On Thursday, Ellie turned 18 months old!
To celebrate, we joined our friends at the zoo. OK, not really specifically to celebrate, but it was a fun way to spend the day anyway!
We started off by having fun looking at the crazy vultures. My friend and I decided we can understand why they’ve ended up being bad guys in so many Disney movies.
While at the zoo and looking at the tortoises, we met a little boy who was almost 18-months old. While I wasn’t looking, he gave Ellie a hug. She just looked at him and then burst into tears. Good work Ellie! That’s exactly what you’re supposed to do when a boy tries to touch you! 🙂
That afternoon, we had Ellie’s 18-month well-baby checkup. One of the questions our doctor asked me was if Ellie was enjoying being with other kids, particularly those who are a little bit older than her. I was able to give her an emphatic “Yes!”. She loves being with her friends! And Sharla and I had a great time watching our little girls together!
And for those inquiring minds who want to know, Ellie is currently 23 pounds, 12 ounces and 32.5 inches long.
