A Fist Full!

Ella and I wake up pretty early to get our morning walk in. She loves it once she gets in the stroller and we get going. Actually getting out the door and around to the parking lot is another story. Ella has started this new thing where right when I open the door for us to head out, she runs to her room to grab something to bring. Sometimes she goes back 3 or 4 times before we can even get out the door. She grabs things, fists full of things, that are completely unnecessary for the trip. She grabs toys, shoes, purses, extra clothing, hats, anything she can find. Our trip from the door to the car consists of her dropping something every 3 or 4 steps. It takes us a good 10 minutes just to get to the car. It is a bit annoying, but I laugh at it and have found myself taking a quick picture of it everyday. Needless to say- all of these toys end up in the back seat of my car until the end of the week when I bring them all in.

Water Baby

This summer we have had the opportunity to take Ella swimming a few times.
The first time she was a little reluctant, had to be held, and did NOT even want to get her hair wet.
Now she is jumping in from the side, splashing around, kicking her feet, and putting her face in.
She has turned in to quite the little " Water Baby".

Thanks to all our pool owning friends who let us swim this summer!

I cannot believe Ella is already 18 months old!
Time is going by so fast and I don't want to forget anything about each precious moment.

Ella is...
happy - pretty much all the time
busy - very busy, always doing something
helpful - when Daddy is mopping or Mommy is folding laundry
kind - wants to give kisses to everyone, even strangers
smart - learning new things daily

Ella loves...
singing - espically at church
babies - every time she sees a baby she is excited
outdoors - cries when having to come indoors
football - cheers and cheers at the t.v.
popcorn - otherwise known as "pop pop"
