Seeing as Elodie is still a newborn baby in my head, I cannot believe this is the last monthly update before she turns 1. She’s becoming more and more like her big sister by the day – in both looks and personality – so it seems like I’m going to have two super beautiful but super headstrong girls on my hands. Fun, fun, fun!
I feel like we’re at a point now where Elodie suddenly feels closer to being a toddler than a newborn, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. She’s got such a lovely little personality, and has really come out of her shell. She’s always laughing and smiling, and she’s into absolutely everything (the amount of bumps she’s had already is not ok). So here’s 10 months of Little E rounded up…
Every time I write down the month for the title, my heart breaks a little. It just feels like it’s flying by even faster this time round. How is that so?
There’s something about babies at 8 months old that I just love. It’s like the first real feel we get of their little personalities, isn’t it? I can already tell that Elodie is going to be much more timid than Amelie. I also can’t believe I ever doubted her development- she’s come on leaps and bounds. 8 whole months of Elodie, and what a dream she’s been!
Sorry, did I just blink and my newborn turned into a fully fledged 7 month old? Woah.
Where has the last 6 months gone? How is my little 5lbs 7oz baby now half a year old? Crazy!
Oh Eddie (in the words of Amelie), what a dream you’ve been! I mean, besides the fact that you are a notorious nap avoider. We’ll get onto that in a second.
I’ve been pretty much tied to the same four walls for the past month since both my girls have had chicken pox and we’re in the middle of packing up to move house. I’ve done a lot of thinking throughout this case of cabin fever. After feeling continuously lethargic, moody and losing an abnormal (for me) amount of weight; I decided to seek some medical advice “How often are you resting?” The doctor asked me. Well, every time I try to rest I can feel my chest going tight and my heart pounding out of it. “How well do you sleep?” She then asked. Well, I mean besides the broken sleep inbetween feeding Elodie I sleep pretty goo- …Crap.
Are you loving these updates or are they a bit boring to keep up with? I wrote them every month for Amelie’s first year and I still read them back now on the odd occasion. I also find it so interesting to read other people’s updates to see what other baby’s are doing, how much they weigh, how often they feed. I know all babies are different but it’s just interesting you know? So here’s four month old Elodie in a nutshell…
So Elodie did actually reach three months old on the 18th but you know… Slacking blogger, busy mum, blah blah blah. I don’t know whether it’s a second baby thing but I’ve got Little E completely wrapped in cotton wool. She’s definitely not as advanced as Amelie was at this age, and I take full blame for that. If keeping her this small was an option, I’d be here for it!
