She's on the Move

I'll be doing another post soon to answer any questions Ellie's post might have brought up, but I couldn't resist sharing what Ellie's been up to these past couple of days.  She's become a real mover and has figured out that she prefers our hardwoods and vinyl flooring to the blankets that we lay her on.  Why?  Because she can scoot herself around on her belly using her mainly arms with a little bit of help from her legs.  She's seriously all over the place!

As I type, she's attempting to get from the living room to the kitchen.  Why?  Because her "dada" is in the kitchen.  And yes, all night she has been saying "dada" when ever she can't see Kit because she really wants to see her daddy!

In addition to these two exciting new tricks, she also held her own bottle while she ate for two full feedings today.

AND when Ellie and I were in Bath & Body Works today getting a Christmas present for Kirsten, she said, "Ha," to get the attention of one of the employees.  "Ha" has been her version of "Hi," and this was the first time she actually said it to someone at a perfectly appropriate time.  THEN tonight while playing on a blanket with Kit, he said, "Hi!" to her and she responded right back, "Hi!"

Apparently her announcement made her realize that she needs to get a move on so that she stays ahead of the pack!

 Her new found love of hard flooring led to her licking the vinyl in the kitchen.  Kit had Coco tell her last night that even he (Coco) doesn't lick the floor! Coco thinks the IQ in this house dropped significantly when Ellie picked up this trick.

This morning, after rolling to lick the floor 5-6 times and being placed back on her blanket 5-6 times, she rolled herself under the dishwasher and began playing with the buttons.

She thought this was the coolest thing ever.  Until she rolled over while underneath and bonked her head.

 Our happy, big girl!  She's looking more and more like her daddy every day!
