The Elephant Returns

The Rowe Family elephant made the rounds this year. Ellie received it pre-birth at one of her many baby showers, then she passed it along for her Great Great Grandma Rowe's 94th birthday. Ellie thought it was very cute with its red toenail polish....cute enough to eat, that is.

Exersaucer Attack

What a great toy!! Ellie loves her exersaucer that Granny & Papa got her for Christmas. When she first started playing in it, she was still a little wobbly, and only grabbed objects that her hand happened to randomly hit. But she's definitely getting the hang of it now. The challenge has now become trying to get each of the toys into her mouth.

Roll With Me

We're working hard to master rolling over. We have every indication that Ellie completely understands what to do, she's just messing with her mom and dad. In fact, we think she secretly rolls around in her crib during the night, but always makes sure to return to her starting position before we get her up in the morning.

Look at those dimples!

Ellie and her Daddy...what a couple of cuties! Of course, I may be a biased mommy.

Read me a story!

First Grandma reads a story to Ellie and her cousin, Kameron. Then Kameron reads the story to Grandma and his new baby sister, Paige. Paige is only a week old, and Ellie is very excited to have a cousin so close to her own age. We're sure that they'll be great friends growing up.

Sleepy Head

Doesn't she look so peaceful? We have to enjoy it while it lasts, because before we know it we'll be singing "Rubber Duckie" for the 20th time today.

I said "Sit Up" not "Spit Up"

Ellie is doing her best to learn to sit up. She's getting some strong ab muscles, but the balance part is still a struggle. It will only be a matter of time before she masters it, and can sit next to Daddy to watch baseball, football, and golf.
