Ellie boom has been on the move now for awhile and has started pulling herself up on things. Once she stands up, she gets a very confused look on her face because she’s not sure what to do. It’s so exciting to see the wheels turn inside her head and crazy to know that she’s taking in every single little thing we do.
Ellie has been sick this week and I’m sick as well. Thankfully Ellie hasn’t been as sick as me! I read online that breast milk commonly has antibodies specific to a mom’s illness and it helps prevent baby from getting as sick as mom. Fascinating stuff! I was fortunate enough to get a nap in today while Brian took Ellie out for a little walk and to run an errand or two. When they got back we set up the new baby fence and Ellie could just play and play in the living room with all her toys. She pulled herself up on the fence; I had to hold the fence in order for her to accomplish this, but it was all her.
We’re heading to Hawaii on Wednesday and I think it could not come soon enough for Brian and I. It will be interesting to see how Ellie fares on the plane – any tips anyone has are very welcome!
Here’s a video of Ellie standing recently:
We also started swim lessons last week and Ellie is NOT a fan of the water. Hopefully by the end of the session, she’ll be a little more excited to take a dip.
