Our girl turned 5 months old on Easter Sunday!! Life with her just keeps getting better & better! Ellie’s 5th month included lots of squealing & laughing, reaching for things, touching Mama & Daddy’s faces, smiling at Daddy, reading with Mama, rolling from her back to her tummy, going to church, seeing new places, & meeting new friends! Some of our favorite moments this month were our trip to Tennessee/the Memphis Zoo, Gran getting to hold Ellie for the first time, & Ellie’s first Sunday at church!

Cheering on Aunt Kels as she ran her half marathon!!

We spent a Sunday afternoon with our dear friends, the Baxters! I did a photoshoot for them, & Anja & I even got some pictures of us with our girls. LOVE being girl moms together!!

We had so much fun on our road trip to Tennessee & Ellie’s first trip to the Memphis Zoo!!

Ellie with 3 of her cousins – Jackson, Rowan, & Robert (missing Anna Claire!)

Ellie loved sitting with her Papaw for her first BBQ experience!

Somebody was worn out at the end of the day, but we had so much fun with our family!!

Wearing her Easter outfits from her GiGi!

Our first day trying cereal! (I promise she did not eat that much, she took like 3 bites haha!) Please notice her little hand clasp – the cutest!

We had lunch at Meme & Poppa’s one day during Dyl’s spring break!

Dancing with Daddy, then looking for Daddy when it was time to eat…

We always have fun when Aunt Kels comes over!

Wearing purple & gold for to watch an LSU baseball game with Mama…

…then changed into orange & white to watch a Tennessee basketball game with Daddy!

I had to get some play time in with my girl before I left for my first wedding back after maternity leave AND it was my first night away from Ellie ever. I missed her so much!

But we spent that entire Sunday afternoon snuggling & watching Finding Nemo…the best!

I found this Easter outfit at TJ Maxx, so of COURSE we had to do a photoshoot!! Some of my favorite pictures of Ellie ever!

Ellie’s first time at one of our fave restaurants – Trace Grill! She started enjoying her cereal after a few days of trying it!

A fun Friday afternoon of running errands with Mama!

A day we had prayed for – Gran FINALLY got to hold Ellie, her first great-grandchild. A picture of the Lord’s faithfulness!

My mom had brought one of my favorite childhood books that Gran used to read to me so that she could read it to Ellie…the sweetest.

Another answered prayer…Ellie’s first Sunday at church on Palm Sunday!!

Love our best friends Karleigh & Stella!

This girl…always giving us the best looks haha!

Making faces at Mama when Daddy wasn’t looking!

We had such a fun Saturday before Easter at McClain with some of our friends & family!

SO thankful we had such gorgeous weather for Easter weekend! We spent a lot of time outside & it was the best!

We ended Ellie’s 5th month with her first Easter!!
