Please Settle This Marital Dispute

First, I am a button click away from ordering our photo Christmas cards. But there's a snag; Paul doesn't like one of the pictures I've chosen of Ellie! Please vote in comments for which picture you like better (or feel free to suggest another you've seen). Your input is greatly appreciated!
A) B)

Second, the expansion will open in a few short weeks, but in the meantime we still can't stay away from The Magic House!


Third, I'm in love:

I love them for just being them. I love that Ellie is using complete sentences now to tell me things, like which therapies she had in school that day and where Ada just bit her. I sometimes wonder if it's normal that my 1-year-old knows (many of) her letters, numbers, shapes, colors, and phonics . . . and says things like, "Ellie, lie down on your own pillow with me!" But then I decide to stop wondering and just enjoy, because I love all that, too.

i like the purple shirt picture the best. :)

I like B best too. But not by much, and if you were to do xmas photos in black and white, like on a home-printed letter with many photos, her arms and elbows might appear strange.

I like the purple shirt picture.

It's so cool that you have some place like the Magic House so close to you. We really are jealous.

B...Ellie's smile is brighter.

I like B.

Thank you for all this input . . . Paul is winning in a landslide!!!

(But check out that awesome jawline in option A.)

B. is my choice too! And is sounds like Ada is pretty advanced! She knows more than my 2 1/2 year old and he is right on track according to our "parents as teachers" facilitator. Pretty neat!

B for me as well, though she's cute as a button in both.

Sarahlynn said...

Argh! It's unanimous!

(And thank you for all the compliments on my adorable daughter.)

Jennifer, I think a lot of it has to do with having a big sister who's constantly being "worked with" to reinforce various lessons/skills in a fun and accessible way. But also, yeah, I think she's a little atypical, too. I won't be surprised to have two kids with IEPs someday.
