I have been having a terrible time keeping everyone posted. I keep thinking things will slow down—that the craziness is only temporary. I guess I just need to accept that it isn't a phase. My life is now insane and I have to do twelve things at a time just to keep up. Brady has been gone all week for work and is coming back tomorrow (a day early)! I went into the office Tuesday-Friday and am taking on a little extra work for some undetermined duration (a week? a month?)... and hopefully when it's over, I can have a little time to myself to do some of the things I did before Ella came along—like paint, make some books, take some non-baby photos. We'll see... but back to the main character of our story.
This morning, Ella added another word to her vocabulary: sunglasses, though she says it "sunglass." We were playing with my sunglasses and then got out hers to try on... within a few moments, she was in on the conversation too. It. Was. So. Cute. She continues to amaze me with her non-stop talking, animated gestures, and general silliness. What a wonderful little girl!
p.s. If you're in the DC-area, I highly recommend that you go to Crafty Bastards on Sunday. Hopefully we'll see you there!
