June 12, 2017 

 Height: 62.5 centimeters (24.6 inches) 
Weight: 6.8 kilos ( 15 pounds)

  • Sucking her hands/fingers 
  • Turning to her left side 
  • Squealing, talking, and cooing 
  • Standing (with assistance) 
  • Baby Sit-ups
  • Pacifier before she goes to sleep 
  • Walks in the stroller
  • Grabbing toys, rings on activity mat 
  • When you do an evil or old person laugh

  • Still likes...
  • tummy time 
  • Nursing 
  • Baths!  
  • Mornings--she has started to wake up around 6:00-6:30 and is talking about all the things in her crib.
  • Bouncing and rocking on the exercise ball (just like her big bro)

  • The Nose Frida 

The Jury's Out: 

  • Introduced to Merlin's Magic Sleepsuit! 
  • Sleep trained, doing pretty well. Can self-sooth after a few nights of letting her figure it out.  
  • Napping in her crib. 

  • Still...
  • loves to be held while she sleeps 
  • falls asleep when I wear her in the Ergo
  • Pretty much sleeps through the night (7ish-7ish), only to wake up for feedings 

  • On a much more consistent schedule...7, 10, 1, 4 repeat   
  • "Dreamfeeds" during the night...not super consistent.  Sometimes she goes 6 hours without nursing and others only 3.

Favorite Moments: 
  • Our little moments together, just her and me. She gives the biggest smiles when I do goofy things to make her smile. She laughs when you move in and out of her view. 
  • When I nurse her and then she looks up and smiles, dripping milk out of her mouth. 
  • Tae coming onto the bed with us in the morning and giving her a kiss on the top of the head. 

  • Time in the jumper, she likes it but hasn't figured out the jumping part. 
  • Sleeping only in her crib, apart from if she sleeps when I run errands 

Mommy Thoughts: 
Elea is so sweet and happy, it's east to make her smile.  When she smiles her whole face lights up. I said it last month, but with Elea I am taking it all in. I am observing her and wondering what her little personality is going to be like. I'm also learning not to compare Tae and Elea, at this age Tae was rolling over and jumping like MJ in the jumper.  Elea is taking her time and I don't mind one bit. It's really fun to watch Tae's interactions with her, he truly loves her and I can't wait to see how they grow closer.
