Example: her eating. Ellie loves to feed herself and has quickly mastered the art of picking something up and shoveling it into her open mouth. She wants real food - none of this pureed nonesense - and wants to feed herself. Needless to say, when we let her, we have a serious mess on our hands, but it's worth it to see how happy it makes her - not too mention she is so cute when she tries to pick up little pieces of chicken or cheese or whatnot. Her favorite foods are venision and chicken, which I think is kind of hilarious. Thanks to Grandstan's (yes, that's Grandpa Stan - we've shortened it) hunting endeavors, she's got enough venision to last quite some time. Ellie sits with us at the table on an awesome little booster type seat (mamas to be, take note! This is what we use instead of a highchair. It works so well for us, and has the added bonus of being totally portable, which is awesome).
|also, she loves Starbucks!|
|Girl is quite clever. This attempt at "babyproofing" lasted ten minutes before she "un-babyproofed" it|
