Sugar & Spice & Everything Nice…

4 Oct

My days staying at home with Ella are far from perfect or always happy.  But I’ve been savoring the days and moments with her lately.  She is so much fun right now; a smiley, happy, playful girl.  She laughs so much and is learning things so quickly.  She has learned to say “cracka” to indicate that she wants some sort of food (everything is “cracka”), she nods and shakes her head to let us know if she does or does not want something, she gives hugs and kisses and pats and snuggles.  Her fine motor skills are improving rapidly; she stacks things constantly and is great at putting on lids and putting coins in the piggy bank.  She is funny and her laugh is contagious.  Even when it’s something we probably shouldn’t be laughing at to encourage her.  She is so sweet.  She sits nicely to watch Wheel of Fortune or read books.  She pats the dog gently (most of the time!).  I love watching her learn and be fascinated by the way things work.  Ella loves to play with anything we are doing, so she has already developed an interest in computers and music and XBOX controllers.  

Every day is different and, though not always easy, amazing.  I can’t wait to find out what Ella will do next and what I will learn from her.
