on Saturday to go. We got there around 3:30 and it was busy but not too crowded. There was still a pretty good selection. Prices may have down a bit more on the last day of the sale, but I felt there were quite a few good deals there on the second to last day.
This time was special because it was little Maci's first time to get a VB. She loves clothes and accessories already, so she was happy to look through the rows of VB items. She was literally dancing through the aisles to the music, and did very well for being two years old and missing her nap.
|Got her purses (two of them-she knows you grab everything first and make decisions later).|
|A bag for pre-school in a couple more years.|
|Making her final choice.|
|Still in good moods after the short line!|
