Ellie turned 7 months old last week!! Time continues to fly, but life with her only gets better & better! We are LOVING this stage – she’s so much fun & just the sweetest. Ellie’s 7th month included lots of giggling, playing with Mama & Daddy, trying to grab everything in sight, rolling around, sitting up all by herself, & splashing in her pool & bathtub! A few of our favorite moments this month were celebrating Daddy being home for the summer with a lunch date to Shaggy’s, Ellie’s first trip to the library, my first Mother’s Day, Ellie trying & loving swimming pools, & our Memorial Day weekend trip to the lake/Ellie’s first time on a boat! It was a full month with lots of sweet memories made!

How Ellie felt about getting her 6 month shots, followed by how she felt about them being over! She really does so well with shots – we are grateful.

Lunch date with Daddy at Shaggy’s – school’s out for summer which means Daddy is home (with the exception of summer football workouts of course!)

Ellie’s first trip to the library! We already have so many books, but we are loving checking out new ones every few weeks. We obviously want her to LOVE to read!!

Trying out her chair from Aunt Kels – so cute! Yay for summer!

Our first Mother’s Day together…forever thankful she made me a Mama! After church, we went to lunch at my favorite place, Keifer’s. Then had dinner with Nae (my mom)!

Our summer uniform… haha!

Ready for lunch!!

She’s the sweetest!!

Our crazy girl – always making the best silly faces!

We went on a family walk to support Sozo Children’s Run for a Reason 5K!

Saturday morning breakfast on the deck – in full on conversation with Daddy!

Our first pool party & sno-cone – such a fun day!!

Saturdays with her are my favorite!

She loves splashing in her pool – the cutest!

Hanging with Daddy after church!

“Movie day” on the couch with Mama – teaching her how to relax haha!

We had to try on our Memorial Day outfit from our cousin Anna Claire & her mom Jenn! Wearing red & blue to support our cousins Jacob’s baseball team when they played in their sub-state tournament!

She is a Daddy’s girl & I am so glad!!

Ellie’s first time going swimming in Nae’s neighborhood pool!

Still loving bath time of course…surely she thinks that the swimming pool is just a massive bathtub haha

Family breakfast date at Primo’s!

We are grateful that we got to celebrate our Gran’s amazing life after she passed away a few weeks ago. I will ALWAYS be thankful that she got to meet & hold Ellie – a gift I will cherish forever.

Ellie’s first time on her Papaw & GiGi’s boat! We had such a fun Memorial Day lake weekend!!

Yes we bought matching Old Navy flag shirts just like our families did when we were growing up (Ellie’s matching onesie had already gotten food on it of course before we took these pictures, but we plan to match again for the 4th!)

Celebrating Aunt Katie’s birthday!!

We LOVE our Otteroo – it’s helped Ellie get used to being in the water & she enjoys it so much!!

More pool time – the best!!

This girl y’all – she is a MESS!!

Wearing our Magnolia onesie from our Aunt Karleigh & Aunt Alex!! Hanging out with our friends Stella & Magnolia – we love our girl gang!

7 months old!!!

Y’all – I get so emotional when I look at these photos! She’s the happiest most joyful baby girl!! (most of the time – of course she has her moments like we all do haha!)
