Bob and Patty (Kim’s parents) are here for a week to marvel at how much Ellie has changed since they last saw her in September. The first day was fun, as Ellie impressed them by walking everywhere, feeding herself, and used her growing vocabulary.
Unfortunately, Ellie, Kim, and I all picked up a virus last weekend at a birthday party that has wiped us out—which has made a grandparent visit all the more wonderful for us. Ellie is doing better than Kim and I (although she’s getting over having what we at first thought was pinkeye, but instead is just a minor eye infection—I should point out that Ellie has been great about letting us put the prescription gel on her eyes three times a day), so we’ve been able to recuperate while the grandparents entertain the girl.
Now that we’re on the mend, I’m sure there will be more outdoor excursions (the weather here is particularly nice right now) such as going to the zoo, the Arboretum, and other locations.
