I wasn't feeling very well this weekend, so Ellie and I hung close to home. Greg's brother Scott and his wife Lisette had sent Ellie "Baby Signing Time" and we had a great time watching it. I need to start using the signs as I talk with Ellie. I hear it really works! Robyn was in town for the weekend, so Saturday afternoon she, mom, and grandma came over to hang out. Robyn was really cute with Ellie, and bounced her for quite a while. My grandma also took a long turn holding Ellie. Ellie loves being held by her great-grandma!
Cassie and Rachel discovered that Ellie really likes stuffed animals. I went to my favorite bargain place, and got 4 cute, cuddly stuffed animals at D.I. for 75 cents each. After a trip through the washing machine, they are sanitized and ready to go. Ellie loves the bunny the best. There are so many textures: she loves to rub the satin in the ears, and pull on the ribbons, and stroke the fuzzy fur, and chew on the arms, legs, & ears. She especially loves to put the bunny close to her face, or covering her face, which makes me nervous. I always keep a close eye on her when she is playing with it.
And today I feel all better. What a great husband!
