So, last weekend we had the stomach bug. GOOD TIMES.
I have much higher hopes for this weekend. Especially because this week has gotten progressively better. I don't know if she was still getting over the sickness or what, but Monday - Wednesday of this week, our little Ellie was a little stinker. Every day, she had a standard method of operation:
1. Wake up 1-2 hours earlier than usual
2. Demand breakfast IMMEDIATELY
3. Eat breakfast
4. Throw a fit
5. Play with something dangerous
6. Throw an even bigger fit when mommy takes the dangerous object away
7. Take a nap
8. Wake up in a bad mood
I was kinda going bonkers. But thankfully, this morning she woke up and was back to herself. I was very thankful for this. And tonight, we went to our church Fall festival, just like we did last year. Except last year, our little munchkin was about 3 months old and was an Elliephant.
Last year we pushed her around in the stroller and people ooh'd and aah'd over her and then we went home.
This year... she's 15 months old... and she's walking.
AND SHE'S A BUSY BEE
She is everywhere. Homegirl ain't posin' for no photos.
At the Fall festival, she waved at people and pet some ponies and some goats. She shared a cupcake with her daddy and took off running multiple times. She tried to climb into a jump-house inflatable thing with a bunch of 5 year olds. I pulled her away. She screamed.
My girl was ready to party.
Seriously though, it was so much fun. She had a head piece she was supposed to wear that had antennae but she wanted nothing to do with it. Sigh.
I can't imagine how it will be next year when she can actually eat candy :)
