Yesterday morning started off with a lovely tea-party - hosted by none other than miss Ella. Back when Harrison was first born, she used to throw tea-parties every morning. It was pretty entertaining for us at the time because it was the first time she really interacted with us during play. Now, a year later, the fun continues but Ella has really upped her game. Instead of using an old crate, Ella has a cute little table she got for her birthday. There are also two extra chairs for her 'guests' as well as some new play food - including the homemade felt ice cream cones which are coming to the blog soon!
Here's a few snapshots of our Friday morning tea-party.

|Posing for me|
|On today's menu - birthday cake, sandwiches, pizza and cucumber...|
|L to R: Elephant, Elmo, baby Jessica, baby Rosie, bunny, Strawberry, baby Lily. They all have to share that one little brownie on the plate...suckers.|
A little later in the morning, after Harry woke up from his nap, I packed up a snack and we hit the road for the library. As I was getting our things together, Harry decided to get up to some good old-fashioned trouble-making. At this point, I don't expect anything less from him! :D
|How many things can I pull out of the cupboard in 10 seconds...|
|He knows what these are.|
|Here Ella is 'petting him' as she calls it, and trying to get him to put everything back. She's quite the leader.|
|Posing for Mom - he is unaware of any problem.|
Lastly, something exciting from both Ella and Harry.
Ella: Has finally mastered the concept that holding up two fingers equals two, while holding up three fingers equals three. For quite awhile, she held up two fingers and called it three. I'm glad that's straightened out!
|Two cookies, please!|
Harry: Has been taking many steps lately! We don't have anything on video..of course..but I have it permanently etched in my mind. The other day he walked from the bathtub all the way out into the hallway. He will also take three to four steps on his own to go from his toy to the couch. Very exciting!
Well, that's about all for today. I hope to have something cute to share tomorrow - for Fathers' Day!
