Ella has started saying "Ella do dat" - translation: "Ella do that". Just yesterday, she used it to tell me that she wanted to sweep the leaves in the backyard. Our outdoor broom is probably at least two times as tall as she is, but she wanted to try. In reality, she just ended up pulling it around the yard and then later bringing it inside the house when I wasn't looking. With each passing day, she just tries to do more and more things on her own. Our little baby is growing up!
