Another Friend For Ella


A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I met a gal in a restaurant with a little guy with Ds. Well today, Haden and his mom came over for a little playdate. He is almost 15 months old and so a little over 3 months younger than Ella. It was so fun to watch them interact. He was shy at first as once again, Ella circled her prey. Eventually he started moving around in his little tummy scoot way and she kind of followed. There were a few times when they actually interacted with each other but most of it was just kind of hanging out near each other. Of course, getting Ella to sit still for a head on picture was almost impossible and then getting them to both smile wasn't going to happen at all!! Ella isn't really ever around kids her own age, typical or not, so it was really exciting for her to be able to see another little person like herself.

plays with the cell phone. Note the innovative stair blocker
in the background!!


Here, let me stick those keys up your nose for you!!
(but, hey, they are interacting at least!!)



"Gentle, Ella, Gentle"

some hair while he isn't looking)

Wow what lovely pictures, and I love your comments!! I actually burst out laughing when I was reading them and had to go back and closely inspect the pics again, you definately have the comments bang on! How nice for you as well as Ella to have a friend nearby to interact with. Just wondering how much does Ella weigh? Touch wood she looks well and sooo cute. She's always in my prayers.

Oh he is CUTE. I am soooo glad you are finding more kiddos over there in Cali! That makes such a difference to have other families close by to relate to and play with. Ella is getting so big...crazy how fast they grow, especially when you don't see them. Oh I miss it over there...we soooo need another Cali trip! Miss and love you guys!
