7 Months

My mind is having trouble wrapping itself around the fact that Eliza is really seven months old.  I just can't believe it.  Where did my teeny little newborn go?  When did she grow to be such a big girl?!?!  It happened so fast.  And yet, in so many ways it feels like she's been with us forever.  It's weird, and hard to describe, I guess...

Eliza is a B.U.S.Y. seven-month-old.  BUSY!  She is such a little mover, she doesn't sit still anymore except when she is asleep.  Seriously!  She's not even crawling yet - we are sooo in for it when she starts to crawl.

Her beautiful, sweet little personality is coming out and I think this girl is going to be a real sweetie (well, she's already a real sweetie... :).  She is a lovey, wonderfully happy girl.  She smiles sooo big when she sees me or her daddy, or her grandma or grandpa (or, really, at most people who smile at her!); it is heart-melting.  I feel so lucky to have her in my life.  I count my blessings every day that she is with us and that she is healthy.  It still kind of blows my mind that she is here, that *I* have a daughter.

Eliza, you are my world!  Being your mama is what I was made to do; I have never felt more at peace or more sure of my place in this life.  I love you!

oh yeah, I've got a mover on my hands as well. He never stays still and constantly needs to be stimulated! Yikes!
