While I was in Houston, Jason sent me pics via his blackberry (not a very good camera), but all pics were much appreciated and some were equally as amusing!! She was a little congested, which is why she is at the Dr. in one and asleep in her boppy seat in another. The one of her crying broke my heart. Thank you Daddy for taking such good care of Ella Grace while I was away.
Mrs. Becky, from Ella's daycare, suprised us today by putting Ella's hair in a ponytail. I can not get her hair up like that! I wish we could bring Mrs. Becky home with us to fix Ella's hair. Yes...I know...It's out of control..but she's bald in the back!! The great debate..to cut or not to cut. Hmmm..should I just let it go until I can get it in a ponytail (its in her eyes by the way), or should I cut it so it can all grow in together.
Of course we had to try on Ella's Bunny costume because Nonnie and Don didn't get to see it Halloween. We wanted to see how cute she was! Um, "this carrot is yummy"! She's adorable!!! Afterward, Ella decided that she was thirsty, and she only wanted Don's water from a glass, we had never given her anything to drink from a glass before, but she knew just what to do. She spilled it all over her of course. She is always watching and learning! Later, she was watching cartoons in her bouncy seat and daddy didn't buckle her in, we caught her lounging with her legs up to the side. I wish I had a bouncy seat!
