When we went to the dr last Tuesday, they weighed our girl and she has actually gained a little even being sick. She weighs 16.7 lbs. She still loves to eat! She's tried just about every stage 2 veggie and fruit except peas. She loves pears and squash the best though. We also tried peaches again and she likes them. I'm happy about that! I'm still making a lot of her food, but also buying quite a bit. I think now that I'm back to work, I'll buy more. We had to move up a size in onesies, she's now wearing 9 months. The 6 months were too short. I feel like my baby girl is growing up too fast.
Ellie is at such a fun stage right now. She is changing so quickly. It seems like everyday she does something new. She started saying "Dada" about two weeks ago. It's adorable! She also says "Mmmma" when she sees me now. That just started this past week. I love it!
Ellie is crawling. It's just about the cutest thing ever! She almost looks like a frog when she gets going. She started crawling to get the cat and hasn't stopped yet. ha! She loves anything paper. I have some magazines on the bottom of the coffee table and she pulls them off all the time. She's also pulling up on the bottom part of the coffee table. I think we are going to lower her crib this week. I sure don't want her pulling up in there!
She still loves her jumperoo. She goes crazy in that thing! She doesn't care for her bumbo much anymore at all. She can get herself out of it so we just haven't used it lately. I think she just wants to be on the go all the time. She doesn't stay still too much.
We are down to two naps a day. She still takes her morning nap about 9:00 and sleeps for about 1.5 hours. Then she goes down at about 1:00 for 2-3 hours. She's been in bed by 7:00 or 7:30 each night and then I wake her up at 6:30 to get ready to go to the babysitter. I love that she's such a good sleeper! She has been waking up a little in the middle of the night since she's been sick. I just go in and give her the pacie and she's usually right back to sleep.
Ellie has definitely turned into a big time mamma's girl. While I love this, I also don't want her to feel bad when I'm not around. When I leave the room she often cries. When she sees me and is with someone else, she'll reach for me. She is the light of my life and I certainly don't mind that she prefers me right now. I know it won't always be like this so I am soaking it up!
|Barry took these this morning before church.|
|Notice her bare feet? She will not leave shoes or socks on those cute little feet. |
Since it's been over 100 degrees forever now, I just gave up the battle. I don't blame her!
