Elora Hazel is 9 months and it’s been an intense month…
She had a high fever, followed by a few days of mid range fever, followed by her two bottom teeth popping out. The entire month was hard in terms of sleep and eating and then she started doing a 1-knee crawl and then she discovered how to sit from laying on her tummy.
So like I said, it’s been an intense month. Full of learning, development, tired arms and full hearts.
Outside of all of this, she got to sit on Santa’s lap, open lots of Christmas presents and tried her dadi’s (paternal grandmother) banana bread for the first time (it has white sugar in it so definitely tried to avoid it lol).
She’s watched a few scenes of Frozen here and there (thanks to Big Sis who wants to watch it ALL.THE.TIME) and is still in love with the song “Part of that World” from the The Little Mermaid. She’s figured out that she can move to music and close her eyes when she smiles her toothy grin – which makes everyone around her laugh. She’s eating rice and daal from both her grandmothers and will literally grab anything she can to put into her mouth – even faster if she sees me coming to take whats in her hand aka anything she finds from the floor). She loves saying mamammama, dada dada, and nananana (which I believe is her way of saying “Sanya”). She loves playing with her sisters toys (she has a keen eye for tiny magnets, lite brite pegs and dolls that have really long hair).
Oh Ellie babe – we love you so!
