Elise likes to hear us say "Bless You"

After she sneezes or hears someone else sneeze she will do a cute fake sneeze and if we say bless you, she will continue to do it so as to hear more bless you I can only assume. Check out the video below for an example. Also she knows her head and her tummy now. I had to make one edit to the video so forgive the weird cut in there.

Days 330, 331, and 332

Elise made a trip to the emergency room on the night of February 2nd. She has an umbilical hernia (which is pretty common in babies) and her hernia was becoming discolored. We had an ultrasound and x-rays done, and it turns out that she had some baby fat squished through the hole of her hernia. The fat was losing its blood supply and starting to die. As bad as that sounds, the doctor said that she would be just fine. It looked sort of like a bruise. Within a few days, it was all better.

Here is a picture of Elise waiting to see the doctor:

You all know the Snoot Face. It is usually accompanied by a snort. Well this is perhaps the perfect example of such a face.

Elise admiring her friend's piggie, January 25th:

If only the setting behind her were a beautiful beach scene! January 26th:

This is Elise's "snoot face." She makes it when she's happy, and while she makes it she often snorts through her nose. It's very silly. She gets super happy when she has a chance to sit on her foster brother's musical toy and push the buttons with her butt. January 27th:
