27 Weeks and 1st Thanksgiving!

Eleanor is 27 weeks old today, and yesterday we celebrated our first Thanksgiving as a family.

We made way too much food and missed all of our extended family back in Phoenix, but it was still a very lovely day. Holidays are so much more special since Eleanor came along. We're all getting so excited for Christmas!

Six Months!

Eleanor is SIX months old! Can you believe it?

Her baby days are half way over. In the blink of an eye she went from a tiny, sleepy newborn, the exact size as my tummy used to be, to a chubby baby who can feed herself (sort of), sit up on her own (for a few minutes), a baby who laughs and babbles and squeals with delight, who reaches out for me with her little hands, who is full of curiosity and vibrancy.

I would give anything to be able to slow time down, but at the same time I am so excited to watch Eleanor grow and change, to see her personality develop, to learn her likes and dislikes, to hear her first words and see her first steps. I feel so privileged to call myself her mother.

I've fallen behind with my posts, so here are a few photos from the last few weeks to catch up...
