Ellie turned 10 months old on Saturday!! What a BIG month it’s been for our girl! She’s grown more than ever, & it’s been so bittersweet! Thankfully every single day just gets more & more fun! Ellie’s 10th month included crawling everywhere, feeling different textures, exploring every room in our house, mimicking sounds, taking naps & sleeping through the night, cuddling with Mama & Daddy, & cheering on Daddy at his football games!! We love our sweet, hilarious, joyful girl!! A few of our favorite moments this month were Ellie crawling for the first time AND going from crawling on her belly to crawling on all fours, starting Ellie’s first football season getting to watch her Daddy coach, finding the stairs (baby gates are up now ha!), spending wedding Saturdays with Daddy, going on lots of morning walks with Mama, & the first college football Saturday of the season!

She was sitting on the floor beside her chair & 10 seconds later I found her like this…

Ellie LOVES playing with her brother, Zeke! They are so cute together!!

Ellie’s first time watching her Daddy coach at the scrimmage to kickoff the season…dream come true!!

She has no idea how much football is in her future haha!

Celebrating our bestie Stella’s 2nd birthday along with our friend Magnolia! Love this girl gang!!

Checking out Mama’s TJ Maxx finds & wondering why she didn’t get to join ha!

I LOVE finding her sleeping like this…

I bought this little outfit for her before she was born…why does she look GROWN?!

Dyl’s first day of school – annual “back to school” photo with Zeke (Ellie was still asleep ha!)

She has started kissing us and it’s the best thing ever (she opens her mouth like this every time which is hilarious!)

There is never a moment when toys aren’t everywhere!!

Our last pool time of the summer! She thought it was hilarious that Zeke was drinking the water!

Saturday morning playtime with our girl!!

She cracks us up drinking out of her sippy cup like this!

Yay for date night!!!

Brushing her teeth with Daddy…

Pool time with Nae – Ellie’s just living her best life ha!

ALWAYS on the move!! And if she’s not on the move, she wants to be in my lap!

Even though the game was out of town, Ellie got to watch her Daddy coach in his first varsity game thanks to Nae & the livestream! SO PRECIOUS!

I LOVE getting photos from Dyl of Ellie when I’m at weddings! He sent me this & said “I took Ellie to her first car show!” Seriously the cutest!! And of course they had to make a visit to the library to check out more books!

Sunday snuggles with Daddy!

She found our 90’s DVD collection…

Ellie loves crawling around with this ball in her hand! It’s so cute!

Our crazy girl!

She found the stairs…baby gates are up now ha!

Daddy’s first JV game – so proud of our head coach!

She was delirious after staying up late for the game…we love our funny girl!

A trip to Sam’s = a new book of course!

We’ve successfully taught her to relax haha! Ellie loves snuggling up in a blanket just like her Mama!

She found the windows & LOVES pulling open the curtains & standing up on the window sill!

Ready to cheer on the Vols!! I never thought I’d be dressing my child in orange & white…oh how life changes!

Another game, another outfit…

She always hugs her Daddy when she gets to see him after games – it’s the best!

Ready for Friday night lights!!

We got to see Daddy before Friday night’s game – yay!

SO proud of him always but it’s fun winning 48-0!

Ready to cheer on the Tigers (and hoping game 1 isn’t a foreshadowing of the rest of the season…)

10 months old!! (someone found her letterboard letters this month & did not want to put them down haha!)

Y’all…we are in trouble!!
