Actually she is now 9 months old but I am a tad behind….so while my kids are on a road trip with their wonderful Auntie and Uncle, I am going to try catching up a bit. There is soo much to catch up on. Let’s start with a lovely little Ellabeth’s 8th month.
When Ella was 7 months old she… went apple picking
Enjoyed ringing a silver bell for her supper….(but not eating it….just smearing it on the tray)
Helped to carve her first pumpkin, enjoyed riding on mommy’s shoulders..
Went trick or treating as a sunflower
And spent days after playing happily with her haul
Learned to wave. Here she had just finished napping on the shoulder of one of her favourite’s Jani, when she woke up and saw me across a crowded room. It melted my heart. As one might imagine.
Had a formal introduction to Thumper the Bunny
Fell in love with wooden puzzles (in more ways than one)….and clapping
And making “sniffy” face…..and giving mommy awesome foot rubs
and clapping some more..
She had her first nudie photo shoot*scandalous*
Went to her first Christmas tree lighting downtown
And her first caroling horse and carriage ride (during which she clearly did not approve of the raucous choir)
The next day she attended her first holiday parade. Again…impressed…not so much.
But when we got home,this candy cane striped pencil really got her in a festive mood!
When Ellabeth was 7 months old she was quite wonderful. Tweet this!
