This has been quite a week. We cannot believe how far Ella has progressed in such a short time. This little girl who could barely hold her head up three weeks ago is now rolling across the floor, grabbing everything in sight, and almost sitting up by herself. The exersaucer has become a favorite activity.
She also began eating solid foods this week which was a big milestone to cross. Until this week she would only take formula with a little cereal mixed in her bottle. We kept offering her baby food, but she would press her lips together so tight and shake her head. One day she was at the table watching Claire eat her soup and she seemed interested so we gave her a spoon and dipped it in Claire's bowl. That was all it took. We began feeding her applesauce and pretending like it came from Claire's bowl. Once she discovered that she liked it, we haven't been able to fill her up. She even licks her bib clean afterwards!!
Ella loves her big sister and they have a great time playing together.
