Big Day for Eleanor

This is an update to the 03/24 post.

On Tuesday, 03/26, Eleanor had a HUGE day. I thought I would post about it so I won't forget it. From now on I think I'll just blog about it and then a couple of days later she will do everything I'm concerned about!

First she had her ultrasound and she did great! Didn't cry, of course they had a TV over the bed playing Mickey Mouse, so they knew what they were doing! LOL. We have to go back in two months because there was a little bit of inflammation on her left side of something (didn't understand where it was) but the doctor didn't seem worried. He said it could've been due to her hydration level or reflux. Going back just for a precautionary thing. I'm going to talk to him more about it on her 4 month appointment in a couple of weeks.

Then the good stuff happened. She finally laughed. FINALLY. Her laugh is kind of a broken laugh and kind of like she is catching her breath.

She slept all night without a swaddle just in a sleep sack. I only had to get up at 4:00 to put a pacifier in her mouth but she never really even woke up. And she slept until 6:30 a.m.!!!! I had to wake her up. She has never slept that late or shall I say never slept that long of a time.

AND she did 5 minutes of tummy time but stopped crying at minute 5 and went another 5 minutes without crying. I almost filmed it because I couldn't believe it.

I'm not sure what got into her that day but it was a great day here in the Hawkins household.

P.S. She also got to FaceTime with her MimiSue and Pop for the first time because MimiSue finally figured out how to work the wireless feature on her phone that she bought just for that purpose :)

  1. Fabulous! I love a baby laugh! I knew she would do it. Don't read too much... I know they are supposed to (fill in the blank) by the time they are (fill in the blank) months old. But some babies just move in their own time. Now, if she was a year old and hadn't laughed yet, we'd have to talk. But being a few weeks off from what the "books" say or other babies her age, is really just her growing and doing things in her own way and her own time. She's related to us ... she may not be in a big hurry to do anything! LOL
