You Don't See That Every Day

Ella Grace adores Evan. She wants to be close to him at all times (remember the broken leg incident). She wants to play with whatever he is playing with. She wants to eat whatever he is eating. She gets so excited and giggles with delight when she gets close enough to even touch his back. She loves for us to carry her around, chasing Evan, pretending to "get him." Evan, on the other hand, tolerates this affection but is not usually returning it. He likes Ella, but he doesn't crave the togetherness she does. Well, last night we saw something very unusual. Evan letting Ella play with him and give him a kiss. I think Derek said it best, "You don't see that every day!" Derek actually caught the chain of events with the camera. Great job, Dad!

Playing together!

Contemplating her move.

Making her move. Evan looks like, "Oh no, here she comes."

"I might as well give in."

Awww. Isn't it sweet?!
