Whack a mole

So, I mentioned that Ella has no need to walk. Let me show you her preferred manner of travel.

Notice she winds up by the window? It snowed this morning! Yay. If it's going to be the tundra, it could at least snow, as far as I'm concerned. 

Today I was in the living room and had just got her comfortable with some blocks when I heard the rapid slap, slap, slap, of her little hands whacking the floor accompanied by panting as she crawls so fast she gets out of breath. She was headed for the kitchen, but by the time I got there, she had rounded to corner again and was going down the hall. It seems she had decided to do some laps. Before she could finish her loop, she was finally distracted by our dvd collection which someone had put away and which needed to be spread on the floor again. I tell ya. I can barely keep up with her these days. Last night at dinner she was rescued from Lucie's water bowl only to go straight for the old batteries in the bottom of the pantry, and then the open and dirty dishwasher. I am in a constant game of whack a mole. Here are some photos of her caught in the dilemma of how to both play with Daddy's antique radio and the Christmas tree at the same time:

It is exciting to see her so enthusiastically exploring though, she is so proud of herself, and what can I say, so am I!
