I am so enjoying this mothering thing!
I took Ellie swimming last week, I bought someswim nappies but when I got there they had the most adorable pink bikini just in her size, I could not resist! She absolutely loves the water, so we are now in training for the 2012 olympics in London! It was ashame that they do not allow cameras at the pool, I would have loved a photo, she didn't even mind being 'dunked' under!
DH has now gone part time at work and so far its working really well with us looking after Ellie between us, I take her to work with me on a Thursday morning, when the receptionist will keep an eye on her, but I realise that when Ellie becomes more active I will need to look into childcare for that day.
I still haven't had to buy Ellie any clothes, she just got sooooooo many when she was born, I think we will have enough until she is around 6 months.
My pram broke the other day, I think DH must have forced it down and bent the workings (he is always so impatient with things!) Anyway the shop has sent it for repair, so all I have is a little stroller, which Ellie is still really a bit small for, but it will have to do, I also have the sling to carry about in.
When I get the pram back, I know that it is time for it to be converted into the pushchair, I am not looking forward to that! I will miss being able to see Ellies face as I walk along singing and talking to her (people must think I am a bit crazy but do I care
Is anyone under pressure to start feeding solids? It is recommended not to feed until around 6 months, but my Mum, Nan and older friends are all saying I should start now, even DH has started to mention it, but she is only 4 months, so I am resisting all persuasion - so far!
Re teething: Ellie is chomping away at anything near her and she is blowing so many bubbles it looks like I'm feeding her washing up liquid, or has she developed Rabies????? But no sign of any teeth yet, which is good really because 3 bites and she's off the boobies!
Ellie has her next injections next week, so far she has been fine with them, other than a bit of crying at the time, but this one is the 3 jabs
Keep well everyone!
