Weekly Video Post

In the past two weeks, Ellie has suddenly become quite conversant on the phone. She has always enjoyed "talking on the phone", but it always had to be in quotes before because she mostly listened and smiled without saying much beyond the occasional "Hunh!" Then, quite spontaneously she became just as much the chatterbox on the phone as she is in person. Any call will start out with the inevitable discussion of airplanes and helicopters (very popular topics!) and move on as her eyes rest on items of interest in the immediate surroundings. I caught a morning conversation with Mary on video and cut it down so you can get the enjoyment without the lulls and repeated descriptions of things Mary obviously cannot see or reference. And Mary, now you'll know what she was trying to show you!

How precious. Although I thoroughly enjoyed the tour Ellie gave me while talking to me, it is great to see what she was telling me about. Thank you so much. Miss and love y'all.

Adorable! I also have to note I noticed a bit of an accent in there - how exciting! Makes the fact she's not growing up in the US a bit more real to me. I'm so inspired to try and call so I can get a personal tour too!

I'm happy to be headed to hawaii soon but I also feel sad - it's so close to you but just far enough I still can't visit...
