This week, Ellie has been a bit more predictable and happier, which has made working and taking care of her at the same time a little easier. She just loves to smile, especially when she wakes up.
To celebrate Ellie making it to 2 months, Martina and I went to have some dinner and a glass of wine. Without her.
Ok, so it might not have been with the express intention of celebrating this milestone, but it happened to fall on the same day, so we can at least pretend that we’re going out for a reason other than to enjoy some time without her!
In all seriousness though, this is the first time that Martina and I are going on a date together since we had Ellie. Oma was kind enough to look after her, now that she’s taking bottles with ease. So we’re taking advantage of it and going to enjoy dinner and a few glasses (bottles) of wine together.
We did it! We survived for two full months. And to show for it, Ellie is about 2-3 lbs heavier, smiley, giggly and has started to grow in her hair.
I’ve grown quite attached to my little Ellie and I love waking up with her and coming home to her after work. She the bestest.
Height: 23.5in (89th percentile)
Weight: 10lbs 14oz (37th percentile)
Head circumference: 15.67in (89th percentile)
It took us a while to even get a photo like this, but here are Ellie’s tiny fingers wrapped around my index finger.
I just got scared because I thought that was a tornado. I don’t even have time to deal with a tornado right now.
My favorite time of day is whenever Ellie has just woken up or she has just been fed, and she’s in a dozy, comatose mood and she just wants to snuggle right up to you.
Ellie’s been practicing her smiling and babbling in the past week and she’s getting good! Continue reading “Smiling and babbling [VIDEO]”
Ellie has started smiling a lot at people she recognises this past week and she’s got a great smile.
Here’s a selection of photos from the last week or two
I swear that this was not posed, but Ellie really likes to put her hands by her ears (like she’s on the phone), or behind her head. She’ll be heading to the beach before we know it.
