It has been one busy month! Josh and I took a week long vacation to Greece in September and Ella spent the week with Grandma and Grandpa Saubers. They all had a wonderful time other than Ella getting Hand, Foot, Mouth Disease and breaking out head to toe in a rash. After finally getting better she got an ear infection and bronchitis. It's been a long couple of weeks for our poor baby and can't wait for her to get fully healthy again!
Ella had her 9 month doctor visit yesterday and is now 20 lbs, 11oz (90%) and 28 3/4 inches (85%). She's a healthy girl! She has two teeth on the bottom and the doctor said 4 more are starting to come through. She is now able to eat all three stages of baby food and we can start her on table food too. We tried giving her a piece of cooked carrot last night and she couldnt' figure out how to chew it. So after playing with it in her mouth for like 15 minutes she spit it out haha. We will start working on that going forward.
Ella is now saying Mama and Dada from time to time, has learned to give high fives, and wave. She's walking great with her walker and if we are holding her hands, but hasn't really tried standing on her own yet. She's getting there, and fast!
