She's loving finger foods (kiwi, blueberry, cheese, ham, corn, black beans, etc). She has learned "so big", sign language for 'more' and 'all done' and how to wave at new and old friends. She warms up to people much more quickly and she always smiles when she sees our campus director-- Norm & Katie Hubbard.
She's still happy on the floor. Mostly sitting, but sometimes, preferring to lay down :) She does reach for toys and roll, but we have yet to find her across the room. She refuses to be on her tummy, rolling onto her back before you've even let go of her. I've decided that some babies are "I can do it myself" babies while Ellie is a "you can do it for me" baby. :)
Ellie did an amazing job spending the weekend with 55 students at the Spring Retreat. She sat in her high chair in the middle of the dining area, surrounded by all those students. It was great :) We must have worn her out as she took long naps while at the retreat and then she slept an almost 15 hour night once we got home! While she did awesome, I wasn't prepared for how exhausting it would be to be leading the retreat with Noah, sharing a room with Ellie, getting lots of time connecting with students, staying up late and getting up early, etc. It's Wednesday and I'm still recovering. :)
ps. It's not letting me add pictures right now, hopefully I'll get to do that soon :)
