Backtracking to February

This is February. Ellie is 14 months.

She got into that basket all by herself.

Unfortunately, I can't remember why I took this picture. I think she was trying to manage holding lots of things. But I do love when she holds her little baby doll.

She loves when I hand her towel to clean the floors with. I think she feels like she is really helping.

James built some desks for our office and Ellie was wanting to be in the action.

Getting Jolie out of her crate in a morning highlight. And Ellie is into zippers lately and  she was able to unzip the crate that much to try to get her out (too tiny of a hole though). I didn't even know she trying to get her out all by herself. So very cute.

Valentine's Day pictures. It is getting hard to take pictures of her by myself. I can't get her to stand still. Here is me saying, "Where is your belly button?" 
  "Fold your arms for prayer."
 "Sit here or else..." Kidding. James was home by this time. Good distraction. 

 There is a (tiny) local aquarium here and we bought a yearly pass. Ellie is enjoying it more and starting to ooh and aah. She also enjoys touching the animals (aka touching the water).

Valentine's church dress. I found the darn dress I had been saving for V-day AFTER V-day so we wore it to church. 

Playing in a fort.

This is an old picture of Tania's kids, Sadie and newborn Everett. Ellie frequently goes and finds it on the shelf and carries it around pointing to the baby. There is also a picture of James and I that she likes to get too and points to "dada."

Too flipping cute for words! I rarely check on her before bed. I know she's fine and I don't want to risk waking her since the door is right by her crib. But we were having space heater temperature issues and so I went to check the temperature in her room and found her like this. 

The stage kids go through-walking in big people shoes. 

There you have it. A quick overview of February.


  1. She's a dynamic little girl :P

  2. I'm just realizing how much of your blog I've been missing out on :( our laptop has been dead for an extremely long time and I just have my phone. I love her VDay pics! Her smile is precious. Love watching her grow.

  3. I LOVE that Valentine's dress! I can't believe it's almost already that time of year again. :-O Hopefully she still fits it! haha. She probably does. :P I'm loving all these pictures. I think I'm finally caught up reading your blog. I'm such a slacker.
