Well, Ella is really moving around now. Plus, she’s pulling up on us and trying to dive over stuff. Makes for a little more action. She’s making a new funny face when she’s frustrated or focused. See the video here. Of course, we thought it was funny, so we encouraged it.
We sure enjoyed Mimi coming down to see us. Here’s a video of her bathing Ella. She’s pretty high on the baby girl.
Ella woke up a different child yesterday! It was a day of firsts……..she woke from her morning nap sitting up in her crib and peeking through the crib bars at me with a big smile on her face, binkies in hand, of course. Next, she said, "Ba-ba," to daddy as he was leaving for lunch and we were telling him goodbye. Later in the afternoon, I was laying on the floor playing with her and she grabbed on to my leg and stood up. Once Joel came home, she started crawling, and to top it all off, she stood up again in the bath tub. What’s tomorrow going to look like??? Maybe I can hook her up to the vacuum cleaner….
Ella quite enjoys Jamy’s and Kristin’s dog. We came to Tyler after the reunion with Emily’s family close to Palestine, TX. Fun times in Tyler.
