While in VA I found a super fun library that was having a free music time for kids. I took Ella and she loved it!!! I think we have a future musician on our hands.

growing, growing....

Ella got her well check-up at the Doctor's office this week. She did so well. I was so proud of her for being so well behaved. She did not even cry when she got her flu shot. :)

Here are her stats:
height 3'1"
weight 31 lbs
She is in the 18th percentile for her height. (shorty)
She is in the 33rd percentile for her weight. (just right)
She is growing and growing!!!

Ella's "Big House"

While in Philadelphia for the half marathon, we stayed at the Crowne Plaza hotel. Ella called it her "big house". She loved the fluffy white bedding and the eye mask and ear plugs that were provided for more comfortable sleeping.

She has asked me at least 12 times today when can she go back to her "big house".

Future make-up artist...

You know something is wrong when your 3 year old gets very quiet all of a sudden...

I found Ella on my bathroom counter putting on my make-up.

I think she did a pretty good job, don't you??? Future Lancome make up artist, just like Mommy.

So well taken care of...

My family takes such good care of me.
Last night they sat at the doctors office with me while the Doctor took tons of time examining my foot going over options and scenarios of how to help me. I t was a long appointment ending in a yucky steroid shot that they held my hand for.

This morning my sweet 3 year old played "doctor" and let me rest most of the day with ice on my foot. she brought me her 2 favorite dolls which were both given to her by my Mommy so it was nice of her to let me snuggle them. She also brought me a "coo rag", a wet rag to make me feel better.

I am so LOVED!!!!!

A VERY happy meal...

Sometimes a little girl needs to stop eating her Mom's luna bars and mango and enjoy a Happy Meal!!!!

I am paranoid, so this does not happen very often. Thank Goodness she HATED the cheeseburger so I don't think she will ask for one ever again.

choo choo train park...

Ella LOVES the Lititz Springs Park. She calls it the "choo choo train park". :) There are ducks everywhere, swings, slides, and of course a train. We spent two glorious hours there today and enjoyed every minute of it!!!
