I love watcing Ella Grace play on her mat. It's so much fun to watch her little brain working as she learns : ) She will usually play on her mat 2-3 times a day for about 15-20 minutes each time, but sometimes up to an hour! Not only will she kick around on the mat, smile, laugh and "talk" to the toys on it, but she is now starting to bat her hands at the toys. It is too cute! Sometimes she will get a good grasp on one of them and will NOT let it go! She just keeps pulling at it and swinging it. i LOVE this girl TOO much!!! She's growing up WAY. TOO. FAST.
