    Eisley (5 months)

    Growing // Eisley has gone from our largest newborn (over 9 pounds!) to being our smallest infant. But she’s not actually small in the 85th percentile; she’s just a few ounces shy of Talitha’s weight at this age and a few POUNDS less than Zianne, who was super chubby. At five months and one week, Eisley was weighing in at 17 pounds, 11 ounces. She is still in 9 month clothing.
    Eating // We’ve given Eisley a spoonfuls of sweet potatoes and rice cereal a few times now. We aren’t doing solids consistently yet, just dabbling in them for fun.
    Sleeping // Eisley typically takes a long afternoon nap from 2-4pm (and sometimes even longer). However, she has started waking up early again. She is still sleeping in our room, and I usually hear her kicking in her bed by 6:30am. Thankfully, she is perfectly content to doze and suck her thumb for another hour or so, allowing me to have a quiet time and get Z ready for school before I feed her. 
    Doing // Eisley is officially sitting in her booster seat and rolling all over the floor. She smiles on command and seems to respond to her name. She is reaching and grabbing items selectively, and of course, chewing on any toy she can get her hands on. She can’t wait to sit on her own. She will crunch her little abs and try to sit up from a reclined position.
    Loving // Kicking water over the sides of the bathtub, being held by pretty much anyone, chewing on dolls, eating solids, snuggling with mom in bed for morning and nighttime feedings

    Dislikes // When she rolls over onto her stomach in her crib during nap time and wakes herself up

    Milestones // Retiring the Solly wrap, the play mat, and swaddles. Transitioning to a sleep sack. Rolling both directions with ease. 

    Nicknames // Pretty Lady, Eisley Girl

    Liking this church trend

    A study guide for Jen Wilkin’s Women in the Word

    I love these thin notebooks because I can keep them IN my Bible to mark the page I’m currently studying…

    I don’t agree with this entire article, but I do think the church needs to consider how it can engage with feminism with the hope of the Gospel…

    You know I can’t help reading about the NLF Anthem “scandal” from the perspective of a military veteran-turned-attorney (and an opinion article from one of the players who started the protest)…

    Pleione is one of my favorite brands for cute, affordable tops… (ruffles, sweatshirt, stripes)

    A depressing article about old age in America
