Interesting blog post title, eh?? well, let's see why I named it that, shall we?!
Above: That would be Ellie with a couple of college girls she befriended on her first day at the beach. She's so shy!
So, while Staci, Madi, and Gabs swam around in the pool, Ellie was hanging with her sorority sisters.
They were carrying her around like they'd known her forever. And she just hung out with them like they were her new family.
Suzy got to witness all of this craziness.
They would walk by the pool on the way to the beach and yell, "Heeeey, Ellie!!" And she'd run over and talk to them. I swear this kid is a hoot.
Gabs is still trying to protect the big girl pose.
And it is pretty cute when there is Nutella smeared all over her face!
yep, just eating it straight off the butter knife.
I told everybody else to just step away from this jar of Nutella and let my baby girl claim this one as her own.
Madi, aka puffy-kini, was just watching all the craziness unfold. I could just SEE me trying to get Ellie Sue to wear a bikini like this. She will only wear mismatched bikinis at this point, because she thinks that is what all the big girls are doing. I told Staci she is lucky in that she just says, "here, put your foot in here" and Madi complies. We have to go to BATTLE to get her dressed for the day!
Oh... you know... just hot tubbin with some pals.
But I do get to dress this little angel. She is only recently developing an opinion on things. Most of the time it is emulating her big sister.
Do you think my baby girl likes Nutella?!
Well, she does. A LOT! I mean, what a great day? Swimming pool, cousin, chocolate by the spoonful, college friends, and hot tubbin.
