1. She went swimming for the first time last week and loved it. BIG THANK YOU to Tiffany and Jason for making this happen. Ellie gets cold very quickly so swimming in the ocean in New England is not possible and because of her g-tube ponds and their amoebic denizens are prohibited so a therapy pool is our best/only option. She stayed in for 25 minutes playing peek-a-boo and "chase" Tiffany. She also just hung out and felt herself light and floating. Ahhhhh!
2. Ellie has been coming back from her oral aversion redux. She is eating about half of her meal for Dave and I on a regular basis. AND she ate a little for me on our own with the help of baby Einstein and Brown Bear, Brown Bear. We have to keep our eye on the prize and know that we will get back to our Ellie who was eating 2 cups of porridge in one sitting in under 20 minutes. Here she is snuggled up with Dada watching the Mama show.
3. The fact that my husband is the best father a little girl could ask for.
4. The moment when Dave doesn't kill me for putting him on the web in his "jammies" in desperate need of a haircut. That is love!
