7 months

Our sweet Eliza is 8 months in a few days so I thought I'd better do her 7 month post. Time is slipping away so quickly. It felt like yesterday I was still pregnant with her. This month she has learned to clap, say mama, army crawl, sit-up really well in the grocery cart, loves her johnny jump-up, eats solids really well and finally has enough hair that I can put little clips in it! She had her first little cold at the beginning of the month which really got her off her sleep schedule (not to mention her parent's sleep schedule as well). Now we are all getting more sleep. She is becoming more vocal about which toys she wants, what books she wants to read and if she wants to be held or put down. She loves sticking her tongue out and making lots of noises. She is so happy and fun. We love her!

Here is a sneak peek at my kitchen project that is almost done!

Colin and I both took the last week of August off of work to have some family time. It was so nice to be together. We ate out almost everyday. We slept in. We lounged and did lots of fun things to cross off on my summer list.

We took Eliza to the zoo.

We went on a walk in Provo canyon to see Bridal Veil Falls.

We went to the Park City farmer's market. (no pictures)

We went to Swiss Days in Midway, UT.

Laslty we spent Labor Day starting the mini remodel of my kitchen. Phase one; paint cabinets and add knobs and pulls.

Take a look at my old kitchen. Goodbye to the oak!
