Ellie...Up Up Up


Last night, while I was putting Ellie to bed, I noticed something different about her. Now, don't get me wrong. I thought I detected a little thing a few weeks back, when I was getting her dressed. But this was a definite.

As part of her bedtime routine, I get her changed, and rather than man handle her, I request her assistance with some things. For instance, when it's time to remove her shirt, I give her my fingers, and she holds on as I lift her up, while repeating, "Up, up, up." Then once her shirt is removed, it's "Down, down, down time." Well last night she really decided to pull herself up during the "up, up, up" sequence, and lowered herself in the "down, down, down" sequence. At first, I couldn't believe it...so we did this over and over and over again. She was definitely into it. Then came "All the way, up!!!" with which she would extend her legs and support herself in a standing position. Awesome, no? My little Ellie os developing nicely.

Oh - a few weeks back, she'd raise her feet when I told her it was time to put on socks. Pretty cool...
