Ellie loves going to church. She loves running around in the big building and meeting new people. Meanwhile for Brandon and I church has become a bit of a stressful experience. The first Sunday in our new ward in Washington Ellie and a new little friend she met decided that they wanted to help the lady at the front play the piano.... we weren't quite fast enough and sure enough they helped play! Anyway, we are counting down the months until Ellie goes into the nursery so we can actually listen again!
Ellie has her first backyard.... and she loves it! Her favorite thing to do is pull the moss (which we have LOTS of because we live in Washington!) off the rocks. Here is some dirt! Ellie has learned how to
Ellie went to a friends house last week and they had a little cozy coupe. She loved it! She didn't want to get out of it. Ever since I have been looking for a cozy coupe for Ellie. Well we got one yesterday and we put it out in the backyard. She hadn't seen it yet. I was trying to feed her breakfast in her highchair and she kept on reaching for the slider doors and grunting to get out of her highchair. I had no idea what she wanted or what she was trying to do. I looked outside..... the cozy coupe was within eyesight.. she had found it already and couldn 't wait to play with it!
Today Ellie and I went to the Woodland Park Zoo with Kacey & Jack Karren. Jack is a about 5 months older than Ellie and they love playing together. Ellie's favorite thing at the zoo was the goats.... yes I realize we could have just gone to a petting zoo to the see a goat but that is what she wanted.
The highlight was to see the 6 maybe 7 foot tall bear that was playing in the water right in front of us. Ellie was very confused as I was trying to convince her that the creature she was seeing was a bear. You see... her favorite stuffed animals are her bears.... she has about 6 of them in different shapes and sizes. Her absolute favorite are two small pink ones. We call them both simply by the name Bear. So when I was calling this HUGE 7 foot creature Bear.... she was very confused.
It was a perfect day in Seattle for a trip to the zoo and we had a great time.
