I am slowly trying to get back in to a routine as I am sure everyone else is as well. I have been a terrible blogger to start off the New Year but it has been kind of nice to just slow everything down for a bit.
So Ella is really doing well with pulling up on everything in sight. As you can see from the photos above, she has figured out that she can pull up to the Rockband Wii and she was having a lot of fun copying what her sisters do. She has also realized that she can pull up to the kitchen table and reach her hands up to the top of the table. The other night, she managed to pull a plate of food onto the floor. She caught us off guard!!
But yesterday she made big strides in that she actually started cruising along the couch and coffee table. Once she figured it out, she really took off.
On the medical front, her blood levels are still holding as of 2 weeks ago. We will go see her oncologist next week so will do another blood draw then. The good news is that the two small holes in her heart appear to have closed. We did an echocardiogram last week and the cardiologist said everything looked good and we don't have to come back to see him anymore. At least we can cross one specialist off the list. We also had her first OT visit yesterday to work on getting her to eat solid foods. Ella had so much fun there and really didn't want to leave. Right now the OT just wants to get her used to her and touching her face and then we will start trying to introduce some food in the next few weeks.
I hope everyone is having a great start to the New Year.
