Mimi has been with us the past few days and Ella has worn some new outfits! We’ve been shopping and even to the mall for Ella’s first professional photos….as a mother, I almost felt guilty for leaving the store without buying every one of my baby girl’s sweet pictures. I guess that’s how they get a lot of people, but I was strong and didn’t go overboard. Joel and I participated in our church’s “Parent Commitment” service, in which we were reminded that we need to daily seek God’s wisdom and help as parents. Ella has finally rolled over! She’s also now reaching out and swatting at toys that we dangle in front of her. I even get a few hearty laughs out of her when I strip her down right before bath time (still a favorite). I LOVE THIS JOB!!!
