My little sweet pea....

I thought I would take a minute to blog about Elsie Rae. As a busy mom of TWO now I barely get onto the computer (thank goodness for cell phone APS!) When I do get online it's RUSH RUSH RUSH... so besides posting a few pics of my *almost* 7 week old I wanted to tell everyone a little bit about her. So here goes...

~Elsie is a MAMAS GIRL! She loves her daddy and will smile & talk to him but when she's tired (or hungry OBVIOUSLY) she WANTS HER MAMA! No one else will do, NO.MATTER.WHAT!

~She does NOT like to be put down. Thank goodness for my numerous carriers! If it wasn't for my moby wrap, ring sling or ergo my house would be an *even bigger MESS!

~Elsie is VERY strong, she holds her head up very well and even does a little "sit up" type move. She has come very close to rolling over, i'm HOPING that was a fluke as Cash could roll over at 2 weeks (no joke).

~She LOVES to smile and talk to us. She is very alert and happy!

~Elsie is a GREAT sleeper! She usually goes down for the night around 10pm and doesn't wake to eat until 4ish, but then goes back to sleep. God Bless her!

~She loves her milk. The girl can eat and eat and eat and eat and eat and eat... yeah... she's a piggie poo!

~Elsie loves her brother. She could watch him all day. She wriggles and squirms to get into position so she can see him. She loves to laugh and smile at him and finds his meltdowns espeically entertaining! I'm pretty sure that is what brought on her first giggle!

*Side note: Cash LOVES his sissy as well. He is always looking out for her. Gets VERY nervous when someone else is holding her and tells me all the time how he "loves his sissy". Today he even said
"I Looooooooooooove sissys blue eyes" (sweet boy)

~She loves to watch the ceiling fan and especially likes to look at it, and other things, THROUGH the mirror... that really cracks her up! =)

~Elsie also loves to be outside! we lounge in the shade of the big trees while Cash plays in the dirt with his trucks. It's a good life! <3

We are SO very blessed to have her and can't imagine our life without her!!!!

(Cash was 9lbs 3.5 oz and 23 inches at one month!)

Cash had a big day today as well, he got to go to the Machias fire station to visit with my cousin Andy. He had so much fun taking a tour and driving the engines!!!

Oh and guess who got a BIG BOY haircut!!! =)
