September So Far

As always, time seems to be flying and I haven't been doing the greatest job at updating the blog!  We've been enjoying our September so far and have been having lots of end of summer beautiful weather before the cold is here to stay for awhile!

If you follow us on Instagram (I say "us" because it really is the Ellie & Willow show for the most part!), you probably know that Ellie started dance class and it just might be the cutest 45 minutes of my week.  I love watching her, and judging by how fast she ran into the room when her instructors opened the doors this morning, I'd say Ellie loves her class too! :)

I kinda want to blow that picture up poster size and hang it on the living room wall.  Too much? ;)

Ells also started speech recently! While she (somewhat surprisingly) tested within the average range for her age, she was taken in for a six month program because her auditory understanding was on the tippity top of the range while her verbal expression was on the low.  We get a little bit of "homework" every week and it's very much a learning process for all of us, but we are so excited for her and look forward to hearing everything she will soon be telling us!!  Coincidentally or not, she has been very chatty lately, mostly with a handful of the same words over and over again, but has been adding some new ones here and there too.  Also, she now almost always calls me "mommy!" instead of "mumma", which is just the cutest in my opinion.  Note the exclamation point because she is ALWAYS YELLING.

As for our little Lo Lo, she will be four months old next week and I hopefully be posting a little update then!  She is getting so, so big.  She rolled over for the first time last week, all four of us were in the living room together to witness it and I may or may not have teared up a bit.  The best part of seeing Lo grow and do new things might be seeing how Ellie reacts to it and how she cheers her on, just like Tyler & I do.  I'm so excited to have her help us feed Lo when we introduce solids, I know Ells will get a kick out of it! :)

I hope you're all enjoying your September so far and are soaking up the last few days of summer! :)
