Multitasking: Tummy Time & a mini photo shoot

Eloise is already taking after her Mommy when it comes to multitasking.  Earlier this week, we did a mini photo shoot for her Baptism invitations while doing some tummy time.  

Here are some of my favorites:
Let's just say that Piper was acting as my assistant for this photo shoot... 
Piper: "Listen kid, just smile at your Mommy and then we can all go back to laying on the couch."

Sunday Funday

This past Sunday Eloise visited Sonny Acres Farms with some of her friends and got to experience one of Mom's favorite traditions for Fall.  We were joined by the Mary & Cole Shein, the Flores Family, and the Maxey Family.  Next time, I will take more pictures!

Eloise lasted almost 2 hours at Sonny Acres and then we went home to eat & rest up for a special visit we had planned for the afternoon...

After much anticipation, Great Grandma Marie finally got to meet our sweet little Eloise!

Animal Kingdom

I've realized that I have developed numerous animal themed nicknames for Eloise.  
It's like Animal Kingdom over here...

  • Squeaky Mouse has the hiccups
  • Piggy burps really loud
  • Little bird perches and looks over my shoulder
  • Hungry Puppy when she is getting ready to nurse
  • Piggy snorts when she is getting hungry 
  • Snuggle Bunny loves to be swaddled and cuddled 
  • Froggie legs kick around when being carried into the bath tub

It's so exhausting being this cute.

Highlights from this week:
Aunt Patti & Uncle Dan came all the way from California to visit Eloise
 Hanging out in the MamaRoo
 Getting some love from Auntie Laura

Weight: 11 lbs
Height: 21.25 inches

Eloise meet Sasha - she is your BFF.

Eloise finally got to meet her BFF Sasha Rae Thakur!  

This Monday, we had a Ladies Lunch with Sasha, her mom Sarah, Aunt Anita, & Aunt Nicole.  
If these little girls only knew how badly their mommies wanted them...
I like to think that they are having a serious conversation here and Eloise is listing out the reasons that she is going to vote for Romney, "Reason #1, my Dad told me I have to."
