ellie girl, funny story for you -- in my original plan, i thought we'd be able to take basically the same photos of you each month for your first year of life -- that was clearly before i met six month old you! you, understandably, have no interest (even with two of us spotting you) in laying around on the ottoman. you want to crawl, dive, sit, lean forward & generally be a girl on the move!! what a parenting rookie i am.
so, these photos are my favorite so far & here's why: they are SO you -- all your faces & expressions, your enthusiasm and kind soul. our days together are nonstop & i absolutely love it. keeping growing & exploring sweet girl -- the world is waiting on you. we love you so, so much, mama & daddy
