Then....and Now!


Ella watching the shark tank
Ella having lunch!
She loved this frog on the side of the tank,it was jumping for her.

Well today was a fun day! Dave had the day off work so we decided to go check out the Aquarium. Ella slept the whole way there until she heard all the people and noise. She loved it.....I don't think she blinked once the whole time. All the colors and movement around her! We saw the Otters, Beluga whale and her baby girl, Frogs, and lots of fish! I still can't get the "baby Beluga" song out of my head. Ella was a good little girl the whole time! I can't wait till she's a little bit older and start asking question after question.....I just hope I can answer all of them for her,because she's going to have a lot of them for me.

Well I took Ella this morning to the local pool.....and she loved it! I think she enjoyed watching all the kids run around more than the water. I was a little nervous taking her, with so much stuff and not being sure how things are set up for baby's. But it was great, the family rooms are there and change tables, it was easy! I plan on registering Ella for a class come Sept called "Bouncers". They should you how to put their heads under water and play. She'll be 5 months then.....After the pool, she officially found her thumb and sucked on it all the way home, and fell asleep the moment she was in the car. I think if that happens everytime....were going swimming everyday! hee....was a great morning! This is a picture of Ella after swimming, smiling away!Sorry about the side ways photo.

Talk to you soon,

Well the last weekend of weddings are officially over....We had two weddings in 2 weeks. And I had asked my in laws and my parents to babysit for the big days ,even before Ella was born. I had works for weeks trying to get Ella on the bottle so Dave and I could attend the weddings. The first wedding Laurie and John took Ella and to my amazment,the words they used was"she was PERFECT". I thought they were just saying that for us not to worry, but when we got home...it was true! What a good little girl and they had a fun day together.The second wedding was an all day thing. I was doing the brides hair do and we were both in the wedding party. I got my brave Mom to watch Ella, and they seemed to really have a great time. Nick,April and Abby came over and had dinner together for the evening.....went for walks too! I have told them over and over again, how much it means to us that they could help us with babysitting and letting us have days with no worry's. But I have to say it again....THANK YOU...from the bottom of our hearts. We don't now what we would do without you guys!

Here are some photo's of the busy weddings....now time to relax!

Lots of love......xo
