15 Month Old Stats

As if this will come as a surprise to anyone, Ella is off the charts in the height category! Her doctor said that she is doing great and that we are doing a great job as parents. Duh!!! :)

Weight: 23 lbs and 7 oz (50-75%)
Height: 33 inches (100%)
Head: 18 (25-50%)

Her head circumference did not change so David jokingly asked her doctor if we should be concerned about having a tall child with a small head. She said not to worry about it. :)

We're getting closer to keeping all of her hair in a ponytail. I can't wait!!

I'll leave you with this adorable smile.

Baby #2 Update - My next appointment is Thursday and we'll get to see her one more time on film before meeting her in person!!! 6 weeks and counting!!!!!!!

Well, after a year and a half, I finally updated the look of our site. I really should have given up on this hours ago and gone to bed, but you know how it is once you start something and can't stop until you figure it out. The graphics are a combination of a few things I found on the web...and the layout was what I have been tweaking the past (I refuse to say how many) hours.

I love it though. I'm happy.

Yay for pretty colors and fun layouts!

We're getting closer.....THANK GOODNESS!!!

We're coming up on week 33 and I couldn't be happier. I never wanted to be seen as the "cranky/complaining pregnant woman," but I am SO over being pregnant.

I am ready to meet her, hold her, kiss her and NAME HER!!! :)

Thought I would throw in a picture of Ella tormenting Toby earlier tonight. Poor dog.

Swimming with the Cousins

We went to a cousin's swim date a few weeks ago (yes, I've been bad about blogging lately so these pics are a few weeks old) and Ella wasn't quite as excited about the pool as Ava and the rest of the kiddos were. David got in with her, but she had more fun running around the pool and eating! That's my girl! :)

Quick Baby #2 Update: I praise God every single day that she is healthy and growing on track, but if the next two months don't pass quickly, I might die!!!! :) I am ready to be done. VERY READY. It's 106 degrees outside and I am cranky. My next appointment is this coming Thursday so I'll let you know if there is anything exciting to share.

Not sure what Ella is thinking about Ava in this picture..but she was determined NOT to smile.

This was their first time to try arm floaties....clearly Ella wasn't a fan. Ava on the other hand LOVES the water!!!
