One of the more nerve-wracking (and sweet; let’s not forget sweet) things that Margaret does these days is play with Ellie.
It’s very nice, and Ellie likes it, and there is snuggling and laughing and general cuteness. Oh, so heartwarming.
And strange. Because Margaret has been playing with Ellie recently by means of piling things up on her.
Or Lego cars.
Or rings. The rings are a favorite.
And Ellie gets into it, of course, since if something comes in range of her hands these days she tries to stick them in her mouth.
Or on her mouth, as the case may be.
And then, as is only to be expected, Margaret decided that by putting the ring on her face, Ellie was trying to play peek-a-boo with Margaret. So she helped her do it again, and decided that she needed them on her wrists and ankles. You can see one going on over the left foot.
But Ellie seems to like it, so who am I to argue?
