Ellie just started really sticking out her tongue this week – A LOT! The majority of the pictures I’m posting this week are of her with that cute little tongue stuck out. When she’s playing, trying to crawl, blowing raspberries or just being silly… there was that tongue! It’ll be interesting to see if that’s something she continues to do or not.
Ellie wants so bad to be a mover! She just won’t sit still when she’s on our laps and she reaches for EVERYTHING. She’s sitting up in the bathtub now and will wiggle her way from one side of the tub to the other side quite easily.
Even on her belly during tummy time she inches her way around in a circle – but hasn’t quite gotten the concept of legs and arms moving together to move forward. Her belly is almost off of the floor when she straightens out her arms.
Ellie loves drinking out of big people cups…she can’t get the hang of a sippy-cup, but is willing to try to drink out of any of our cups or water bottles. Lately, when trying to help her drink out of cups she’s started reaching in and grabbing the ice cubes… it’s pretty cute.
I can’t wait to see what the next few weeks bring. I guess I feel that way all the time – I CHERISH every moment I get to spend with her, loving the moment we’re in… but I also look forward to the “next thing” just because I see her changing and growing every day. I just love that sweet baby of mine!!
