Growing Up


Ella is 15 months old today. She said mommy this morning for the first time. She babbles mamama a lot, but today Brandon asked her where mommy was and she looked right at me, pointed and said "Mommy!" It was the best feeling, especially since she's been saying Daddy for months! Ella can now clearly say: Daddy, Mommy, Baby, Cat, Dog, Pig, Bug and I'm sure lots others we just haven't understood yet. She can sign "eat" and "more". She can growl like a tiger, say "who who" like and owl, and say "choo choo" like a train. She pretends to talk on the phone and can give high fives. I can't believe how much she is growing and understanding. I feel so blessed to spend every day with this little person so full of happiness and love.

Way to sneak some peas in there! :)
A classic "spaghetti-on-the-face" picture, but one of the cutest ones I've ever seen! She's darling!
