It's hard to believe our little Ellie is already 18 months old. She is such a joy in our household--and there's never a dull moment when Ellie's around. Just this week she bonked her head on the desk in the living room, slammed her thumb in the door, dropped magnets down the heating vent, lifted UP the heating vent to get aforementioned stuff, pulled out all the spoons in the silverware drawer, tried to climb up the bookshelves, and learned to climb up on our bed. She goes a mile a minute and is intensely curious about life, her surroundings, birds, and airplanes. Nothing escapes her notice, and as her vocabulary expands, I'm sure she'll be letting us know what she's thinking. Her laugh is infectious and she loves to be tickled. Oh, and she is a great kiss-giver but if you're smaller than she is, watch out--she likes to butt you with her head as a kiss.
We love you , little Elliana Hope! We thank God for the joy you bring to our lives.
Ellie began waving to Daddy as we drove past his work several months ago and I just now got it on camera. Usually she doesn't need so much prompting, but I think the camera is distracting her. Ellie LOVES her daddy and will stand and wave and yell bye bye from the door as he walks to his car. It's so cute!
This was taken just the other day. Ellie pulled her own pants off and decided she wanted to have a dance party in just her onesie. So we did!
