Ellie loves sitting in chairs her size. So I went out hunting for one that wasn't too tall that I would have to worry about her falling out of, so this is what we found:
She gets so excited when she sits in it, it is absolutely adorable!
We also decided to buy her a little pool her size for the backyard. We have a neighborhood pool (which she likes more since there are other people she can play with and observe), but this makes it easier on me so I don't have to always get in if she wants to get wet. Here is a picture of her eating the squishy wet ball:
Here is one of Ellie playing with her bucket:
Ellie still doesn't like to explore things very much, she LOVES watching people and interacting with them. Sometimes she can be shy, but most likely she hardly seems to know a stranger. No matter where we are, Lowes, the mall, a restaurant, if a stranger even smiles at her she is willing to go straight into their arms. We aren't sure how we feel about this, but it has made life a little easier since she loves almost everybody. She's definitely a little social butterfly :)
