Catch Me if You Can!

Ellie's got a new game that we started this week. She's big on trying to get from where ever she is, into the kitchen where the dog's water bowl is. Well, we've turned this into chase, which can be played anywhere in the house.

Mind you, Ellie doesn't walk unassisted yet. So, chase tends to be a very slow game. Ellie starts the game by giving you a mischievous look. Then she turns away and starts to scoot / crawl / inch-worm with all the speed of a Galapagos tortoise, smiling and laughing all the way. Dad gets up to his hands and knees and chases after smiling and calling "I'm gonna get you!" After an exhausting 30-60s of chase, Dad finally catches up and scoops Ellie into the air. "I got you!"

And all rejoice with laughter and smiles.

Since I don't have a picture of chase, yet, here's Ellie at Easter:
