My littlest peanut has been busy in the past couple weeks. Between Christmas and New Year's she started walking. She still hasn't convinced herself that walking is always the fastest method of movement; so, she hasn't dropped crawling altogether yet.
Check out this beautiful new smile. In the past three weeks, Ella nearly tripled the number of teeth in her mouth. Yes, she has been a drooling, chewing, sometimes less than 100% happy for a couple of those days. It didn't help that she also has a cold on top of teething. Thankfully no ear infections for over a month.
She's quickly claimed a new tooth brush for those new pearly whites. She loves brushing her teeth while she is teething. The toothbrush is easy to get back by those one year molars and gnaw on for comfort.
Ella is still a petite little baby. She finally made it to 20 pounds (plus an couple ounces) putting her in the 10th percentile for weight. She's 30.5 inches tall putting her in the 50th percentile for height.
Her favorite toy is her glowworm that she got from St. Nick in December. She considers it her baby and gives it lots of hugs and kisses. Ella has also been watching her sister, Lydia a little too often because she is quite the climber. Ella likes to climb and stand on everything: shopping carts, rocking chairs, the play kitchen, furniture...
