+Tillman is staying with my parents at "camp" for the time being. He was not a big fan of Ellison pulling his hair and ears all the time. I did not want that to turn into something more so he is away away at "camp". He is enjoying himself...running through the woods and swimming in the pooI. I miss him terribly and hope that when Ellison starts walking (and not pulling hair so much) he can come back.
+ We are going to Murrells Inlet this weekend....just for Saturday but I can not wait!
+ Ellison is walking now...a few wobbly steps at a time. He can cruise around the couch or tables with ease now. He will be running before we know it.
+ Ellison has two new favorite things....the song "Bingo" and "typing" on our laptop. Loves both of them.
+Not sure if everyone saw, but I accomplished my January goal!!! Only 11 more :) February's goal is going to take a little more time.
+ Have any of you tried J. Crew's minnie pants? I have 2 pairs and I wish I could wear them everyday. They fit perfectly, and that is saying a LOT. I have such a hard time finding pants that fit. My hip/waist ratio is a little, how can i say this, on the different side :) My waist is really small and my hips are not. I got the size 4 in the Minnies and they fit PERFECT. (just for reference I wear a size 28 in all J Crew jeans)
+Ellison has perfected 3 words now..."dada", "mama", and "baaa" (like a sheep) This age is SO cool. I will be honest, having a newborn is hard and sometimes not really fun, but this age...I wish he could stay this age for years. I like that he can do somethings himself, but still needs me for most things. I love making him smile and laugh. I still can't believe in 10 short weeks he will be 1 year old....hold me, someone.
+ My mama came to take care of Ellison last Thursday, since I had a conference in Columbia. Seeing those two (Ellison and my mom) together makes my heart beat out of my chest. They both love each other so much. I am so glad that my mom is such a BIG part of Ellison's life even though she lives over 2 hours away. Thank you mama...we all love you so much!!!
+My brother and best friend both graduate in May. My brother with a master's degree in Construction Science from Clemson and my best friend with a doctorate in veterinary medicine from Ohio State. I can not wait to see both of them walk across the stage. They both have worked incredibly hard for these degrees. Plus I get to visit Columbus for the first time too...win win
