This week has been interesting and exciting, partly due to the holiday smack dab in the middle of the week, but mostly because of all the fun stuff going on. I went back to work this week, which was better than I expected. The build up was worse than the actuality. If I would have had to go five days straight though, I think it would have been incredibly difficult. It was great having the holiday in the middle of the week and it’s wonderful that my boss agreed to allow me to work from home two days a week! I honestly think that’s going to make such a difference and help me ease back into the swing of things.
Ellie’s been eating solids now for a little over a week and she’s really starting to get the hang of it. She’s had rice cereal, sweet potatoes and squash. She eats the whole packet of baby food every time. She’s eating a pack of baby food and then some rice cereal every day on top of her milk. Here is an updated video showing her improvement:
We had a great Fourth of July, going for a run in the morning, visiting with Elai, Jon and Miri, and then spending the evening at The Thompson’s. Here’s a pic of Ellie playing outside at Terry and Molly’s:
We’ve also been working on helping Ellie sleep through the night, trying something called the No Cry Sleep Solution. We’ll let you know in a week or so if it’s working or not.
Ellie’s nanny, Diana, took Ellie to the park today for a play date with a friend of hers that nanny’s a 7 month old boy named Hank. We love the interaction with other babes!
Lastly, here’s a video of Ellie doing tummy time on her new mat. She’s trying really hard to lift up her bum and push up on her arms. Once she gets the hang of it, we have a feeling we’re in trouble; she already wants to be on the go all the time!
