We have ourselves a crawler!
For the first time today, Ellie crawled while on her knees, rather than the army crawl on her belly that she's mastered in the last few weeks.
She still alternates between the two, but as the day went on today she started to be more heavy on the knee crawling than the army crawling. It's hilarious, she goes on her knees until she gets so excited to get where she's going that she just wiggles her legs too much, and they fall out from under her, and all of a sudden she's on her belly. Then she goes a little ways like that, gets back up on her knees, goes a little ways more, and then repeats the whole process. I love watching her learn :)
Video to come.
Also, pictures coming of her yoga poses. We call her Yoga Baby. She does yoga poses after she wakes up, so nearly every time we go get her, she's in some interesting pose. Usually downward dog, except rather than holding her weight up with her hands, she uses her head, and then uses her hands to play with her blankets. Must take after her grandma (Ben's mom) in that way, since she's a yoga instructor. So funny :)
Also, I can't leave this post picture-less....so I'm using this post as a perfect place to put a bunch of random pictures from my phone that haven't gotten on the blog yet because none of them in themselves merit a post, but they're all fun!
Ellie looking cool in my aunt's sunglasses, we babysat my cousin for a few hours this last weekend, and so yes, that's an epic fort in the background. Well, a small portion of it.
Ellie's first experience in a fort, with Uncle Danny (who came to visit the same day)
Our little valentine :)
A few weeks ago, we (meaning Ben, Ellie and I) went on a double date with Kelly and Josh (and Jaden!) Here's some pics form that:
