Visit from Jamy

Share Button

We had a nice visit from Jamy last night.  Emily made delicious chicken parmigiana and chocolate delight for dessert.  Yummy!  We all had a good time watching American Idol auditions.

BTW, I just read today that cough syrup is a waste of money.  It doesn’t get you better any faster and apparently is no more effective than sugar water.  So, there is a money saving tip.

Have a good day…

Uncle Jamy enjoyed seeing Ella

He was pretty impressed with Ella

Dscn1831_1 Nothing else to say other than Ella is growing like a weed and changing so much week-by-week.  Her smile is the highlight of our day.  She is still really enjoying bath time and lights up when mommy whistles or daddy sings the "peanut butter sandwich" song.  We do spend a lot of time talking, singing, reading and playing.  Naptimes are getting shorter between feedings, meaning mommy is doing A LOT of entertaining (and Ella is doing a lot of learning).  Nights are still questionable as to how long Ella is going to sleep between feedings.  I’ve been told that 12 weeks will be a magical turning point and that "boot camp" will be over……then there’s still those people who ask "is she sleeping through the night yet???"  PLEASE!  On a side note- a big thanks to Uncle Andrew and Aunt Liz for the A&M binky!!!!   -Em

A future singer?

Bath Time!

Ella really enjoys her baths and we’ve found them to be a great way to get through fussy time in the evenings…..yes, granparents, she does cry sometimes!  She’s already smiled a few times at both mommy and daddy and loves for us to sing to her.  Bigger smiles and coos are just around the corner we think!!!

Happy New Year!

Ella spent her first day of the new year watching daddy paint shutters on the outside of the house and mommy tearing down Christmas decor and boxing it up.  Basically, ours was non-eventful, but we were glad to have the day to relax.  Joel took the week off between Christmas and New Years, which we enjoyed together at home….just the three of us!  This time last year, we didn’t think we’d be getting ready for a baby on the way, but the Lord has a way of surprising us and giving us just what we need in His time.  Now, I can’t imagine what we did without her!  This year, we look forward to first smiles, first words, first laugh, first steps.  What a precious gift we’ve been given!!!         -Em

We are blessed to have Ella

We just found out that Ella has grown 2.5 inches to 22 inches and has added 2.4 lbs to 9 lbs 8 ounces. Her head’s circumference was 14.75 inches. Translation: to this point much taller than average, a little heavier than average, and head smaller than average. Averages based a random sample of American girls.
