Let the teething begin.....

Today was absolutely exhausting. To my knowledge there still aren't any teeth in Ella's little mouth, but she screamed ALL day long and the only thing that made her happy was sucking on my fingers surrounded by a cold wash cloth. Hopefully she will sleep through the night without any trouble. I put her down about two hours ago and she has only mumbled a few we'll see.

On a happier note, Ashley came to visit this weekend and brought me some of the pictures her and my mom took at Ella's birth. I know these are old news now, but it was kind of neat to look back and remember all of the feelings from those first few minutes of her life. Just thought you'd like to see them too.

Me and Ashley just hanging out in the birthing room before things got crazy! Obviously my contractions weren't too bad at this point since I was smiling :)

David making fun of the "laboring" position....

....but once 3am came around, it wasn't quite as funny!

Me right after Ella was born....drugs are my friend!!! :)

Holding Ella for the first time.

First family picture.

My labor and delivery nurse was awesome! I could not have done it without her support.

Ella's hands and feet.

David showing Ella to Grandma Hall.

Grandma Ketchersid has a red nose.....wonder why?? :) How sweet is it that Ella is holding her finger?? Love that!!


  1. Awww, I've never seen that one of Ella and your mom! How sweet is that?! One for the scrapbook for sure;)

  2. Since David likes the birthing position I think he should have the next child. That way he can wear the little gown with no butt cover. =) love toni & beth

  3. Awwe, she's teething! Aubrey got her first tooth at 4 1/2 months and then not even a week later the 2nd one popped up! So now she has two. Also, her first tooth played peekaboo with her gums for about a week so that part is the worst!

    I love all of the birth pictures! I cannot believe how fabulous you look after just having a baby!
