While Thomas and I were busy with wedding festivities (Sarah's college friend Laura got married!), Ellie hung out with Grammy and Grandpa all weekend! Here is one of the best from the weekend. I'll upload more soon! :)

Ellie's Baptism was a fun-filled weekend and Grandpa, Grammy, Great Grandpa and Great Uncle Greg came up from FL for it. Here are some of Larry/Dad/Grandpa's pics:
(This was back in June 2010)
After this photo shoot he took of her on the front porch, you can see why I think that G-pa doesn't really like Ellie that much....I mean he seems totally disinterested. :)

Ellie took her first steps at Grammy & Grandpa's house (L & K Bretz in FL) on Labor Day weekend. Great-Grandpa and G. Aunt Dawn and G. Uncle Greg were there, too, to witness this fun event. She took maybe 3 or 4 steps and then rested for a while. Then a day or two later, she'd practice a few more. She was very proficient at walking with assistance (a hand, a table, Buzz Lightyear) but not totally on her own.
This video was taken two weeks later on Sunday Sept, 19. She was practicing her couple of steps (showing off for her boyfriend Finn) when something clicked and she just got it: "Oh! This is how you walk! Of course." And she was off! Hasn't stopped walking since. Take a look at her first 5 minutes of real walking....
