sweet hand me down overalls from a friend!
He BEGGED to have a sleepover with her. We compromised with a short snuggle before bed. I told him that she still had to sleep in a crib because she might fall out and he said, "I'll hold onto her!"
Cora, you want to touch (and eat) all the books we're reading.
You are so good at sitting up and you really enjoy exploring and playing.
If you're on a hard floor you can scoot backwards while you're sitting. This morning you managed to scoot yourself right under your crib and you really weren't sure what to think of that! :)
You look so pretty and Christmas-y in your red coat from Aunt Kim!
Your first Thanksgiving!! You had turkey and dairy free mashed potatoes and lamb. Yum!
I love that our friends love you too!
You got TONS of attention from your Grandma and Grandad, aunts, uncles and many cousins!
You went on your first trip on the incline in Pittsburgh.
fun new outfit from Mrs. Debi!
getting your very first Christmas tree!
decked out in your Steelers gear (even though you were sleeping with Daddy instead of watching the game)
You do love your Mama and I love you! We are glad you are turning out to be somewhat of a snuggle bug.
You really love to "play trains" with brother or use pieces of track as teethers.
Cutie overall girl! Daddy and I both thought you looked adorable but people did keep calling you "he" all day. :(
You took your first trip to Pittsburgh this month for Thanksgiving!!
fun times with Grandma
and laughing with Aunt Sarah!
You have got the cutest laugh going on both your out loud laugh and your sucking air through your nose and teeth laugh. Your brother can imitate it really well.

I LOVE how much you two love each other! It never fails to warm my heart!!
another airplane ride! You are a good traveler.
hanging out with Daddy in your strawberry pjs
wearing a shirt that brother wore
You love "Hedgie"
Brother begged for you to get to play in his flour sensory bin with him so I let you for a little bit. You two had a blast (and made a huge mess!)
Happy Eight Months Sweet Girl. We all love you so very much!!

my friend Betty gave us this teapot at our wedding and we used it in the decorations
I think it looks pretty cute dressed up for Christmas with non-traditional colors.
Do you use colors other than red and green in your Christmas decorating? I'd love to hear about it or better yet see pictures.

Cora in Bible class with one of our favorite teachers - our picture with our other fun teacher came out all fuzzy :(
My sweet friend Julie often matches her family's clothes for Sundays as does my friend Ashley. I like it and admire it but am not "together" enough for all that. Today after we got to church I realized that David and I coordinated really well! Yea!
Our small group is studying Mere Christianity. I hadn't read the chapter yet but found myself "cramming" when I went out to nurse Cora during church. :)

Sweet Baby Girl! It's a little hard for Mama to believe that we're at 7 months already! That seems so big! Six months and under seems baby baby and now you're a big seven months and that seems like you're practically a big girl! Mama's not quite ready.
We enjoyed a wonderful visit from Aunt Kim and Sweetie and you got to snuggle with Aunt Kim and take a nap in the ergo. Getting you in the ergo is a great way to get you calm and one of the only ways to get you to sleep not in your bed.
You continue to eat solids and that is fun (and messy!) You ate pizza (minus the cheese) with Brother and I one night and it was so crazy to later be smelling pepperoni on your breath!
Mama dressed you up in a crazy over the top outfit and you were pretty cute but I don't know that we'll be wearing this exact ensemble again. :)
You had your first "sleepover" this month when Mama went to Prayer Sisters one night and you tagged along and fell asleep on the way there. We put you in your friend Elizabeth's room and she slept in her crib in there while you slept in your carrier until it was time for us to leave. I'm sure many more sleepovers are in our future and I'll bet that will be the calmest one!
You constantly have things in your mouth! You are so curious and love exploring!
You took your first big girl bath at Nana and Ducca's. Brother loves having you take a bath with him. You really enjoy sitting up in the bath and playing with the water and checking everything out.
We went to Old Colorado City for the Giant Pumpkin Contest one Saturday and enjoyed a family day out and about. We ate lunch at a restaurant and you CHOWED down on the steak. A couple nights later we went to Pei Wei and I couldn't believe how you devoured some of the chicken I gave you!
We also enjoyed a visit to the book mobile!
Three or four times in one week people called you "he" and Mama got tired of it so I made sure you were wearing pink and ruffles.
You really, really enjoy books and always try to grab them when we're reading. You were happy someone finally let you get your hands on one. You also like hanging out with your Daddy.
trying out spaghetti!
love these baby feet!
sweet snuggle bug!
you love your cousin Caleb and he loves you!
munching on bell pepper at Mueller State Parksnuggling with Daddy in the hammock
Steelers game day
cups are great airplane entertainment!
Yea for you and Mrs. Marla getting to meet each other!!
When in Texas . . .
We had so much fun with Mrs. Jenny and you got to show off the dress she sent you before you were even born!
Another "while in Texas . . . " you DEVOURED refried beans and loved them!!!
happy girl at the pumpkin patch!
When I found out we were going to be in Texas in October I realized that I could take you guys back to my very most favorite pumpkin farm. Our family has a lot of history there.
This completely exemplifies y'all's relationship and I am so very thankful!
So, so thankful that we got to meet our friends at the pumpkin patch! It was truly a very special night!
eating hay just like your brother did
on the hayride!
You glommed my shoulder and got me all drooley!
Mama took your picture in the baby punkin bin like Mrs. Dina does with her daughter. :)
When we got to the pumpkin patch I knew you were my daughter! You started squealing with excitement over and over. I absolutely loved it!
Miss Jenni sent you guys Halloween jammies!! Soo cute!!
You are on the floor playing with Brother so much more these days! He LOVES to make you laugh. It is really so much fun!!
Happy Seven Months, Cora Elise!!
We love you, Sweet Baby Girl!
