Since Alexa has been born, it's like Ellie has grown up overnight! In the past week, Ellie has been doing all kinds of new things. As I have said before, she is just smitten with her sister. Every morning, "baby Yeta" is the first person she asks for! I love that she either calls her "yeta" or "exa"! So cute!
Well, this morning when Ellie woke up, we had just given Alexa a bath. As Joel's Mom and I were getting ready to dress her, Ellie noticed Alexa's little umbilical stub that hasn't fallen off yet... (though it's getting VERY close). Ellie was concerned and said "uh-oh...bleedin' - to which we quickly responded "No, Alexa's not bleeding..." before we could finish explaining what that little thing on Alexa's belly button was, Ellie then responded "poop?" We burst out laughing! It does kind of look that way! Ha!
Another very sweet thing that Ellie has been doing since Alexa was born was learn how to pray! Right when we sit down at the table, Ellie always quickly says "pray?" So we all join hands and pray. But this week we've been giving her the chance to pray. Her sweet prayer is "thank you Jesus...Amen!" YES... THANK YOU JESUS, AMEN!
