...will forever be known as...
(drum roll, please)
...the day Ella learned to tie her shoes!!
And what a proud girl she is!! She got a new pair of kickers that have thinner strings. It took her all of three minutes to figure it out once I showed her. She was so excited and even fussed at us when it was time for bed, "but I want to keep tying my shoes!" She grabbed them first thing the next morning, "I'm going to tie my shoes all day!" And she did! ha! Quite a big deal for this big girl!
