so exciting! except i missed it...

so we were hanging out at kayci and jessie's house last night - halfway watching the bor-ing cowboys game.

ellie was rolling all over the place, scooting around, babbling like a sweet pea while we were chatting. i always set her up, and then she takes off like she's gonna crawl, but she can't yet. she gets on all fours and rocks. she stays up for longer and longer each time.

anyway.. she's rolling around on the floor behind me, and all of a sudden i look at landon, and he has his mouth open. he's looking at ellie. i look at her.

she's sitting up!

she got from laying down to sitting up all by herself!

and i missed it...

I think I've missed a lot of firsts too. Sometimes people didn't have the heart to tell me until after I had witnessed the big milestone firsthand. John David took his first steps in the church nursery with Michelle....

That is so exciting! Just wait till she starts crawling - the world changes in an instant. I can't believe she is even old enough to be doing these things. Crazy how fast it goes!
