Tummy Time

So Ellie hates tummy time. She usually screams and cries, or just flips over. I was watching a commercial for some baby product the other day, though, and noticed that the baby was leaning over a pillow for tummy time. I also remembered the packaging for our Boppy saying it was great for tummy time. So I gave it a try a few days ago. Works like a charm! Ellie's happy to be on her belly so long as her arms are free to move and play with things. She still doesn't want to do it for very long - 10 minutes at the most - but it's good practice for that crawling position. It's especially cute when she gets her little legs moving and inches her behind into the air. I've got to get a picture of that one of these days. It's too cute.

Ellie has also started preferring her daddy's company to mine in the last few days. When Leif gets home, she wants him to hold her. So last night Leif put Ellie's feet into the inside pockets of his coat, zipped it up, and toted Ellie around like that. She was just as content as could be as he walked around in this makeshift snuggli. They looked like a little totem pole! It was sweet as could be.
