Happy 17 months, Ella!
Ella is 17 months today! WOW!
Here are a variety of pics I've taken over the last month and haven't shared yet. We had a fashion show one night to let her model some summer clothes before I stored them. These outifts are actually hand-me-downs from my childhood (and thus my sisters' childhood as I inherited their clothes). Love the pose she has in the red dress.
A couple w/her cute pink headband and a few doing her "Englishman" look as Dad Kannon calls it. For some unknown reason, she prefers at times to walk around w/her hands behind her back.
One day while I was typing on the computer and Ella was playing in the office, I heard a grunt. I turned around to see Ella stuck in this box. I couldn't resist taking a pic before getting her out.
And the suprised look while reading the book? Well, the next to the last page of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" says "He built a small house, called a coccoon, around himself. He stayed inside for more than two weeks. Then he nibbled a hole in the cocoon, pushed his way out and...(turn the page) he was a beautiful butterfly!" I always read that last page w/great wonder, so now when she turns to it, she opens her mouth wide!
This is what Ella does almost every time we play w/her blocks. She puts one in her mouth and then offers me one to place in mine. We make quite the pair.
