8.5 months

Sep 29, 2011 - 6 comments

Wow has time flown by!  I feel like just yesterday I was pregnant and now I am nursing my 8.5 months old baby as I write thus.

Ellie was born 5 weeks premature but has done amazingly well. She is not behind developmentally. I'm very relieved!  She is very bright and talkative. She began rolling over at 6 weeks  said ma ma at 4 months, siting at 5 months, on Saturday she got her front bottom left tooth, Sunday the right one popped through and she also began pulling herself up on furniture. She now says ma ma, Mom, da da, Aba (Hebrew for dad) oof for dog, a da for all done, holds her arms up if you ask if she wants up and she does. She also goes on the potty and the other day she was sitting on the potty pooping and said "poopah". She sometimes will also respond to question with "es" for yes.

I am truly amazed by my daughter. She makes me laugh and smile every day. She rarely cries. At most she cries 5 min a day total but most days no crying. She still doesn't sleep well. She is up every 2-3 hours to eat. But co sleeping really helped so I could get enough sleep.

I'm truly blessed to be able to stay home with Ellie every day. We do have playdates so that she is learning to socialize with other children from a young age. I wouldn't trade this time with her for anything and I cannot wait to give her a brother or sister.

How special!  Just reading gave me tears to my eyes knowing how well children do in general more so when they are premature babies.  You are so blessed to be able to spend so much time with her and be there for a lot of her "firsts".

What a beautiful Journal! Woman like you deserve to have children and its truly a blessing to know you and share experiences with you. I am glad Ellie is doing great and you are enjoying your time with her as she is enjoying her time with ma ma. They grow so fast and before you know it she will be 5 yrs old.

Give yourself a big hug for the great job that you have done ( you deserve it).

Awe Nichole you are so sweet. Thank you. Your comment made me teary eyed. Especially after my less than supportive mother and mother in law and their gripes about us co-sleeping and such. Thank you, you truly made my day.
