First things first.....please keep Ella in your prayers as tomorrow we head off to our monthly visit with the oncologist to make sure that there are no bad cells growing in her blood...i.e. leukemia cells! I get nervous for every visit for fear that this will be the time we get the bad news. But she seems so healthy so I just hold on to that!!!
Secondly....now that she is pretty much crawling (she still refuses to bend her left leg when she crawls and sticks it out to the side) Ella is everywhere!!! Her favorite toy seems to be the little white thing on the end of all the door stoppers. She has found almost every one in the house and pulls it off effortlessly. I guess this is one time that I am glad she doesn't put anything in her mouth. I was so use to being able to put her down somewhere and have her be in that same room when I came back but now she almost always moves to another room. And the cat food and water......her radar takes her right to it, always!! I put it down at night and when she naps but sometimes forget to pick it up before she sets off. I haven't found a good permanent place to put it that she can't reach...oh well!! She is obsessed with the cat and follows it whenever she can. She is NOT NICE to the cat but the dumb thing never runs away (at least not until she has been tortured a few times) In the picture below, she has the cat cornered behind the coffee table in between the couch and wall. I knew it was only a matter of time before there was trouble. I think she ended up with a nice little scratch (probably while I was taking the picture)
