Good Evening! I just wanted to give an update on Ella...she only had one #2 diaper today and it wasn't nearly as bad as they have been the past few days. She ate all of her breakfast, lunch, and dinner so I think her appetite is back. So I think it's safe to say she's definitely on the mend. Thank you all for your prayers and concern! :-)

She is getting so close to walking! Here she is pushing her little car. She's going back and forth from the recliner to the coffee table...if she would just get a little bit more courage she would be walking for sure. I've been working with her for a long time now to get her to clap her hands and she finally did it today. It's so exciting when they reach a milestone that you've been practicing with them for so long. Also, she started saying "dada" about a month ago, but didn't associate it with anything. Today when Keith got home she reached for him and said "DADA!" I think Keith's heart just melted. :-) I got to experience her calling me Mama (so sweet!) a few months ago so I'm very happy for him that Ella is finally calling him by name.

I've been keeping my laptop in the living room so I can get work and scrapbooking done whenever I have a free minute. Ella has gotten into the habit of trying to get my mouse, card reader, basically anything she can get her hands on. It drives me nutso but I know it's my own fault for putting it in such a tempting place.

Finally, I wanted to share a couple of pictures of the "other" members of our family. Our dogs, Abby and Charlie, used to be our babies and were spoiled rotten. Needless to say, they don't receive quite as much attention as they used to. Anyways, when it's cold they like to huddle together in front of our space heater to stay warm. Little love bugs. :-)
