This is it! See the pride in her face?!Todd watched me upload these pics, and loved this one! He usually doean't have much of an opinion, but he really liked this picture of his girly. I need Jessi to ad a little Photoshop magic to darken and enhance the contrast and add actions, and blah blah blah, but this is what you get! Ellie Bellie even let MeAsson take her into the ocean and eventually up to her waist. WOW! One of our very favorite places on the grounds is this swing! Ellie wakes up in the morning and it is only a matter of time before we are hearing, "swing. swing. wagon!" Oh, and let's not forget "boots", "Crocs". SO not only are we doing great on the beach, we are also now playing in the pool! This is Gabbi with DeeDee and Granddad! They had a good visit with the grandgirlies. Having them was great anyway, but hey, if we are just being honest... the extra sets of hands were GREAT! One to swim with Ellie. ONe to swim with Gabbi. One to feed each one. One to carry each one down the boardwalk. One to wrestle Ellie into her carseat (another of our newest struggles!) One to help make bottles. One to help with diapers, One to make dressing changes during the day. One to hunt down lost bows!
We sure are going to miss them! This little star is Gabbi's favorite toy at the moment! They were bought for Ellie to use in the pool for squirt toy play. Gabbi has overtaken them! We take them to restaurants, the pool, and even use them to pacify her around the condo. I love that star!
Ellie has gotten so brave that she is now throwing her head back to get her hair wet and pouring buckets of water over her own head!
Oh, and JUMPING OFF THE SIDE of the POOL!!!
And would you just look at this newfound happiness and pleasure?! Yippeeeeee! Now we can have some real fun!
Ellie got the turtle. Gabbi got the crab. And she couldn't have liked it better! One last pic of both my girls before I hit the hay.
and a repeat, because I love her funny little expression in this one!
Keep you posted!
