So Ella has had a runny nose for the past 2 days. Yesterday I thought she was getting a cold since she had a small cough, but today she’s been putting everything in her mouth and cried when she bit down on a puff. So I haven’t a clue. They say teething can cause a mild fever and runny nose. But she has been fussy while sleeping and normal when awake. She stayed up until 10:30 last night! Then woke up every 30 min. starting at 5 am. Today she took a 2 1/2 hour nap! We go to the doctor tomorrow for her checkup, so the doc can tell me then what she thinks. Ella has only had 1 cold and she was 2 or 3 months old. So I don’t know what to expect from her. The past couple of days I’ve been living on memory lane by watching all of Ella’s videos. I don’t remember her being that small! I miss my tiny smiley baby. I miss those belly laughs that would last 5 to 10 minutes. I still get laughs, but for 10 seconds. She loved watching herself. She would growl at herself when she was growling in the video. Or say things that she was trying to say back then. She really was trying to say things at 3 months. It now doesn’t surprise me that she is trying or is saying everything I am. I’ve given up on writing down all of her new words because she’s spitting out at least 2 or 3 a day. But she doesn’t always say them again. She did finally say Ra Ra for Rachael, which melted her heart. It’s always been ST for Steve and it’s made Rachael a bit jealous. So now they are even. 🙂 We went to Gymboree this morning and mom finally came with us. It was a fun class. Ella was walking around like the other big kids. She has finally decided to take off. Well, she walks at a turtle’s pace, but she is trying to go everywhere. I’ll take a video and post tomorrow. We then went to Eddie’s with Morgan, Matt and Ari. I was hoping to go to her house to scrap, but with Ella’s long nap and running errands, we ran out of time. Hope everyone had a great day!
