It would only seem fitting that Baby Girl would start feeling lousy when none of us feel like going out in the elements. Good timing, Ella! We spent a good deal of time laying around on Saturday and Sunday snuggling, watching some of her favorite shows.
And being a screwball...
She was able to work on her self-portrait skills and found a little spunk to play hairdresser with her Daddy-O.
Before every single sleep (nap or night), we read. It can often be a debate on how many books we'll read or how long the books will be. It can especially make naptime prep a drawn out stall routine. The last three days, she has singled out this book: "Let's read the Obama book, Mama." (With his inauguration just today, I find her timing impeccable.)
My parents bought it for her. It is a wonderful book and she marvels at the stories of thirteen significant Americans. Billie Holiday, Neil Armstrong and Albert Einstein are her favorites and I love her well-rounded interest. One day, she'll be reading in her window seat without my help. Until then, I will gladly snuggle up with her and lose my voice reading. (Sidenote: Larry is always a part of this if he's home, directed to sit in her window seat by bossy.)
