I haven't written yet about the sweetest thing Ella does. She started doing it a few weeks ago. While I'm busy cooking or cleaning in the kitchen, she'll walk up to me and and give my leg a little hug, sometimes resting her head on it. Can anything make you feel as good? I don't think so. At that moment, everything in the world seems okay.
Truly every day w/her is a blessing. She's learning something new all the time. She always eager to learn new signs. I think she knows 20 now. Today she watched me intently as I did fish lips for fish.
We had a wonderful weekend w/Will's parents. Ella's favorite thing was the stairs at Ma-Ma's. She went up and down, up and down. When Will told his mom, "I bet you're getting tired of helping her do this," she replied, "No, I could do this all day." :-)
On Sunday, we went to Abbie's surprise 30th b-day party-it was lots of fun. And Ella finally got to "play" w/Sam. He is a big boy (and quite handsome), but it wasn't as big of a difference in the two as I thought it'd be. Abbie looked radiant of course-she already has the pregnancy glow. And Liz did a super job w/the party-food and games were terrific.
