Ellie came to visit me at work the other day, and when I had to go back to my desk to get on a conference call, she joined me and enjoyed listening in on the phone. Continue reading “Busy on sales calls”
Despite Ellie having a cold and feeling crumby, she mustered up the strength to check out the new Trader Joe’s in St Pete. They were handing out stickers, which Ellie made good use of after seeing Daddy stick one on his forehead. Continue reading “Trader Joe’s tomfoolery”
Lately, we’ve been taking advantage of the lovely Florida winter weather by going to the park regularly, which Ellie really enjoys. In this video you can see her marching towards the park before noticing and calling out the swings, which is her favourite thing to play on.

Yesterday, we took advantage of the beautiful weather and went to a new park in St Pete – Crisp Park. Ellie had a lot of fun playing on the slides once she got the hang of it, and it was made all the better by the static electricity that built up on the slide, causing her to have a ‘fro every time she went down.

On Christmas Eve, Mama had made plans long in advance to visit Raystede Animal Sanctuary, in Ringmer, near Lewes.
We were pleasantly surprised by how nice it was there, and we’d highly recommend visiting there and seeing all the animals in such a lovely environment. Continue reading “Visiting Raystede Animal Sanctuary”

On Friday, Marti was nice enough to come and meet me for lunch, after which, we came back up to my office to let Ellie say hi to everyone, and to explore. She loved looking into everything, even our industry magazines! Continue reading “Visiting me at work [VIDEO]”
This morning, Ellie and I took Oma to the airport and while we were there, we went up to the roof to see some planes taking off, and then rode the monorail for a few trips. Ellie got to sit up front and she looks like she’s driving in this picture.
It’s no secret: Marti and I despise the beach, but since we had an engagement there this evening (a friend’s wedding), we figured we’d make the most of it and get Ellie’s feet wet.
Today, we went to visit an old friend of Martina’s, and we decided to meet at a restaurant for lunch. It was the first time we’d ever taken Ellie to a restaurant, but we felt ok about it, since she’s easier to predict now, and we were outside where she wouldn’t be able to scream the restaurant down if she so chose. She was a champ, and even munched down half a banana while we were there.
