A First....

I think I had my first real (though short) conversation with my daughter yesterday, it went like this....
We were sitting at the kitchen table having lunch, Ella, Chris and I and Ella says "Bubba go?" while holding her hands out shrugging
Me : "what?"
Ella: "Bubba go?" a bit louder and with a bit of sass
Me: "Chris did you hear that?"
Chris: "yeah, Ella what did you say?"
Ella: " BUBBA GO???"
Me: " Where did Bubba go?"
Ella: shakes her head yes
Me: "Bubba went bye-bye with nana."
Ella: "K"

I wanted to cry!!! Her first 2 spoken words together!!! Well, she has been saying "mere" this past week or so meaning come here, and points where she wants you, but this is two seperate actual words. HOORAY for Ella!!! That kid just makes me so proud!!!

Now here are some pics of the goofball I am so proud of....

Here she is wearing her brother's underwear on her head (clean ones THANK GOD!!) she put them on by herself.









Now here they are playing in Nana's cabniet one night after dinner.

Ahhhh! That made me tear up! The conversation and those long ponies--what did I do cutting off my gal's hair???!!! Although, Ella's hair always seems nicely coifed. She must be a tidge more patient than Georgia (or I)!!
