|Into Penny's and Mama's things...|
We just exclaim over her all the time because she is just so stinkin' cute! The older two crack up when she says what they tell her to say. She loves books and lately has been insisting, "NO Mama, Ellie read it!" About a week ago she tried to climb out of the crib and flipped herself out of it. She was fine but clearly ready for the big girl bed. Thankfully that was a smooth transition. She is so proud of sleeping in that bed and has cut the night routine from two to three books to just one so she can hurry and get in bed! Ellie attends preschool three days a week and loves it! Her teachers didn't believe me at first that she could talk because she stayed completely silent at school until just a few weeks ago. That's just how she is. She had to warm up to all the new people before she would start showing off who she is.
We celebrated Ellie's birthday yesterday with our friends Sara, Jack, and Ford. They came over and played. Then we had pizza and cupcakes and Ellie got to open her presents. Jack and Ford gave her a princess puzzle and we gave her a little tricycle. She enjoyed the presents. I'm not sure what she will think when in a few days we have Christmas and there are more presents!
We are so thankful to have this little sweetie rounding out our family. She is so fun and we can't wait to see how she grows and changes in the coming year. Happy Birthday Ellie Boo!
