August 22, 2012

It has been a long couple of weeks...Ella had two visits to the ER within three days and was finally diagnosed with Salmonella.  We aren't exactly sure how she got it, but so thankful she is almost 100% again.  It was a very scary week. 

During the week that she was so incredibly sick, Ella did the unthinkable, she just got up and started crawling!  She's now 7 1/2 months old and moving all over the place.  She still likes to stand as much as possible, so she crawls to the closest thing she can use to pull herself up.  She is such a strong little girl :) 

Ella also moved up to the next class at daycare and is now with kids ages 6 months - a year old.  The teacher today told me that she is actually the youngest in the class right now and is surpassing a lot of the other kids with how much she pulls herself up and stands.  That's our little rockstar!!!

August 10, 2012

Ella is growing like a weed!!!  She is getting so big and so close to crawling.  She's now eating only 4 meals a day (trying to transition her to a regular 3 meals per day for later) and eats solids 3 times a day.  She is now eating all of the stage 2 foods, and seems to like everything except for her Mama's cooking :)

She is close to crawling, but just seems too lazy!  She is constantly going to crawl position and then right back into sitting up.  If she really wants something, she now gets to crawl position so she can launch herself towards it.  She doesn't care if she face plants, just as long as she gets close!  Josh and I think she will skip crawling altogether and one day just get up and walk. 

She is already 7 months old and time has flown by.  I'll have to post some more recent pictures soon.
