We woke up Christmas morning to find that we all had been good boys and girls...Santa made a stop and left some goodies :) After our annual Christmas breakfast, we loaded up, said our goodbyes, and made our way south to good old Waco. Memmie was quite thrilled to see little Elly and loaded her up with MORE goodies! Can I re-do my Christmas letter?
We would REALLY like for you to bring us an extra 1,000 sq. ft for our house. We have been
a good mommy, daddy and baby girl.
Christmas Eve with Nana
"Mommy! Look what Santa left me...my very own chair!"
Elly was more interested in the ribbon than she was with the gifts!

Mommy's little lady

We sure have gotten every drop of money out of Elly's Bumbo chair. We would stick the tray on it and set her in the middle of the dining room table, which worked as the perfect makeshift highchair! In our tiny house, space is cherished and we definitely don't have room for one of those big ole' things! As I watched Elly perform her new talent, flinging her torso forward and backward to scoot the Bumbo across the table, I knew it was time to graduate to a "big girl" chair. She was quite intrigued and still can't get enough of it! Well...as long as it has food on the tray :-)

"Hey Dad! I know you keep telling me to look at the camera, but I can't take my eyes off YOU!"
Thinking about it...

Last week, the Roebuck household had a little visitor. No exaggeration on the "little" part...We were doggy sitting for sweet little, 3 lb. Zoe! Otherwise known as Sampson's girlfriend :) I was trying to get a video of Elly crawling and caught this instead...Zoe didn't know WHAT to think!

Bye, bye swing!!!
In honor of mom being right AND Elly graduating from her swing, we decided to give the Biter Biscuits a try. The girl LOVES food and the biscuits were no exception. She was a little unsure when she first put it in her mouth. That quickly changed as it got a little messy! She would pull it out of her mouth, hold it up in the air and look at it with shear joy! I will have the video camera ready the next time :)
Doesn't she look like she's shaking with excitement?!

Yesterday we did Elly's little 8 month photo shoot. I can't believe how big she is getting. She has officially started to do the "army crawl" (which I love to watch!). She is intrigued with the sound of smacking her hands on the hardwoods, so she will scoot, scoot, scoot to get off the rug to the floors. Once she makes it there, she looks to me to join in on the fun and smack my hands too! We have also started the bedtime story routine. When we would read books before, all she wanted to do was put it in her mouth. She now will look at and touch the pictures and "help" me turn the pages. Don't get me wrong, she still tries to eat it, but seems to enjoy the looking and listening part just as much! I can't wait for next month and Ellyson's 9 month checkup! I'm dying to know how long she is and how much our little connoisseur of food weighs ;)
Cheeeeese! Pretty girl!
Of course we had to get a couple "yelling" pictures!

Debi loving on little Elly. The neighbor's dog made it quite difficult to get the attention of little one :)
For some reason, whenever my mom emails pictures, they come out half the size...can you please get on that Nana. We need to see as much of Elly's face as possible!

We made it home for a quick nap, then got ready for the candy hungry, ghosts and goblins. We snagged a few pictures of the pink poodle, swapped it out for comfy Halloween pj's and enjoyed the night!
Rah, Rah TCU!
This is Elly's "but Nana...I REALLY want it!" face. Uh oh Nana...how will you resist it?!
It really is scary, how cute she is :)
What's the best part about the morning after Halloween? Chocolate for breakfast!

I'm just chillin' in my crib
Hmmm...which one of you will go first? That new TOOTH I have will make it easier to rip you all apart!
**You read right...I found Elly's first tooth this morning (bottom left)! She has been a little stinker the past few days and we had a feeling that a tooth may be making an appearance :)

How do I best go about getting this in my mouth? I bet it tastes like the flu AND cold virus all rolled into one!
