It's so hard for us to believe that in 2 short months Ella will be 1 year old! She is growing into a sweet little toddler right before our eyes. This month has been full of rapid development. She is now crawling quite proficiently, belly off the ground and all. With this newfound ease of movement she is everywhere all the time, getting into everything! She is also eating more real food, current favorites are Cheeze-it's and graham crackers. I have to hide the boxes during mealtime's. She is also pulling up to stand...one step closer to walking! A few other new tricks: waving "hi" and "bye-bye" and shaking her head no, a lot. She's starting to display a stubborn little will, that amuses and frustrates me to no end. Every day is an adventure!
