Ellie's eyes

This is my new favorite photo of Ellie. I love the look in her eyes. She looks like she could be about to do any number of things: tell a "funny joke" ("Knock, knock" "Who's there?" "Apple orange!!" Much laughter.);give me a spontaneous "I love you, Mommy!" and a hug; ask a question ("What time is it?" This is the most frequently asked question in our lives right now. Ellie wants to know what time it is approximately every 3 minutes.). She could be ready to tell me about something funny her imaginary sister, Aglan, or brother, Aladdin, said; or just want to snuggle. I love the age Ellie is right now. She is quickly becoming an individual with her own ideas, solutions to problems, plans for the day, opinions about wardrobe and interests. She has a genuine love for all people, animals and insects (usually) and I enjoy almost every second I get to spend with her.


  1. That's an awesome picture! Did you take it? I also LOVE that you said "I enjoy ALMOST every second I spend with her." I've been there! :)

  2. I did take it. I was rather proud of myself! I originally wrote EVERY second, but realized I wasn't being 100% truthful with that statement. Some of the seconds are not as good as others!
