Ellie Grace | 8 Month Update

Ellie Grace | 8 Month Update

This update it comin' to ya late, things have been so BUSY around here. I hate using that word "busy." But, we've been in a transition period since May + are finally starting to get into our groove, so I hope I can be more on top of it now (wishful thinking maybe?).

Anyways, baby girl is growing like a WEED. Seriously, not okay with how fast this year is going. It makes me so sad to think that my last baby is turning one in just FOUR months. Y'all...that's a blink of an eye.

She's learning new things everyday, tries to keep up with her brothers (bless her heart) + has the goofiest personality. I just love her to bits.


Happy to report that we are still nursing on demand! I feel so grateful to be able to breastfeed her. She's also discovered the word of "real" food + she's definitely my child. She loves fruit, bread + mac n cheese. She's even drank water out of a big girl cup with a straw. SLOW DOWN.


She still hasn't slept through the night. Again, my child. She much prefers to be up late into the night. Her + Cooper are two peas in a pod in that area. It sorta works out though, because it turns into their special time. When their older brothers are sleeping soundly + they get special cuddles/attention from mama + daddy. We've dropped the bed to the floor, deconstructed the crib + have our own little family bed situation goin' on. We LOVE it. I'll love it even more, when our new mattress gets here from Bear Mattress. Stay tuned on a review of that!


We were SO late to her 6 month appointment, but we finally got her in last month. Here's where she was then!

Weight: 17lbs 1.7oz

Height: 26.25 in

I can't wait to see what this next month brings us! Thanks for stopping by! Until next time!
