Window Watching

We recently changed some furniture around in our bedroom. We put our bed (which is actually just a queen size mattress sitting on the floor) next to the window. Ella is LOVING the new layout. She can stand up on the mattress and see outside. Often times I walk by and all I can see are her little legs coming out from behind the curtain. She spends a lot of time there. The funniest part is that the only thing outside the window is a ugly bush and the back wall of the apartment garages. She finds it mesmerizing.

Obsession of a Hippo

Last week I went to some great Second-Hand stores with Ella. My friend Angela came along (Ella calls her G-La). Angela and Ella are special friends. While at one of our bargain shop stops Ella fell in love with this Hippo toy. Angela noticed that Ella had taken a major liking to this toy and bought it for her for a great price.
It is now Ella's favorite toy!!! She is obsessed!
