Here is Ellie's "please and thank you" song that she learned at school. Enjoy!

Dual trampoline

This pretty telling of our lives these days... even though the video is from when we were still down in Lafayette. Just found it.
Don't worry, the trampoline shenanigans have traveled with us to Rockford.

Convo with Ellie

Little Miss Ellie is keeping us on our toes these days.... has been for some time, to be honest.
She's helping me write this post, actually

Mom: What's your favorite thing to do these days?
Ellie: Umm, eat popcorn.
Mom: Who is your favorite friend at school?
Ellie: Jordan!!
Mom: Why?
Ellie: Because I like Jordan.
Mom: What is your favorite game to play?
Ellie: Barn game.
Mom: What's your favorite thing about our new house?
Ellie: We have a purple room!!

...But just today when we were pulling into the garage, Ellie said to me: "Mom, we have a cool yard."

Dad: What's your favorite color?
Ellie: Green ... and orange!
Dad: What's your favorite food?
Ellie: I like pa'sghetti!

Now she's tickling Katie mercilessly. Gotta go.

Katie: 16 months!

Our little Katie has had a busy month, making more progress with walking (but still being pretty lazy about it...), learning new words and cracking us up with her frequent laughter.
Her personality is coming out in full force these days, for good and for bad (when food is delayed or things are taken away from her...).

Got a short video this weekend to show off some of her latest tricks. Enjoy!
