Ella had her first proper bath today. It took her a full 8 weeks to get rid of her umbilical cord stump. I know, I know. That's highly unusual and I probably should have taken her into the doctor to have them hack it off long ago... but I didn't and Ella turned out just fine. She's now even cuter and can enjoy soaking in a tub rather than being sponged down every other day.
All is well here. We're just enjoying Ella's company - she really does get cuter every day. She likes to smile and laugh after eating. And she snorts like a pig when she gets really mad. We take her in for her 2 month (2 months already!!!!) checkup on Tuesday. I'll let you know how that goes. She has to get several shots and I'm sure it will be difficult for me to watch... but we all go through it, I guess...
