Elliana at 10 months

I stole this idea from Kelly at Kelly's Korner.

I think it's a great way to document Ellie's first year of life though.

Elliana, this is your life at 10 months old:

~I don't know exactly what you weigh, but I would guess that you are about 15 pounds and 6 ounces now.

~You are still wearing 6-9 month clothing.

~You have two bottom teeth. No new teeth this month, but you seem to be teething again.

~Your eyes are still blue.

~I still can't quite tell what color your hair is. In some lighting it looks blond, and in other lighting it looks light brown. I'll need to see more of it to know for sure.

~Your hair is just barely long enough that I can put a bow in it now!

~Your nap schedule is starting to change. Some days you'll have two naps, and some days you're doing fine with just one nap.

~You are crawling so well now and you are into EVERYTHING!

~You have started standing on your own for short lengths of time now. I think cruising or walking is just around the corner.

~You are still using everything in sight to pull yourself up. You use chairs, couches, cabinets, the bathtub, walls, and even Mommy or Daddy's legs.

~Your favorite place to play right now is the living room.

~You're not really interested in toys right now. You are such an explorer and you just love to explore. You still really like the laundry basket and you have started losing interest in the walker. You'd rather be free to roam around.

~You LOVE your baths!

~You still LOVE to eat!

~You have started feeding yourself finger foods. You get this really cute, proud smile across your face when you feed yourself. Your favorite thing to snack on are those flavored puff cereals.

~You still have a very happy, bubbly personality and you smile at everyone you make eye contact with. You make everyone around you smile.

~You babble all the time and you can say "Mama, Dad-da, and Hi". No new words this month.

~Your current nicknames are Ellie, Missy, and Kiddo.

~Since you are so curious, and you love exploring so much, we've had to start telling you "NO" on a daily basis now. You aren't quite sure what to make of this yet. :)

~You've also started putting many objects into your mouth that don't belong there. In the last few weeks I have retrieved the following items from your mouth: a paperclip, small pieces of pine cone, a staple, and a granola bar rapper. You scare me sometimes sweet girl, but to my knowledge you haven't swallowed anything you shouldn't have. This is why I need to watch you like a hawk!

We love you Ellie, and we love watching you grow! We are enjoying watching your personality come out. Happy 10 months!

10 months! Wow! Where had the time gone?! I love you, little one. More than you can possibly know.

And I agree. The bow is absolutely darling!

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Husband, Caleb

Husband, Caleb
Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.


We fight one day and then the next day we're fine. We're always loud and crazy when we get together. We're very passionate. We've been through it all together, lots of ups and downs. We're eachother's biggest supporters.
