My New Toy

My parents gave Ella this Rainforest Jumperoo for an early Christmas present. She was bored with her other toys so I figured this would keep her entertained. It has so many little toys and gadgets for her to play with. I try to put her in it a couple times a day so she will get used to it. She is so funny how she inspected everything first. I had to put pillows under her feet because her little legs just aren't long enough. These are some pictures from the first time I put her in it.

Baby Will

Our good friends Eddie and Steph came by to visit today and brought their little boy Will to meet Ella. He was just so fascinated with her, and they just starred at each other for the longest time. The last time I saw Will he was Ella's age. He is now 8 months old and has changed so much. He is so darn cute and has the prettiest blue eyes that make you just melt. Ella pretty much slept the whole time they were here. We are so glad they came to visit and hope they come back soon.

Happy Birthday Cam!

My brother Cam will turn "THE BIG 18" tomorrow. So we packed up the family and headed to the Delta on Saturday to celebrate with some Alice Chow cake, ice-cream, and gifts. He loves Mexican food so Nick and I took him to Atzimbas for dinner. I still can't believe he is turning 18. I guess time flies when you're having fun.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAM!!! We love you!

Insanity Saver: The Ultimate Crib Sheet

This morning when I picked Ella up from her crib I noticed the dreaded poop blow-out. I quickly realized just how wonderful The Ultimate Crib Sheet is. So I unsnapped the sheet, threw it in the washing machine, and put the back-up sheet on. I couldn't even imagine this happening in the middle of the night and having to change the fitted sheet. This sheet only comes in white, which really isn't that big of a deal even if you are OCD like me about the whole nursery color-coordinating thing. It only shows the fitted sheet from the side, and not the top...which I have learned to accept. The only drawback is that the crib needs to have slats on all four sides, which is what we have. So thanks Noelle for introducing me to this fabulous invention.

Playing Catch-Up

These past couple of weeks have been busy, busy. I am finally posting pics of Ella's Baptism. Ella received the Sacrament of Baptism last Sunday at the St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Clarksdale. We were surrounded by our family and friends, and the ceremony went so smoothly. After the Baptism Maria Fyfe hosted a luncheon at her house. The food was great! Ella is so fortunate to have so many people that love her. I want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone that helped make her day so special. And especially thanks to Maria for feeding 30+ people.(I would have lost my mind)
