Ellie: A checkup

Since I've been gone (insert Kelly Clarkson song) from this here blog, I figure you are all probably wondering just what my daughter looks like now.  And, if not, TOO BAD.  But seriously, what do you expect from a mother with a really really ridiculously good looking baby?

Well, I'll just ease your little hearts and tell you that she really doesn't look that much different.  At least, I think she doesn't.

What do you think?

We can even do a side-by-side comparison of a grainy birth picture and now (4 1/2 months).

Okay, okay.  She does look pretty darn different in THOSE pictures. I still can't believe that the baby on the left was just a day old only 4 1/2 months ago.

And, only 4 months ago, heck, even 1 1/2 months ago, she couldn't play with her toys...

 ...put her toys in her mouth...

...or even show off her incredible flexibility, core strength, and desire for chewing on her toes.

But, she still has her crazy long fingers.

I mean, look at those compared to MY fingers!
She's going to be a pianist folks.

At our last appointment she was 15 lbs 11 oz and 26.75 in long. She's becoming a big and long little girl.  The weird thing is that she's all torso. I don't know where she got that from.  Probably Nick's side.  My side is all legs.

I'm still trying to figure out how someone so little requires such BIG things! Think about it.  The crib, swing, exersaucer, chair, dresser of clothes, changing table, stroller, and the list continues!  It never ends.

But, it's all worth it because I am head over heels for her.  Everyday she smiles and no matter how tired or stressed out I am, it never ceases to make me feel better and put a smile on my own face.

Plus, she's getting really good at taking selfies.


  1. You know, I was just thinking my baby fever was subsiding a bit, and then this. Thanks a lot.

    I cannot get over that last selfie picture. Dying.

  2. Yep, she is definitely bald AND beautiful!

  3. Ellie, you're killing me with the cuteness!!
