1. Today Ella was at the table coloring, decorating, gluing, taping and cutting up paper. There was the usual mess of cut up pieces of paper, crayons, and glue stick lids under the table. I said something like, "Ella you have made a big mess." She just responded, "Mom, thats what kids do."
2. Yesterday morning I was upstairs getting Aubrey's clothes out for school and such. Ella went downstairs before the rest of us and when I came downstairs I noticed that ALL the lights were on, and I mean ALL of them. She had turned on every light, inside and out, every ceiling fan, every one of them in the entire house. She was beaming and said, "Mom, I turned all the lights on for you!" "Thanks Ella!:)" She was so proud. She has just recently gotten tall enough to be able to reach the light switches.
3. Yesterday we went to the driving range with Joey on his day off. He spent some time with her teaching her how to putt in the putting area. When they were finished, Ella came over to me and said, "I was teaching Daddy how to golf."
4. Just recently, she has decided to create her own language.The other day she lifted her shirt up, was sticking out her belly and dancing around the room. I said, "Ella, what are you doing?" She responded, "I'm femeshing my doomie!!" It sounded so bizarre that Aubrey and I just started laughing. She comes up with some interesting stuff this kid:)
Thanks for making us laugh Ella. We love you you silly and adorable girl.
