I had dreamed when I signed Hunter up for soccer of me and Ella sitting on the sidelines and her being Hunter's biggest fan/cheerleader. HA HA HA HA!!! That is not the way it is going at all. She HATES sitting in her stroller, so when I finally give in and get her out she tries with all her might to squirm out of my arms (she may have low tone, but holy cow that girl is strong!!!) She cries, whines, and screams. I have a very brief moment of quiet from her while she eats her fruit chews that I bring, but then she gets mad again. Don't get me wrong, she does clap for Hunter every once in awhile, but she is only truly happy during breaks and half-time when she runs out on the field, turns toward the crowd and laughs, which of course we get the "awww, how cute" and the laughing back so it just fuels Ella's need to entertain. She is such a funny girl, but boy is she tiring!!!
Here she is before Hunter's game last Saturday. My friend Mary got her this Addidas outfit for her birthday, it's a bit big so I'm sure we will get 2 more years of wear out of it : ) And the color is perfect for me to spot her when she runs off!!! By the way, Ella has decided that everytime I get out the camera and say "look at me" she is going to make some goofy face at me- so here ya go!
