At the hospital, Ellie never got tummy time. The poor little thing was all wires and had stitches in her belly. I think Ellie misses the "no tummy time" aspect of hospital life. Here is Ellie, in deep distress over why in the world we keep plopping her down on her belly.

At home, we get to go for walks. While the calendar says that late March qualifies as Spring, Mr. Weatherman says otherwise. Ellie gets bundled up before walks, which seems strange with the flowers blooming and birds chirping. I missed the photo op, but the other day, there was snow on the dogwood tree out front. Snow!
|(Flowers. Yet I was wearing a hat and gloves!?)|
|(I love Ellie's butterfly.)|

Life at home is nice because I can update this blog while Ellie sleeps. I even went to the grocery store with Ellie yesterday, because we needed salad and paper towels. I learned that walking with Ellie in the stroller helps her sleep, which will be good for my attempts at getting in shape for the Marine Corps Marathon!
Life at home means opportunities to attempt to style Ellie's hair. They fail. The baby brush just doesn't cut it at all!
|(Staring in disbelief that I'd call this hair "uncontrollable.")|
|(I love those big eyes.)|
Have I mentioned how much I love having a wireless baby? I'll mention it again. I love having a wireless baby!
|(Check out the wireless feet!)|
At home, there's room for a giant elephant. Scratch that. There's not room for a giant elephant, but we have one anyway. I tried to get Ellie to pose with her new friend, who we named "Elroy the Elephant."
