New Discovery

Ella is so funny to watch, because it seems like every day she discovers something new. At the end of last week she discovered that she can stand at the end of her crib and turn her light on and off. Last night I put her to bed at her usual 8:30 bedtime. John made yummy banana splits and we sat on the couch and watched the olympics. At 9:30 he took the dishes into the kitchen and I hear John in an upset tone (which he never uses) say, "What the hell are you doing?" At first I thought, "I'm not doing anything!" Then I realized he wasn't talking to me. I walked into the kitchen and looked at Ella's slightly cracked door. I didn't see anything unusual. John said, "just wait." Within a matter of seconds the light was turned on and Ella was giving us an innocent wave and saying "Hi". She was rapidly talking and singing to her baby doll while turning the light off and on for an entire hour! Of course we had to hurry and get the video camera. So for your viewing pleasure here it is...

I love your videos. I am going to figure out how to do them. It is so fun to see Ella's personality. I forgot how much I loved that stage.
I can't believe they sent you home! I hope everything goes well with your labor. We are so excited to see pictures of the babies!
