Eloise is 5 Months!
It's hard to believe that it's been 5 months. I think I say that every time a month passes. I'm sure I'll say it as the years pass as well... but it's absolutely true. This little girl, who is our whole world, just keeps growing and changing. I can't imagine life without her... and I can barely remember what life was like before her.
Especially on days like today... the "mile markers"... I find myself in tears more often. What can I say? It's bittersweet to watch your baby grow.
This was my first attempt at putting her down for a nap in her crib... that was about 20 minutes ago. I couldn't believe how easily she fell asleep. I was anticipating quite the battle!
This little outfit she has on... I bought it probably 8 years ago. I had always dreamed of having a little girl. I know you can't see the outfit very well... but it's an absolutely adorable jumper with a little bonnet. I was saving it for "someday"... hoping that day would come... and it finally did. I thank God every day for this little girl! (I've also bought some boy "someday" clothes... so maybe that will be in our future--the not-so-near future!)
