Ella turned one yesterday!! Her dark hair seems to be getting lighter and curlier by the day (the humid weather sure does help the curl factor). She' s standing, and taking a couple steps until she realizes that it's so much quicker for her to crawl. I think Ella has spent too much time watching Lydia and seems to be learning to climb quite well. She loves to climb up the stairs every chance she gets. She also enjoys standing on the rocking chair and rocking.
