Previous pictures of Ella
This week Ella has been playing hide-and-seek behind the curtains, cooking syllabub with Mummy, eating lollipops, and enjoying the sunshine in the garden. For the past few weeks one of her favourite words has been "really", which is used to correct foolish people who get things wrong (usually Daddy):
"Have you got a dinosaur?"
Ella: "It's really a diplodocus."
"Are you drinking your juice?"
Ella: "It's really lemonade."
"What lovely pyjamas!"
Ella: "It's really a night gown."
And so on. On Saturday we went punting in Cambridge, thus completing the trilogy of places in England where you can go punting (that we know of). And on Sunday Ella held up her crab, which was tangled in a piece of string, and announced: "There's a problem with this crab".
