MeeMaw gave Ella this walker for Christmas. Up until now, she could only use it on the carpet because it would fly out from under her. Now she can practically jog behind it in the kitchen. Heaven forbid if something gets in her way, like the poor dog. Ella is not walking on her own yet, but we think it could be any day. She can stand alone as long as she wants.
Tonight we let Ella run around the house naked for a little while. You would think she received the greatest gift in the world! She cackled as she crawled around. She couldn't decide where to go first! Shortly after, she had her bath and then off to Daddy's salon for pampering! The ride to and from the salon is half the fun!
This was the day after we visited Nashville for Ella's Cousin Cooper's 3rd Birthday. It was the longest trip she has ever taken and it definately took its toll on her. She was exhausted. At one point I caught her in the living room in the middle of the floor, sprawled out on her belly trying to watch T.V. Poor baby she was pooped! We had a lot of fun in Nashville though, and we hope that Cooper had a great Birthday!
The temperture today was supposed to hit 70! So, after church, we loaded up and went to Tannehill to ride in the wagon, do a little hiking and play on the playground! A good time was had by all! However, we did miss a nap, and napping in the backpack just isn't the same as a nap at home. So we were a little grumpy by the time we got home. Later that night we met up with my family to celebrate my 30th birthday! I can't believe I'm not in my twenties anymore!
