This summer, Ellie started school. She’s currently going three mornings a week and it’s been fantastic for her. She’s making friends, enjoying the independence and it’s making her much more confident and assertive.
The other day was the first time I got to take her to school and meet her teachers and classmates and I’m really happy with where she is. I’m very happy that we made the decision to have her go. Continue reading “Ellie’s first day at school”
We’ve known for almost two months now, but we’re now ready to announce that Ellie is going to be a big sister. In the spring (late April / early May), we’re going to welcome either Hannah Michelle or Jack William (Hank for now [Hannah + Jack]) into this world.
This was all planned, so we’re very excited to expand our family once more.
Time is flying, and we’re ever conscious of the fact that in one month, Ellie will be a year old. Now that she’s crawling and eating all sorts of solid food, she’s really becoming a “small person” and she’s so much fun to be around.
Ellie has now been “out” pretty much as long as she was “in” and she is just so much fun! She’s also getting a lot more devious: not sure how many more of these photos I’m going to be able to take with the stickers in shot.
Ellie received her first passport in the mail today. Her blue one was the first to arrive, which was to be expected I suppose, with it not having to travel very far, and her American citizenship already established. Hopefully her red one is not too far behind.
Two days ago, Ellie hit 7 months. It’s clear that she’s starting to teeth, she’s becoming more and more independent and she only naps twice or thrice a day now. She’s more and more fun, and more and more challenging each day. Loving her more than ever before.
