Diet: Ellie is still eating about 26-28 ounces of formula a day and is really taking to her rice cereal. We feed it to her once a day, usually in the evening. She gets about 1 1/2 teaspoons of cereal with about 2 teaspoons of formula to mix in. Hoping to try something new next week, probably peas.
Crying: Once again we have a stellar daughter. Cries when tired, hungry, or her teeth hurt. She has been easy to console with a cuddle, food, or swaddle. But let me tell you she makes the cutest pouty face!
Sleep: EF has been pretty good about this. She has been taking a pretty good 3 hour nap in the morning and then a couple power naps in the afternoon. Girlfriend has been sleeping about 8 to 10 hours at night and wakes up a happy girl! She still sleeps in her bassinet. We have it out in the living room during the day and then back in our room at night. As soon as we invest in a monitor she will transition to her nursery.
Clothes: I have officially retired all of her newborn clothes (minus the nightgowns) and prepped all of the 3-6 month clothes we have. 0-3 are still fitting though some are getting a little short.
Baby Gear Love: Pie is loving to play on her activity mat while sitting and also loves to be pushed in her princess walker (she is too short to reach the ground). We are also loving her Baltic Amber necklace for teething and pain relief. Ellie has also started liking Sophie a lot more and is now trying to stick most of her toys in her mouth. We are also loving the boppy for feeding and lounging/sitting and sometimes with sleeping when she gets really congested. Baby Girl is also a huge fan of my old Poms from community college. If you follow me on IG (@lifeonthefarm) you can see videos of her playing with them!!
And of course she LOVES her puppies and they love her too!
Milestones: Little Miss E is really liking Bath time she kicks and splashes in the water. She also is making moves towards crawling, really getting her legs/feet under her and sticking her butt up in the air (if only she would support her weight on her arms a little more we might be moving already). She does a little scooch (sp?) with her face in the floor so it can't feel too good, ha!
Mama: I am starting to feel much better and hopefully my body I starting to go back to normal. I am just so looking forward to Ellie's first Halloween on Thursday and can't wait to show you all her costume! The holiday season is upon us and I can't believe we actually get to celebrate with a little one this year!
Sweet Ellie I just love you so much!
