off-the-shoulder-excitementThis morning Elisa woke up sporting a new look: off-the-shoulder.  She had worked her arm out of the sleeve of the nightgown (a common occurrence!) and up our of the neck hole.  This is not entirely unexpected since she has worked since day one to get her arms loose from swaddling, but she seemed particularly excited by her new fashion.
