Kids do the darndest things...

Yesterday I was tossing a balloon back and forth with Ella. She's getting better at catching, but she sometimes wouldn't look at it and it would just fall to the ground. I told her to keep her eye on the ball. She promptly put the balloon up to her face and said, "Like this? Like this, Mommy?" The best part was the eagerness and enthusiasm in her voice. She is such a character.

At least you started with a balloon and not a baseball.

Well hello there! I just found your blog via the relief society one. Thought I'd stop by and say hi!

That's hilarious! Yep, Jason has a point. Good thing you started with a balloon!

I can see her doing that - she loves to play catch with you - balls, balloons, blankets, you name it. Maybe she'll be the next great softball player in the world!
She's so funny.

Literal is an important word to consider when giving your children directions, isn't it? Ella is about the most enthusiastic, fun little girl! Did she get any better with her catching?
Love you all...
