In the coldest, windiest times of winter, our kitchen and breakfast nook get the BEST sunshine ever. For just a few months, the sun is situated ever-so-perfectly.

When you add in Ella on her favorite perch, the counter, it also gives us this.

And this.

How did I get the sun to filter through my lens like that? Good question!

The last week has been an interesting one with our little power house. Her sleep has been restless. Last night we were awake more than we slept, for example. Eating any structured meal is, shall we say, exhausting. She was less than pleased about going to school this morning. On our commute she was either crying or singing "brown bear what do you see?", sometimes at the same time.

But when you look back on exactly one year ago, Ella perched in her favorite spot on that same kitchen counter...

...wow. Where did that pudgy little one go? Apparently, replaced by a confident, sassy, headstrong 2 1/2 year old. She is a joy full of surprises, no matter how (desperately) tired out she makes her old(er) parents.

Stay warm this weekend. Winter has definitely arrived in Ella-land.
