Dog Appreciation Day

Look at what I can do! No- not opening the door, I can braid her little hair! Ok, so I know this isn't as exciting to most of you as it is to me. But a few moms can appreciate how fun a new hairstyle is
on your little girl.
Sadly, she left them in for all of 17 seconds, but hey, at least I got the picture. This is actually over a month ago as you can see from the summer-wear.The property just behind ours houses a family that have a few dogs. They are wonderful dog owners- in that I never hear them. I suppose there is more to being a good dog owner, for all I know they have had their voice boxes removed or something equally horrifying. But as long as barking doesn't keep me up at night, and a fence keeps your dogs from "going" on my lawn- then you are awesome dog owners.
Eleanor gets excited if we are outside and she hears the dogs. I used to lift her up to look over, but that's only fun for about 10 seconds. After that my arms start quivering and I resolve to work out. Since that isn't a good idea, we found her a little step stool to peep though a knot hole.
She looks like the world's cutest pervert.
She stood there for ages on the day I took these shots. She kept saying "Hi doggy!" each time one would run past. If they got too close she would giggle and squeal.

Here is a little video of her watching the dogs. I love how she knocks on the fence, like they might open a door for her or something. And then how she waves goodbye through the tiny hole. And how she grabs her pants when I say "panting". Sorry, but she's just so cute!

And here is Eleanor's new favorite video that doesn't star Elmo. She will watch this on repeat about 80 times in a row. It's great for when I am making dinner. Sit her down and press replay every 4 minutes. It's a fun video and a great song. We love OkGo.

P.S. My blog cuts off 1/4 of the screen. Click on the Title at the top of the "screen" to see it there in full, it's much better that way.
