Matthew and Mia decided that since she is one and isn't walking yet, they would try to help the process along. We found out the other day, after several very confident steps to Justin, that she really can walk; she just chooses not to.
We had a fun party with family. We gave a big piece of cake to Ellie to devour just as we have the other two kids. She stuck her hand in it and with the most disgusted look on her face, yanked her hand away. She tentatively put some in her mouth and this picture is of her spitting it back out. After that, she wanted nothing to do with the blob on her tray and scowled at it the whole time.
