Sharpen your pencil, Tooth Fairy!
Elizabeth's bottom teeth are starting to come in, so it's no surprise that she is trying to chew everything in sight... She had some chicken for the first time a couple of days ago, and was brave enought to eat several cheerios today. She was able to move them around in her mouth until they were soft enough to swallow. So far she seems to be adjusting well to solids, which is really good, since breastfeeding may soon become a thing of the past.

It's time to take care of business...

Elizabeth and her pals know how to party!
Elizabeth continues to be an energetic baby and loves to get in trouble. At 8 and one half months (corrected) she is now sitting on her own. She is about 16 pounds and is now rolling on her tummy.
She appears to have her own agenda and will only attempt to move if she sees something that she can get into trouble with; wrapping paper is her new motivation. Elizabeth is doing excellent at her speech therapy and is beginning to babble using consonants and making sounds that resemble mama and dada. This is a huge milestone for her.

Happy Birthday Elizabeth! It is hard to believe that Elizabeth is 1 year old. She celebrated her birthday with a huge party and enjoyed every minute.
