Last week was awful and then ended with me getting sick. I'm just now starting to feel better. I still have pictures I need to share from our trip but I haven't been in the mood to upload and edit them. I might need a break from blogging. I know our families love to be able to keep up with what is going on with us and Elinor, maybe a couple of friends too.
Instead of going into what's going on and being negative, I'm going to take a tip from my sister... She told me she bought a journal to write down her positives of the week. We tend to dwell on the negatives and I don't want to sink into that with so much going on.
*Elinor started singing and acting out the itsy bitsy spider this week. I cried. Dave and I were sitting talking while she was playing in front of us. I realized what she was doing and tapped Dave to look. We tried to get videos but haven't been able to yet. She started head, shoulders, knees and toes too.
*Elinor also began singing a special family lullaby that my family sings. We call it the uh huh song. She was with Dave way passed nap time and started humming it to herself. Again, I cried. I've been singing it to her since she was born and it is so amazing that she is singing it to herself now.
*Dave took such great care of not only me being so sick but completely took over everything for Elinor. I didn't have to worry or remind him to do anything. I'm with her all day, all the time so I'm not sure if he would remember snacks/potty/etc. He never asked and she rarely cried for me (only when she wanted milk). I love that guy so much!
*Of course we are all still so happy we have been able to see so much of our family recently. We will see you soon Grandmom!
