A complete 180 in 2 seconds.
Strangers at Target and the supermarket, park, etc look at Ellie's beautiful smiling face and say "they are always happy aren't they?" These people with innocent intentions phrase it as a question yet when I say "nope, same feelings and emotions as everyone else." I get the strangest response "but they are always happy." Um, okay so much for enlightening others.
Come over to my house between 2pm-5pm and witness Ellie staring as Miss Cranky Pants in the daily production of "The Witching Hours at the Theurer's". Come and enjoy Ellie's perfect imitation of Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin. I am relative positive that just 20 minutes in my household during the aforementioned time will cure anyone of the belief that "they are always happy".
Ellie is a child just like any other 46 chromosome child. She knows fear, separation anxiety, love, humor, pain, and most of all anger and frustration. My Aunt Peggy had profound depression when her mother/my grandmother went to Heaven. So, no, our blessed population of the extra special 47 chromosomes are not "always" happy. However, I would like to think that Ellie's jovial nature come from Andrew and from the fact that she knows she is loved.
Let's end on a happy, exciting note since the previous pictures make my mommy heart cry.
Apparently I need to keep the bathroom door shut as toilet paper does not make a very fashionable boa. Nor is it fun to clean up.
I see you Amelie and Sophie. Must be Ellie's accomplices.
My dog just cracks me up.
