We Are Back!!!

Hello To All!!!

We are back home. Whew, 25 days gone it feels like an eternity but it also went by all to fast. Let me tell you though, we got an incredible amount of stuff done! I will write more about our adventures later (it's after 1AM and I'm tired!)
I just wanted to do a quick brag post about Ella. In the 25 days that we were gone she learned quite a bit!! She now.......
- can cruise (walk holding on the the couch etc)
- throw a ball
- blow kisses
- pretends to talk on the toy phone
- crawls up on all fours instead of belly crawling
- dances ( the cutest thing I have ever seen, she kind of does the twist)
- claps with her feet ( every time she would throw the ball we would say "yay" and she would clap her feet together, it even makes the clapping sound!!)
- yesterday on the airplane she finally decided to start clapping her hands, we have been working on that one for months!!!
- and finally she is walking pretty good when you hold on to her hands!!
I am so proud of her!!! It's funny how much more you appreciate every little thing with her!

Tomorrow we are heading up to Lawton, Oklahoma for her pre-op appointments and then Wednesday she is getting tubes in her ears. I am not the least bit worried about the actual tubes part, it's the anesthesia that kind of freaks me out. Anyhow, I probably will not be on for a couple of days, we are going to be super busy!!!
