I ended up finding a little mug for Ella to use to drink her hot chocolate, so I brought down both of our mugs with a little dish of marshmallows and a spoon. Ella set up her little chair next to the coffee table and started eating the marshmallows right away. I showed her how to put them in her mug and she got a little carried away. We had to pull some back out so she could put them in my mug too - it was also a lesson in sharing ;).
After she devoured the marshmallows, I tried to show her how to drink from her mug but it wasn't too easy. She kept sticking her tongue into the cup! Eventually I got her a little straw and that was much better. Here are some funny pics of her with her drink as well as a couple other pics from the morning.
|Her new winter placemat...she's very big on placemats|
|She will often make the potato heads and then line them up and ask me to take a picture...as she's done here. You can tell the ones she made herself and the ones I helped her with!|
