I have to say that Elise is the sweetest little girl around.  She's been in a little bit of weird mood the past couple of days.  I'm not sure why,  but I think it might be because she's changing and growing.  She's grabbing her toes and pushing up (like the pics below) much easier and she's slept through the night (9 hours) the past couple of nights.  Dane finally saw her roll over yesterday.  It was her third time to do it.  Her eating and bowel habits are changing.  I thought she'd never poop, but she did this morning without difficulty, much to my relief.  She just takes everything in and it's times like these that I realize just how much babies and children take in and learn and wish desperately that I spoke another language or played the piano.  I just have to settle for spending time with the neighbors across the street and asking them to speak to Elise in Spanish or having friends and family play music when they come to visit.  But I kind of like how that works out too.


  1. A cool way to need your neighbors, to give Elise something that you're not able to. I like it.

    Thankful for last weekend's visit, Michelle. I love you so much.

  2. thanks for sharing...just wrote you something...but guess it disappeared! ha!
    Your little girl is growing so...know you both thank God daily for this precious "gift" He has loaned you as parents to love and train her in the Word of God!
    Sure would love to see you more often, but we feel when we pray for you daily, that it binds our heart together in prayer. love and prayers, grandpa and grandma Haas
