To celebrate some falling snow and Ellie's poop this morning, we dressed her up in her winter duds and went for a walk.

She didn't know that the snow was any different than other days outside but it was good for us to get out and get some air.

We have spoken to the Short Gut folks at Chilren's and have added new foods to her buffet as well. We gave her a piece of apple in the mesh teether thingie and learned that tart Gala apples aren't such a good idea but sweet delicious apples are just right for babies:

We have also given her some Cheerios that work for motor skills as much as food. Gus loves to clean up the mess at her feet but we think that a few may have gone down the hatch. It is all trial and error here and we know that a round of constipation and/or an ostomy explosion is bound to happen, but for now it is good to be moving the train along.

I can't begin to tell you how your giggling daughter brightens my day. Thanks, Ellie! (and to her wonderful parents, for posting cute pictures, and, you know, for having her and all). Ellie, you're so cute. Hooray to chowin' down!
