Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! We had a ward Trunk-or-Treat on Saturday-- Eliza's first trick-or-treat experience.  She pretty much hated being in her costume, but she looked pretty darn cute in it!

 Eliza was an ear of corn, and Andrew the farmer (even though he looks more like Huck Finn...)
 I know I look like a pink devil kind of thing, but I'm supposed to be a pig.  We're an Iowa Farm!

Happy Halloween!

Getting bigger

 Guess how old Eliza is!
 You got it!

 She's entered the cell phone/remote phase.
And is as cute as ever! 

She is: 
sitting on her own
eating all sorts of food, and discovering how to use a sippy cup
giggling and more ticklish
teething? maybe? is that why she's fussy?
loves playing Peek-a-Boo
loves to look at her picture books
rolls all over the place
calms down almost immediately when we sing "Bingo." I feel like sometimes I start singing that without even thinking about it.
so much fun!

Apple Pickin' Fun

 Andrew's schedule has been kind of crazy this fall, so when he had a day off, we hurried to a near by apple orchard, Wilson's.  It was a pretty, cool night, and we're not quite sure what Eliza thought of it all.  We'll just have to try again next year!

 There were lots of cute pumpkins. Including our little pumpkin, of course.

 See! Andrew was there.

 Trees, trees everywhere, but no apples to eat!

 The ONLY apple we found, and it was on the ground.
We love fall!

Eliza is pretty low on the charts for weight and height, but her head circumference  has consistently been about in the 50th percentile.  (She gets that from her mom and dad.)  So while her 3-6 month clothes may be just right on her, the 3-6 month hats are a little too small. 

I got a little anxious and tried a bigger hat on her.  It fit her! Almost.

 So cute!
 Then it started to slide down...

So instead of fixing the hat for her, we took lots of pictures.  And eventually fixed it.

Bath time

Eliza is loving her bath time lately!

 Her toes are her favorite bath toy.

 Eliza's face of choice.

She is so much fun!

Playing with Dad

Eliza is lucky to have one great Dad. They have a lot of fun together, and he's definitely the most interesting thing in the room when he's there.  

Having fun on a Sunday afternoon.

 One of my absolute favorite things that she does is cross her feet like this. Very lady-like.
Dad wore her out!

6 Months!

 Guess what?
 Eliza is 6 months old! How did that happen?!
 She can sit up!
 Until her head gets too heavy...

 She's still one happy girl.

 She got tired of me taking her picture, so she found a couple of interesting things to play with.  Like the paper.
And the camera.
