Elsie turned 33 weeks old on Tuesday. You will notice the long sleeves - it has gotten cold here in Chicago! For Elsie and Mom, this is a lot of fun, since we get to buy more Elsie clothes!
Elsie has been working her way into more table foods. Both at home and at school, she tries a few things every day. You will see below that our attempt at peas and carrots did not go over so well - we had to revert back to jarred baby food for this meal. She is eating sweet potatoes, whole grain bagels and rice cakes, bananas, carrots, beans, cheerios, puffs, peaches, and cheese. She enjoys water a lot, too - just like mom!
We went to the pumpkin patch last weekend with our friends, Jill and Scott. We all had a lot of fun enjoying a hayride, some apple cider, and donuts! Elsie even grabbed a donut piece out of my hand and LOVED it!
It is sometimes hard to keep Elsie entertained these days - even with all of my toy shopping at garage sales. Sometimes a simple spatula is all she needs!
Elsie still really enjoys standing! She loves to stand now at her table of blocks or walk around with us holding her hands. She tries to chase the cats, but is still a little slow. Here is a video of Elsie with her blocks.
Elsie is having a lot of fun at school. Here are a couple cute pictures from Mrs. Brown and the weekly newsletter.
