Video: Bread and Water

Ella doesn’t live by bread and water alone, but she sure enjoyed it tonight.

First Tooth

Share Button

Ella’s first tooth finally started to come through!  We heard it clinking on a glass when she was taking a sip out of mommy’s cup and after reaching in to feel her gums, the tooth was confirmed.  It’s on the bottom with a friend coming in right next to it.  She’s been fussy, but wouldn’t you be too?  We’ll be posting a toothy grin pic before long……..

Clicking the tongue

Share Button

Ella is learning how to click her tongue. This will come in handy when she visits a native African tribe in the future.

Sitting up (or very close)

Share Button

Ella is getting very close to sitting up on her own. Actually, she can do it in 30 second increments. I told Em that if we can keep her from crawling, we might have a pretty good deal here. She can entertain herself much more effectively sitting up.

First Vacation and First Food

Share Button

Dscn2227 This has been another month of firsts….first vacation to see Mimi and Poppa, first vegetables, first sippy cup and first Mother’s Day!  We had a great time visiting Midland and Ella did quite well in the car.  I’ve learned how to change a diaper while she’s strapped in the car seat and Ella has heard Joel and I sing round after round of "Old MacDonald."  Did you know that Old MacDonald had a hyena and an iguana on the farm?  We got creative……  Ella’s first veggie was sweet potatoes, which she inhaled.  Squash came next and she seemed to like that too.  Carrots, green beans and peas soon to follow.  She’s trying to grab cups out of our mouth, particularly water bottles, so we decided to get her a sippy cup.  She’s not quite figured it out yet, but she likes putting it up to her mouth and gnawing on the lid.  She does drink from the water bottle with daddy’s help….only to smile and give us a "Mmmmmmm" between sips.  Of course, she’s growing like a weed and way too fast, in my opinion.  We can’t believe she’s already 5 1/2 months.  Ella is close to sitting up on her own and is loving to roll from tummy to back.  Joel is doing GREAT with the rehabilitation of his knee.  He’s not had to go to physical therapy and the doctor said he’s made great strides in a short amount of time.  Nothing new with me…love being at home with Ella and having lunch with Joel every day that he comes home.  God is so good to us and we’re so thankful for His many blessings in our life!   –Em

God is good!

Thank you so much for your prayers and words of comfort!  God is so good and what a great reminder that He is in control of all things.  He promises us to never leave or forsake us and I know that His angels were surrounding us then and now.  I’m so grateful for the safety of our sweet Ella.  I was ready to fight to the death to save her should the situation have required it….praise God it didn’t.  Here are a few verses that have given me comfort these past few days:  “And we know that ALL THINGS work together for good to those who love God to those who are called according to His purpose.  For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor ANY OTHER CREATED THING, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  Romans 8:28,38-39  “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of sound mind.”  2 Timothy 1:7  “We also glory in trials, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.” Romans 5:3-4  “for you had compassion on me in my chains, and joyfully accepted the plundering of your goods, knowing that you have a better and an enduring possession for yourselves in heaven.”  Hebrews 10:34       Love you all, Em

We are thankful
