Five Months

Ellie turned five months old this week. Sometimes I can’t believe the time has gone by so fast, and sometimes it feels as if it’s been about eight years. We took her to the doctor today. Another clean bill of health. She weighs an astounding 17 pounds, 3 ounces and is a phenomenal 25.5 inches long.

Eleanor’s biggest new achievement is that she sits up all on her own! Observe:

Speaking of new pictures, I have started the Month 6 gallery. Some great shots in there already. Please enjoy.

At the moment, we are packing up to go to Nova Scotia for two weeks. Thus, updates here may be a little spotty for a while. But we should have plenty of great pics and video when we return! Including some of Ellie with her Great-Grandma Sylvia who has not met her yet.

It’s a big trip and it’s taken a lot of preparation to get Ellie ready to go. We’re a little anxious about the 8 – 9 hour drive tomorrow, but we’ll get through it somehow. My parents managed to do it year after year for decades.
