I started this blog to help with my grief, a strategy to let my emotions spill out on to the page and release my head of everything going on. For me, this meant I could be a stronger person for everyone else, I could deal with my own grief in a quieter, more private way and be there when others needed me.
However, I feel like this Rainbow Mummy deserves to boast and brag about her Rainbow.
For the past two weeks Ellie has started wriggling around in a circle on the floor, moving to get to what she wants even if it’s behind her. We’ve woken up to find she’s upside down in her cot as she has moved herself around in the night. This was enough to make us excited and remind me that my tiny little baby is becoming a moving, wriggling toddler very quickly!
However last Saturday, whilst lying on the bed, Ellie decided she wanted Hubby’s phone and commando crawled to get it!!! She has been pulling her legs up and lunging forwards, getting quicker and quicker. I know all babies do this but while she isn’t yet 7 months old I feel like she’s achieving her milestones quite early. I wouldn’t care if she doesn’t crawl for another few months I’m just so proud of her.
Now for the mammoth task of child proofing the living room, making sure nothing can fall on her and putting the stair gates up in the living room and top of the stairs before she is really moving around 😛
