You thought this was going to be a sappy love post about Nik and me, didn’t you?
Instead, today we’ll feature Ellie and her little friend, P!
P is just three months older than Ellie. It’s been fascinating to watch how differently they are hitting their developmental milestones. For example, P is amazing verbal (vast vocabulary, really well-developed grammar, etc.) yet doesn’t seem to care much yet about dressing herself. Ellie, on the other hand, is insistent on doing almost everything for herself but still uses relatively limited vocabulary and the rare two-word sentence here and there. They are the perfect example of how children develop so differently and yet both so well, each in their own way!
P’s family lives very close to us and we’re blessed by having someone close by who we can call up and play with on a moment’s notice if we’re bored or need some companionship.
Today, I had the fun of watching P, Ellie, and another friend, A (seen here) play Ring Around The Rosy in the nursery at our church’s moms’ group. I’m so glad that Ellie is growing old together with these great friends!
