Our Ellie-belly is 4 months. She’s found her voice and uses it to make a hilarious throat gurgle or a high pitched shriek (just in time for witching hour).
She’s also realized she has hair and two ears. She’s found her knees and is trying to understand how they attach to her feet and toes. She is very ticklish, loves to kick us in the face (or kick anything really, bath water, parts of her play gym and even the air) and her fingers are her favourite snack (much to big sissy’s dismay “Elowa we don’t put our fingers in our moups”). She also loves to stare at her sister, especially in the car after preschool pick up.
Her favorite toys are the classic o-ball, o-ball cricket turn toy, as well as this bear because it’s perfect to practice her BLW skills. On that note, she’s started following us as we eat (food from plate to hand, hand to mouth and then it disappears). I think she may have figured out her name (or at least recognize it in the sing song way we say it).
I am having a hard time keeping her finger nails trimmed and not exactly sure what to do with her hair (head bands just don’t stay on!)
Miss El has already visited three work place offices, been to Canada’s Wonderland, several playgyms and a few birthday parties. Can’t believe that she’ll be starting solids in a few months and then I’ll be halfway into my Mat Leave :O
