On Thursday, we celebrated Ella's 15 month milestone with a trip to the zoo with our friends, Roz and Katie. The girls (Roz 5 months older) were dressed up in their matching outfits, all the way down to their pink Chuck Taylor high tops!
We spent a lot of time hanging with the apes and monkeys. The girls were fascinated by them. I'm not certain the feeling was mutual.
Ella is going through some changes the last week or so. If I had to guess, and I've been doing a LOT of that, I'd say she's frustrated. Although she babbles and sings constantly, her ability to communicate what she wants is not quite there. (Even though her signing is getting better each day.) Ella's legs are getting stronger and she's standing up much better in the last few days. But crawling?? She could take or leave it. Scooting around at break-neck speed is her preferred mode of transportation.
And she is her mother's daughter, as displayed in the next series of photos.
Here's hoping these two enjoy each other as much as the two mommies do! Have a great weekend everyone. H, L & E
