On January 1 we took a vacation to Georgia. It was a great visit because we were able to get to spend time with both of my brothers' families. We don't get to see them very often so it was great to have a few days together to catch up.

But one of the best things about vacation is getting to have Daddy with us all day every day - for 10 days straight! I think we all get a little spoiled. We came back from GA and Brian was home with us for a couple of days before he had to head back to work. I went in to Ellerie's room to wake her up on that first Monday morning when he went back to work.

She sat up and was pointing in the hallway talking very quietly. Sometimes she talks so quietly so I couldn't understand what she was saying. I thought maybe she was scared of the big humidifier we had put out in the hallway but I soon figured out that wasn't it. Then I finally realized what she was saying. She was asking for "Da-Eee".

I told her that he wasn't home this morning because he had gone to work. She said, 'No he not at work, he's at da house - he's seepin.' I told her that he wasn't home but that he would come see her after work. She looked at me so pitifully - her big eyes filled with tears - and her little lips started to quiver - and she said again 'no -he not at work...'

Love that baby girl!

She is so sweet, I could almost hear that soft little whisper of a voice.
