Fun Weekend With a One-Year-Old

Ellery stayed the weekend with GPa, GramVi, and Michael.  We all had a great time.
She just talked our ears off with her cute little jibber-jabber.
I have a video or two taken on our i-phones but I can't figure out how to put it in the blog.
Anybody care to help me????? Comments are encouraged in this regard.
This little doll of ours is SUCH a good sleeper. Goes about 10 or 11 hours at night and then takes a couple 1 - 2 hour naps each day.  I didn't feel tired at all after the weekend. We did great.
Of coarse it helps that she falls back asleep after having a drink of milk on some mornings.  Yes, I can be a lazy girl in the morning. (Thanks GPa for making sure this got documented)
Ellery also helped us in the yard, paying attention to everything we were doing. We were gardening, washing cars,
fertilizing roses,
and putting air in car tires, and her stroller tires as well. We went on long walks with my friends, shopping for plants at the nursery, shopping for food at the grocer, going to church, visiting her cousins, uncle and aunt, going to 2 wedding receptions in one night, and dancing to the music all the while.
This picture doesn't show how well Miss E truly eats. She tries nearly everything and chows down. This girl gets all her vitamins and will be a healthy specimen.
Thanks to her parents for allowing us to care for this cute little cherub for a few days. She missed them, but is well adjusted enough to handle them being away and not have a meltdown in the process.


  1. We thought she was absolutely darling! And she sounds like a dream to watch. You are one lucky g'ma.


  2. Fun pics of what looks like a fun weekend!

    As for the video going from phone to computer so you can post it...if you have your e-mail sync'd with your phone, all you have to do is send yourself an e-mail using your phone (including the video as an attachment) and voila! You can open said e-mail on your computer and save the video to your hard drive.

    Hope that helps...if not, go to the Apple store downtown and one of the techs there should be able to walk you through it.

  3. i am JEALOUS!!! send the grandkids here for a weekend so i can play!!

  4. she is kind of a dream child. why didn't we stop @ her?? :) glad she was good for you guys & thanks SO much for watching her! kisses*
