With Sophie the Giraffe and Ellie the Elephant (who has taken photos with her since she was born).
Actually she is now 9 months old but I am a tad behind….so while my kids are on a road trip with their wonderful Auntie and Uncle, I am going to try catching up a bit. There is soo much to catch up on. Let’s start with a lovely little Ellabeth’s 8th month.
When Ella was 7 months old she… went apple picking

Enjoyed ringing a silver bell for her supper….(but not eating it….just smearing it on the tray)
Helped to carve her first pumpkin, enjoyed riding on mommy’s shoulders..

Learned to wave. Here she had just finished napping on the shoulder of one of her favourite’s Jani, when she woke up and saw me across a crowded room. It melted my heart. As one might imagine.

And her first caroling horse and carriage ride (during which she clearly did not approve of the raucous choir)

The next day she attended her first holiday parade. Again…impressed…not so much.
