Ella continues to get so big. Since she can hold her head up so well now, I decided to get out the exersaucer. I use a few blankets to keep her propped up in it and she absolutely loves it.

She still likes to play on her play mat too. She is spending a lot of time now working on her fine motor skills. You can really see her work hard to move her hands slowly toward the toys and she can actually grasp and bring the toys toward her mouth which she is thrilled about!

Ella's sleep actually got worse in March (and I didn't really think that was possible). She is still not napping longer than 20-40 minutes at a time and waking often after she goes to sleep for the evening. She is still sleeping with us out of necessity (yes, we've now created a monster -- more on that in a later post!). But, there are a lot of things I love about sleeping with her, not the least of which is this adorable smile I get to wake up to each morning. This smile ALMOST makes up for the kinks in my back/neck and also for the fact that I have not had more than 2 hours sleep without waking since she was born!
