Comin' At Ya

We thought Ellie might walk before she got the hang of crawling, but the necessity of mobility and exploration has been the mother of invention. If you click on the picture above you can see some of her very first attempts. This is a few days out-of-date and she's definitely got the hang of it now, so we're very thankful that she's also learning the meaning of "no" at the same time. For example, "No! Don't eat Daddy's tape measure!"

We've been doing a little sign language teaching, but she has no need for it because she's discovered the universally endearing sign that works equally well for "pick me up", "more food, please", "can I have that?", or just "I love you". Click here for a sample.

Here's our happy rosy-cheeked girl after coming in from a nice outing in the chilly air of northern England. In case you can't quite make it out, here's a little zoom-in on that first tooth!

She's getting cuter by the second, and she's grown since we last saw her. Can't wait to see you guys again. Love, Sandra
