{weekly update} week 44

Another week has passed and my sweet Ellie Faith is getting so big, strong, curious, and smart!!  It has been so much watching her discover even more this week!!

Eats: girlfriend is in love with food. She is getting really good at self feeding and just shovels food into her mouth!! She lose sitting in her high chair an joining us at the table. I don't think we introduced any new foods this week but she is starting to understand her sippy cup. 

Sleeps: Ellie is sleeping the majority of the night in her crib.  The past two nights she has made it the whole night!!  This has been a hard transition for myself, (I should write a whole post on it!) as she started rolling over and sleeping on her tummy.  I get so nervous at night that she is going to suffocate that I end up bringing her into our bed so she can be close to me.  I am not sure when that fear will disappear (if ever) but I am slowly getting better and making fewer trips into her room at night to check her breathing and roll her onto her back.

Goes: Ellie Faith is such a great traveler.  Aside from the usual trips to church, grocery shopping, and restaurants we also went to the park this weekend with Ellie's birth mom!  We had a wonderful visit her and it was so nice to be able to watch the two of them together - I think Ellie recognized her.

Loves: her activity cube (see photo below), her crib and mobile, any toy that makes noise, her fake remote control for the tv, cell phones (not allowed!), shoulder rides, standing, and eating.

look at those curls she woke up with one morning!

Does: can officially pull herself up onto our coffee table, in her crib, and activity cube.  Girlfriend has been holding out on us because she can actually crawl!! its just not her preferred form of movement, she likes her army-crawl-wiggle! Claps her hands, signs "more", says "dada", waves "hi-hi" and "goodbye", also she gives high-fives! adorable.

Mama: My first week of being 30 has been rough.  I had to put my horse down on Thursday (he has been in my life for nearly 17 years) and I got some medication to hopefully help with my migraines and it has made me drowsy! My life with Little Sweet E is just the best and I am so thankful she is in my life.  Thomas has been super supportive as well and brought home flowers for me yesterday - he speaks my language!

Sweet Ellie you are just my little chunk of love!! Darling girl I am so grateful to be your Mama and am loving getting to watch you grow into the cute and sweet little girl.
