Ellie Week: little kind heart.
yesterday the girls were eating breakfast together and Alice spilled some Cheerios and milk on herself. Alice really hates it when she spills things, especially on herself, and so she started crying and was super upset. immediately, i heard Ellie run around the table to Alice's rescue and say, "are you ok sweetheart? don't be sad, Alice. it's ok to spill. it was just a ask-a-dent." and then she got a napkin and helped wipe her up. before i knew it, Alice's tears were gone and they were back to their Cheerios, talking about Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and how Ellie isn't afraid of Cap'n Hook anymore because he's just pretend (even though she leaves the room any time Cap'n Hook comes on the screen).
i love it little moments like these where i can see that golden, kind little heart of Ellie's shining through. she's a little nurturer by nature- and that's one of my very favorite things about her.
