This has nothing to do with Eleanor, but

So this has nothing to do with our Eleanor (sorry), but my brother sent me this link and I thought it was hilarious. Please view.

Contrary to what this looks like, my daughter really does like me.

Is it weird or somehow wrong that I laugh so hard when Eleanor cries like this? I just think it's hilarious. This is her pouty, "I'm sick of you people bothering me" cry, and she loves to bring it out when she's tired of us kissing her. Which sort of happens a lot. The kissing. And I guess the crying too. She better get used to it, cause it ain't stopping. It ain't even slowing down. At all.

Here's a few more pictures we've taken.

She has started to smile a lot, but it's been hard to get a good picture of a smile. As soon as she sees the camera, she just sort of stares at it, kind of emotionless.

Elle is always a hppy girl right before bath time. She can be crying her head off, and the second we walk into that bathroom, she's content. She and Nikki pose in front of the mirror.

This is another example of how her cries crack me up. I put her in this whatever-you-call-this-weird-thing and she's clearly not ready for it. I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but her legs are dangling, and you can see her right hand sticking out the leg opening. Not an orthodox sitting position, but hilarious nonetheless.
