elliot weekly: week 4

she was seriously guarding that pacifier!!

what we've been up to this week:

Tummy Time: Elliot has been racking up some serious tummy time. She makes the funniest noises and is already trying to scoot around and reach for items on the play mat. Huge shout-out to Laura for picking out such a fun mat!

Easter: Christ is risen, Christ is risen indeed! Josh and I made it back to church this past weekend and the timing couldn't have been more perfect. Elliot was so good during the service and it was beyond good to be back with our church family! It may have been a little bit ambitious to take a three week old to church, but it was so, so, so good to celebrate Jesus this year. He is the foundation for our marriage and family and I was so glad to share that with Elliot. After church, we rode up the mountain to spend the afternoon with Josh's extended family to celebrate Easter and Grandma's 83rd birthday. We managed to get a picture of the three of us (don't have too many of those!) and a four generation picture (Grandma, Steve, Josh and Elliot.)

Growing like a weed! Elliot is finally fitting into some of her smaller 0-3 month clothes. Its exciting to finally put her into something other than the white tshirt from the hospital! Thanks Chelsea for the super cute onesie; when in doubt put a bird on it, right?!

Walks, Walks, Walks: Elliot has cashed in some serous time in her jogger stroller. Our neighborhood isn't that great for walking. So, we've been heading over to Elizabeth's (and Hef's!) neighborhood for our walks. There are tons of routes and lots of shade, what a perfect combination! Also need to give Aunt Lauren a shout-out for the BOB stroller; it is a lifesaver! You can't tell in this picture, but Elliot is wearing a "I love my Aunt" shirt.
catching up with Elizabeth after a walk.
she loves Elizabeth--look how peaceful she looks!

Belly Button: Elliot's umbilical cord finally fell off on Tuesday. The blog-world said that it should only take 10-15 days to fall off....but our little babe held on to hers for 25 days. I guess she was just too attached to it. bahaha. Get it? Attached?!

ok, i know the picture is seriously nasty
but i had to share what i have had to look at the the last four weeks
sooooo glad this is gone!

yay for elliot being four weeks old today!
we love you!!
