This weekend we went to Chris's parents to visit and for his grandmother to meet Elena for the first time (and for Chris's 28th birthday on Sunday!) She spent lots of time outside touching Nana and Grandpa's plants. Four generations!
Susan and I took Elena outside to take some pictures in the grass. We took lots, but mostly she was interested in eating them.
Grandma made a card for Elena to write in for Chris's birthday/father's day. She brought the construction paper from Mississippi. She also made him a birthday cake using a box mix and frosting she brought with her. I thought that was pretty endearing-I guess they might not have had box mixes in Kentucky.
Again, this is how she likes to be as much as possible. This is Friday night with John, but on Sunday at church, this was her preferred method of sitting. She'd sit up, look at you, and throw herself back over and over. Until, of course, the preacher started and it was quiet. Then she decided to sing, so mama had to take her out.
She loves these shape sorting blocks. She doesn't really understand how to do it yet, but she does like to take off the lid and dump them out.
A very happy Leni.
In our Sunday best in the yard.
In Susan's dress, trying again with the flower pictures! Leni and the dress were big hits at church.
It was a good, laid-back weekend with lots of good visiting and lots of attention for Elena. She sure is a well-loved girl!
