Life in slow motion... I wish!

Life seems to be very busy at the moment. Work, nursery, flat to rent, appointments, social life, Ian's exam revision etc etc....


Ella is changing everyday, growing and learning.  She's trying to crawl, mastered finger feeding and continues to enchant us with her ever emerging character.  


We are hoping that her gastrostomy tube will be removed soon as we no longer use it... Baby girl fed herself a whole cheese toastie for lunch today.  A definite proud moment for us. This time last year she was NG fed, had lost her sucking reflex and her heightened gag response meant she wouldn't let anything in her mouth.  To me, the days of her feeding herself were years away and I certainly didn't think that I would be taking pictures like these just a few months later....







Hamster cheeks!

Just keeping an eye on daddy and Chris


I am starting to learn lots more signs (makaton) as she has a good understanding of the signs we are already using and is beginning to copy our actions (need to be more prepared for when she starts signing herself).  She has her own way of communicating 'yes' in answer to questions by putting her hands over her ears! (will try and get a picture).








More teeth have made an appearance too


To Ella, the world has suddenly become a very exciting place. Turning on light switches, rolling lots, exploring toys, flinging things are all favourites....


So is standing at every opportunity...



Splashing in the bath...







Pulling out the plug...





Books.  She loves books...





She also loves playing...





Happy Sunday xx
