Apparently, the highlight of the day was Ella rolling from her belly to her back! That is a first and an exciting step of progress. She can’t roll from her back to her belly quite yet, but it is exciting that she did a version of rolling over. When she did it, Kelly clapped and made a big fuss which made her laugh.

Yes, on the way home from work I tried to get some Christmas shopping done. I am guilty of not having any gifts ready….except for my Dad’s puppy! Speaking of the puppy, my Dad decided to name her Maggie.

Maggie and Manny will be coming over for Christmas which should be fun. I’m still holding out hope that Manny will not take too much longer to snap back into his old-self. He is lethargic and anti-social. Right now, he’s not to into the puppy either; he snarls at her when she comes close and wants to play. I know this is a normal response when a puppy is introduced, but I think he is also still trying to figure out what happened to Joslin. I really think he misses her.

I can’t believe that Christmas is just a few days away. Grandma West is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, but we will see if the weather cooperates. Hopefully, she will not have any major issues. We’re excited to see her and spend the holiday together.
