This cool little chick is adorable, no doubt, but would look a lot cuter right now if she were sleeping. I snapped the photo above while she was napping today. She's got this thing lately with falling asleep in the late afternoon/early evening and staying up really late. Now you're probably thinking "wake the child up when she falls asleep for her nap!" and it seems like the obvious solution. BUT but but... waking Ella up is like knowingly welcoming a natural disaster into your living room. Cranky isn't even the word for what she becomes (if you can even get her to wake up). It's an indescribable experience that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. Um... no thanks! The mental picture of that scenario vs. looking at the sweet angel above always prevents me from being able to wake her. So for now, I will listen to one of my favorite albums while she continues to play with Jeromy's keys and her Care Bear floaties.
