Little Miss Busy

Ellie is still little miss busy. She's getting braver each day, trying to stand or walk on her own. Neither are working so well for her yet. But she is stretching herself and learning new things every day. It's good to see and fun to watch, but usually requires a little more attention and cleanup.

I found out that Ellie has learned to open ziplock bags. Unfortunately, I learned this after she got into the diaper bag and emptied a ziplock of graham crackers all over the living room floor and crawled over top of them. You can see her shaking the ziplock in the picture above. Thanks, Ellie.

Ellie was very proud of herself for getting over to the swing from her push-walker. She thought it was pretty funny to lean against the bar and push the swing with both hands.

We bought new bowls for Ellie and she loves to play with them. If you ask me, though, I think Leif has more fun with them. It is pretty funny when she holds them up and looks at things through them, though! Silly girl.

Yesterday we learned that Ellie can sit up on her knees and balance very well. She just sat like this playing with the toys in her bucket for a long time. Then she decided to pull herself up to standing. Thankfully, I had the camera in hand already, so I caught her pulling to standing for the first time ever.



... and away!

And right over to the bookcase. She will definitely be getting into more things now!

I love the eye level view of Ellie & her graham cute. :)

I think little babies sitting on their little knees are so adorable!
