One of the most fascinating things about E these days is watching her figure out her little world. Cause and effect seem to be the skill de'jour. And she's getting quite good at it. She'll put her brush to her head to "brush" her hair, put her sock on her foot- basically she knows where things should go and what they should do, she just can't quite do it yet.
However, Christmas morning she had quite the runny nose, everyone was constantly wiping it for her. On one particular wipe from mama, she took the tissue from my hand and wiped her nose all by herself! It was hilarious! *Note great-grandma cracking up in the background.
We had a wonderful Christmas celebration with the family. It was so much fun watching Ella enjoying herself on Christmas morning. She did a little bit of gift opening and a lot of crawling around among the presents, discarded wrapping paper, etc. I know she can't wait 'til next year!

Another month has come and gone and sweet E is a little older and wiser. Last week was her most eventful. She started walking (but still prefers the effortless crawling), said her first "sentence" of "hi dada!" and she has sprouted 3 molars in just days. We can't get over how much fun she is. We are all looking forward to celebrating Christmas together, especially since E will be much more aware.

You don't know how temtped I am to use this for our card. This photo perfectly captures the chaos that was our shoot today. Neither of our children were cooperating- Charlie especially refused to look at the camera. Thankfully we did end up with some good ones.
