Back at em'

Poor little Ellie has been so sick for the last 2 weeks, but she is feeling so much better now and is back to her normal active little self! That was the first time Ellie has gotten sick (besides feeling a little yucky after her shots) in 8 months and she got hit pretty hard for her first time, poor baby. The doctor put her on antibiotics and after about 2 weeks her cough and cold finally cleared up. So now we have our happy little girl back who can breathe and sleep again. (thank goodness!)

Ellie is cruising all over the place with her little walker, it is so fun to watch! I can't believe how big she is getting! She has already taken her first steps....at 8 1/2 months old! People keep telling us once she is walking, our lives are over... and I think that time will be here before we know it. Yikes! She'll be standing up holding onto a toy and then let go and take 2 steps while not holding onto anything and then reach for something else to grab onto. What a brave little thing!
Ellie's favorite thing to do is read her books. It is so cute! She'll just sit there forever reading her books, flipping through every page while talking the whole time.
We are having so much fun with Ellie! It just gets more and more fun the older she gets!

Ellie's cool scooter!

We have the greatest next door neighbors you could ever ask for! Jeremiah and I have really enjoyed getting to know this couple. On Christmas Eve, Steve and Renee (our neighbors) came over and said they had a Christmas present for Ellie. It was so sweet and thoughtful of them to think of her! They are the best! Check out Ellie takin a ride on her fun new toy that she loves! :)
(sorry it's so dark, we took this at night...we need to stop doing that!)
