April 13, 2012

Ella just got back from her second trip.  Her and Josh went to Kansas for a couple of days to see the family.  She got to meet her aunt Shawna and cousin, Never along with a lot more extended family.  They had a great time and Ella was exhausted when she got home!  She had some real smiles again though when I dropped her off at daycare today.  I think she missed her friends!

We are still waiting for her to roll over, but she looks like she's getting really close.  She gets herself about 70% there and then stops.  Put her on her belly last night though and was shocked at how well she can hold her head and body up now.  I'm going to try and keep working with her this weekend and hopefully it will be soon!

April 7, 2012

Can't believe almost another full month has gone by.  With both of us working full time, it's much harder to keep up with everything.  Every second that I have at home and Ella is still awake, I'm just dying to be with her!  She has been to daycare for two weeks now and absolutely loves it.  She loves all the sitmulation there and seeing all the other babies.  I'm not sure if it is daycare, or just time, but she has learned so much lately.  She is really reaching for all of her toys now to play with, not just put in her mouth.  I'm truly amazed by how much she knows already.

She got another cold her first week at daycare, but we are looking on the bright side that this will just help build her immune system!  She's definitely feeling better this week because she's been talking up a storm!!  The other big thing that's changed lately is that she really loves sucking her thumb now.  Other than if she's really tired or frustrated, she soothes herself all the time with her thumb.  This helps a ton and lets her sleep much longer since she can put herself back to sleep. 

Ella is headed to Kansas in two days to meet a lot more of her family.  I know her and Josh will have a great time, and I'll miss them both so much!!  We figure she will be a world traveller by the end of the year :)
