Update: Eleanor is Still Cute

Here are a few shots of the last two weeks with Eleanor. She keeps us endlessly entertained.

Some of her new tricks are:

-Sticking out her tongue like a little snake when we ask her to. (Or maybe an iguana, she inherited her dad's freakishly long tongue. No jokes please.)
-Climbing on everything.
-Opening cupboards and taking out what's inside.
-Pulling herself up to everything, by everything (Including my hair, which is why I cut it last night, more on that later.)
-Pulling all of the diapers out of the basket.
-Playing peek-a-boo.
-Picking up every tiny thing she sees in the carpet to see if it's tasty.
-Crawling away during diaper changes as soon as she is naked.
-Chattering on end when she's sleepy.
-Playing with neighbor kids.
-Playing games with daddy and saying "dadda" whenever she sees Clayton.

I think of thirty things every minute that I want to remember, but never when I am trying to write them down. She is eight months today! However, she just barely got her 6 month immunizations, (because I am awesome) and weighed in at 18 pounds and is 26 inches long. She is in the 50-75% range on everything.
But on to the pictures!!!

Here she is with two of her best friends, Lauren and Jasmine. They all lined up at their baby gate while the moms put the car seats in the car for a trip to the mall. They thought they were so funny. (They were.)
Can three seats fit? Sure. Kinda. Eleanor really enjoyed the novelty of having friends to talk to in the back seat. She often gets bored with just me singing to her from the front. Although I think she is really enjoying this week's cd choice of "Wicked". She sings along with me by going "aaaaahhhhhhh, oooooooaaaaaahhhhh" etc... It's painfully cute. Her favorite song though, by far, is 'Eliza Jane' by Elizabeth Mitchell. She also likes Sigur Ros and Death Cab for Cutie.
Here she is driving the plane at the mall toy area. Giving props to mom's old job.
She loves to play with Clayton's hats. She plays peekaboo with them and sometimes just wears them around until she bonks into something.
Happy baby. Notice her adorable bunny slippers? Thanks Smarts! We love wearing them here in cold Michigan.
Eleanor all dressed up for church with daddy.
I love this picture, you can see her two bottom teeth!
Also- I have to note how cute her little sweater is from cousin Caitlin. She wears it all the time.
An example of naughty Eleanor. Here she is scaling the fireplace hearth. Note the wipes case used as a step? And note the diapers all in a pile after another game of "messy"?
That's ok. Mom plays that game too.

Hey Marianne! I'm so glad you "de-lurked" yourself. I'm always happy to meet a fellow blogger! Who is your friend that knows my friend? I wasn't aware I had any. :)

I was getting worried her cuteness had slipped away since I saw her in July. What a relief to see her even cuter!
