6 Months

Elise is already 1/2 a year old!  Enjoy the pictures.

Note the sequence of events...

Anything within reach ends up in the mouth!

Let's see, new things this month are: standing with support, sitting on her own until she loses her balance, saying "da-da", getting mad when things are taken away from her, rolling over from her belly to her back daily, eating food (she's loving it so far, all two days of it) and I'm sure a lot more things that I'm not thinking of at the moment.  Elise's disposition is as sweet as ever.  We're very proud of her and completely in love with her.  As her personality shows more it makes us think about parenting more.  Thinking about how to love her, teach her and discipline her well as she grows seems overwhelming at times.  The immensity of it draws me to relying on God to give us wisdom and love to do it day by day.  He loves her more than we do and knows better than we do what is best for her.


  1. Love seeing her grow and change even if it is from a distance. Thanks so much for sharing this blog. I enjoy it so much! Love all of you and can't wait to get hold of Elise again!
    Love ya bunches!!!

  2. So adorable! I already knew what was going to happen to that zebra! Ha!
