Recent cuteness

I’ve been a bit lax with getting photos on here lately, so to compensate, here’s a gallery with a bunch of adorable photos for you.

Ellie also had her 15-month checkup and she’s growing nicely. She’s right at 20 lbs (9 kg) and a little over 31 in (79 cm) long.

Ellie’s 9-month picture

Ellie has now been “out” pretty much as long as she was “in” and she is just so much fun! She’s also getting a lot more devious: not sure how many more of these photos I’m going to be able to take with the stickers in shot.

Ellie’s 6-month picture

Today is Christmas Day, which is also Ellie’s 6-month birthday.

Ellie is so much fun these days and Martina and I are enjoying parenting much more than in the first few months. She’s a lot of fun and is developing new skills every week.

Ellie is now rolling over, sitting up without much support, laughing, playing and recognising people and animals quite readily.

Ellie’s 2-month picture

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.

Ready for a fight

Today, Ellie had her one month appointment at the paediatrician, but as she was sitting in the car seat waiting for the doctor to come in, she looked like she was ready to start a fight!

She’s very healthy and well. Her height (22.5in), head circumference (15in) and weight (10lbs) put her in about the 90th percentile for growth, so she’s big and growing nicely.

Week 1 photo roundup

Rather than upload every single photo in a new post and start overwhelming people, I figured I’d hold back a little and collect them into small galleries so that you get a whole bunch of cuteness all at once. So enjoy this little gallery of photos from the past week or so.
