Hop! Hop! Hop!

I absolutely love discovering the things that my daughter knows. For a long time, she's know what a bunny rabbit is: "hop, hop, hop," she tells me, bouncing up and down.

The other day after dinner, we went out to the infamous swing set for a quick ride in a swing -- not that there can every be a quick ride with Ellie involved -- and out in the middle of the back yard was a little "hop, hop, hop." It, of course, ran away before we could get anywhere near it.

This past weekend being Easter, we spent the weekend with the in-laws. Before church, Ellie got dressed up and went for a little Easter-egg hunt around the house: toddle, toddle, toddle; set basket down; toddle, toddle, toddle; concentrate picking up poorly hidden egg; toddle, toddle, toddle; set egg gently in basket; pick basket up; toddle, toddle, toddle, while eggs fall out of too full basket... at least she's re-hiding some of the eggs for herself to find again later. ;)

After going to church in South Bend, IN, we headed over to the Studabaker Mansion for Easter brunch (with about 10,000 other folks). After lunch, while Ellie's running around from room to room in this gorgeous old mansion, who should stop by but a very large "hop, hop, hop!" Ellie was a little timid at first, but we me there next to here, she was totally comfortable taking candy from this very large stranger and blowing him kisses as he left.

Great Easter!
