It's crazy to think that Eleanor has been alive outside my belly as long as she was inside. How is this possible?
Our daughter continues to entertain us every day. She's been in the most amazing mood lately, even with a nasty ear infection and terrible diaper rash.
Tidbits this week:
Ellie's quite the dog lover now and her newfound love is teetering on obsession. She even says duh-gy... so cute. As we stroll around town with her in the Bjiorn and she spots a dog, she kicks her legs, flails her arms and squeals until the dog acknowledges her.
We've started watching sign language DVDs, and Ellie can't get enough of it. Just within the first week, she's responsive to several signs - milk, water, dog, fish, more...
Ellie went under water about 10 times at swim class this week for 4 whole seconds. I'm pretty sure my heart stops beating every time she's submerged.
Ellie can climb all 17 stairs in about 90 seconds or less. She seems to be extremely coordinated because she hasn't slipped or fallen once (knock on wood).
We had so much fun with Uncle Nick and Aunt Jane in town last weekend. Ellie performed, as expected, and the Hawks even squeaked out a win for us. Saturday UT/KU game, followed by a pub crawl + Sunday brunch and South Congress + Monday Drag/Downtown/Tex Mex = fun, family weekend. The weather here has been just perfect - 70s and sunny during the day and cooler at night.

Ellie got ahold of Justin's wallet and played with the contents for a good 30 minutes. Pure heaven.
