Ella went to the doctor yesterday for her second ear infection (poor girl!). She now weighs 17lbs, 11oz at 5 1/2 months. We take her back for her 6 month appointment soon and will see how tall she has gotten. She is already too tall for 6 month pants.
Ella has learned a lot over the past few weeks. She is really sitting up well on her own now, and can take baths without the little tub insert. After watching Daddy jump a few times, she learned what the jumper was really for and went crazy this weekend jumping around!
She has been eating some solid food every night now. She has tried rice cereal, oatmeal, green beans, sweet potatoes, bananas, and squash. The bananas didn't do so well with her belly, but we made some fresh green beans and sweet potatoes with our baby food maker. Sweet potatoes were a hit.....green beans, not so much! She kept trying them over and over agian and making the best faces! We got a great video on this and I'm sure she will love to see it when she's older!
Grandma and Grandpa Saubers came to visit last weekend and we all had a great time hanging out at the pool and playing around the house. They also did some fingerpainting together. We are hoping they come back to visit again soon!
