Ellie Bug

Isn't she just the cutest little thing you've ever seen?

She just blows me away everyday. She can be just the spiciest little stinker in the whole world one minute, and the next minute she is throwing her arms around my neck and giving me the best hug ever. In fact, I think she's figured out the power of the almighty hug.. now whenever she gets in trouble, her first reaction is to try for a hug. Cute, yes. Manipulative? Maybe a little. But we usually let her get away with it anyway.

Ellie really loves to be the life of the party. We went and did the race for the cure here in Detroit last weekend and while we were walking, there were several bands playing on the roadside. And guess what Ellie did every time we passed one of these bands?

She was certainly a distraction for the other racers, though I'm pretty sure they didn't mind (not that it would have stopped her).
Last but not least in the list of Ellie updates is the fact that she has learned how to take her pants off. And she's pretty excited about it.  More often than not when I leave her alone for a minute or two, this is what I find:

(She'll probably kill me in the future for publishing this photo)

On a related side note, the pediatrician informed me that we should start potty training Ellie earlier than planned since she has such sensitive skin. Not really too excited about this stage of life, but Ellie does seem ready for the challenge. So I guess I'll just have to get ready too. Any advice would be welcome.
