Ella really likes it when we brush her teeth - thank goodness. I use a little finger brush and baby toothpaste and she loves it. Our new apartment has an extra long counter and the other day she was sitting up there next to me while I was brushing my own teeth. She didn't take her eyes off my mouth, her stare was beyond intense. I decided to hand her Daddy's toothbrush (sorry Honey) and see what she would do. She was very good - put it right in her mouth, mimicking my moves. Her brain soaks everything up like a sponge. She is so smart. We think she is ADVANCED!

1. a box of cake mix
2. two eggs
3. 1/3 cup of oil
Bake at 350 for 12-15 min.
SUPER SIMPLE & SUPER SWEET!!
A friend of mine posted this recipe to her blog and a challenge to see how many different versions could be created. I made a batch for little Ella's 1st birthday party using funfetti cake mix and strawberry icing. (YUM YUM) So here is my latest version that was inspired by my AMAZING husband and his love for Reese's peanut butter cups. I used a chocolate fudge cake mix and Reese's peanut butter chips. They were very good! Love this idea, it is so easy and you really can get soooo creative and come up with lots of different versions. I think my next attempt may include a Spice flavored cake mix?!?!? The options are endless!!!

Ella is growing so fast. She is becoming very independant, wants to do everything herself. She does not use a bottle and I kinda miss that cuddley bonding time. Clothes and shoes that fit her yesterday do not fit her today. She looks more and more like a "little girl" everyday. Her "baby" face is going away. It makes me sad. I want to freeze time and keep her my little baby who needs her mommy forever!

Ella is 1 year old!!! Time has flown by, I cannot believe she is already 1. We had a family party over at Grammie and Grampa's house. Auntie TaTa (Tatia) flew down for the party. Auntie Tia (Petrea) and Auntie JoJo (Kelly Jo) were there too. The whole house was filled with pink streamers and pink balloons. She was spoiled by everyone with wonderful gifts - and of course we stripped her down and let her demolish her very own cake. Lots of FUN had by all!
