Today was one of those days....

Ella was a handful today. Crying, not eating, not sleeping, having fits.... from 6:30 AM until 6:00 PM. But she is starting to understand more. Yesterday the Veggie Tales "Hairbrush" song came on and she ran around pretending to brush her hair! She loves my hair brushes and gets them out of the drawer all the time (she can open it, get the brushes out, and then shuts the drawer!). I was just amazed that she connected the song with the hairbrushes.

She is also getting tall. Yesterday afternoon she came around the corner with a yogurt cup and spoon in hand. I had left them on the table after lunch because she had only eaten half of it. So there she was trying to eat with the spoon all by herself (and getting yogurt EVERYWHERE!). Apparently she can reach further than I thought.

Today I left a kitchen mitt on the counter (again, too close to the edge) and she came out to the living room -- ready to help cook!

P.S. These were taken AFTER a major fit over the fact that I wouldn't let her have the camera that I had gotten out to take her picture.

Ahhh... the joys of childrearing. :) Then she smiles, snuggles in to mommy for a hug and kiss and the screams (which will continue to get louder and louder, mind you) quickly fade away. Thank goodness for the good days!!
