This 4th of July, we took a trip to MA and NH to visit family, attend a christening and enjoy the summer in New England.

Very randomly and unexpectedly, after favouring “hi” as her salutation of choice, Ellie started mimicking the word “hello”, repeating it back to us, and then saying it to her own reflection in the mirror. Continue reading “Learning to say hello [VIDEO]”
Boxing Day was much like Christmas Day, just a bit more low key. Ellie has once again surrounded by family, games, playing and laughter. Continue reading “Boxing Day”
Christmas Day was spent amongst great company, eating too much food, playing lots of games and opening presents.
All in all, it was a really enjoyable day and Ellie was on top form, making the most of the family she had around her. Continue reading “Christmas 2014”
