Ellie really is just a delighted, happy baby. She is always smiling and playing and cuddling and just being sweet. She especially loves to cuddle while we’re making dinner. Sweet, yet not always convenient. It really is hard to slice and dice while holding a 20 pound baby. Most nights either Zak or I will cook and the other will cuddle with Ellie. But occasionally it’s nice to have two sets of hands helping with meal preparation. A tough situation with Ellie.
Then one evening I was slicing bread for dinner and cut off a big chunk to keep Ellie entertained. And, by golly, it worked! She sucked and chewed that hunk of bread for a good 15 minutes, plenty of time to finish dinner.
And now we always have bread on hand to entertain our cuddle bug!
