Last week we went to see a paediatric pulmonologist about Mia's constant coughing. We had to have a blood test done to check allergies, and it was very traumatic, for both Mia and mommy! I haven't heard back from the doctor yet about her allergies, but she was put on two asthma pumps, and we'll see the doctor again in a month's time. We've had 5 consecutive nights of no coughing - the best it's been in 3 months!
This little sad face just breaks my heart!
After the doc appointment and traumatic needle experience, I asked Mia what'll make her feel better - she chose cupcakes at the dairy farm!
Last week me, my sister, Mia and Ella went on a road trip to Polokwane to visit my folks! Wyn was in Germany for 3 days. It was great to visit Granny and Oupa for a few days, special times.
Mia built a 24-piece puzzle all by herself for the first time. I couldn't believe it, she took me by surprise! I thought she was just turning the pieces around and waiting while I changed Ella's nappy, and when I got to her, she was already halfway - so I went to make a cup of coffee, and when I got back, she had built the whole puzzle! Big girl! ♥
Ella is busy cutting her molars. Gosh, they're taking forever... Sometimes she is a happy smiley chatty baby, like this face here:
But we've had a whole lot of this going on too:
She's not walking yet, but definitely starting to test her balance more and more and just needs to get the self-confidence to actually give her first proper step. She gives one or two steps between the couch or table to me, then falls into my arms and thinks it's a big game.
Mia's been enjoying school, they recently did numbers 1-10 and she took it very seriously, learning how to recognise and write them.
Ella loves her weekly Moms&Babes class, takes part so nicely and gets so excited when she hears the familiar songs. I enjoy the hour of being completely focussed on her too!
Today's freezing, and Mia's school has a Pajama Day - they all went to school in their pj's, and they're going to have Milo, marshmallows and pancakes! Bliss!
My first week back on the weight loss mission went well - I'm down 0.5kg since the 1st of June, yay! Now to just keep going at this pace!
