So Much Joy

"...Your laugh, baby
To me it’s just like helium
I breathe it in until I am
Ten feet off the ground

Oh, your laugh darlin’
It warms me up like sunshine
It is golden, it is so fine
Baby, when you laugh..."   --Carolyn Arends--

At 4 months, Ellie...

* wears 6 month clothing and size 3 diapers.  She is a long baby!
* goes to bed around 7/730 and sleeps through the night with a little snack before I head to bed      at 1030/11.  We are so very blessed!
* wakes up from her sleeps happy and calls out from her crib with a voice like "Mommy, I'm ready now..."
* had a weekend sleepover with her Bestemor and Bestefar while Marco and I were at BreakForth
* had her first set of shots and we both did okay :)
* enjoys tummy-time and playing with her Clutch Cube 
* is happy to sit in her bouncy chair while I have my breakfast or make supper
* has the best smile and is full of giggles and laughs
* thinks her Daddy is pretty fun
* is so content
* had a visit from Grandma and Grandpa de Andrade from Abbotsford, BC

Outside Our Window

I woke up this morning to it looking like this outside our window and the weather report saying it is -30C with the wind chill:
So it is a good day for a warm oven, rhubarb muffins,
and a second cup.
Hope you are keeping warm!

Monday Mornings

I love Monday mornings because of moments like these and a little girl who brings so much joy.
