Ella cut her first tooth!!!

This morning I had my visiting teacher Tay over. She was holding Ella when she says, 'Oh she's cut her first tooth!' It was so exciting because we didn't know! She's been drooling a long time and off and on cranky for a while now. I wish I could take a picture but you wouldn't be able to see it. She's almost 6 months now and we have her 6 month appointment coming up in a couple of weeks so it'll be nice to see how much she weighs and how she's developing!!!

Getting so big!!!

Getting ready for Ella's first spoon feeding!

Water, rice cereal and a little bit of pears all mixed together. She wasn't sure at first!!!

Great job sitting up!!!!

She loves leaning forward and if there's something in front of her she'll go for it. Just when you think she's going to fall forward she sits back up, toy and all in her hand!
Ella is now 5 and a half months and I can't believe how big she is getting! The things that she does just amazes me and brings a smile to my face whenever I see her. She is the sweetest and most precious thing to Tyler and I. Here is an update of Ella.
1. After just once of spoon feeding she got the hang of it and loves it! She even leans into it when the spoon is coming!
2. She is rolling over like crazy!
3. She can sit up by herself!
4. She reaches for everything and once she gets it, it goes directly into her mouth!
5. She is the biggest talker! I think she really thinks she is carrying on a conversation with you!
6. She is a mommy's girl. She may let you hold her but mommy has to be in her eye sight!
We are so blessed to have her and all of the joy she brings to our lives! We love you Ella Karen!!!

Our First Girls Trip!

So this last Thursday Ella and I drove up to Pinehurst and stayed until Monday! We had so much fun while we were up and it was fun hanging out with all of the family! We went to the Car d'Lane on Friday night and saw some awesome cars! Ella even took a nap in her stroller during part of the cruise! I don't know how she slept but its nice that she can sleep through so much noise! There was so much exhaust but that didn't annoy me as much as all the people smoking! It made me so mad when people would smoke right next to us when they could clearly see us holding Ella! Also we had a Scentsy party and it was a lot of fun too! We went to church on Sunday and it was cool because Tyler's dad was a speaker! Ella was also very popular and everyone loved her! (of course) :) Dad's birthday was on Saturday, the big 59!!!! I mean....39!?!?? So we celebrated with a bbq Sunday afternoon. Under the carport in my parents' back yard there was a birds nest with the cutest baby birds!!! We took some pictures but tried not to get too close. Val took some pictures of Ella and they turned out adorable if I do say so myself! For dad's gift we gave him the picture below of Mom, Ella and I. Val took some of the best pictures ever and I am so glad we have them! Monday we drove home. We were sad to leave the family but super excited to get back home to Tyler! We missed him so much!!!! Here's some pictures from the trip!
