Our 1st 2 Weeks with Ella

Ella is now 2 weeks old...we can't believe she's been with us for 2 weeks already. Sometimes it feels like she's been here for much longer :) We've been waiting so long to meet her that it's sometimes unbelievable that she is really here with us now. We are so in LOVE with her as is Avery and enjoying each day as she continues to grow.

Some of the things that have been going on for the past 2 weeks:

Mommy is finally driving again...woo-hoo!! We are no longer housebound and so we are not going stir crazy anymore :)

Ella's umbilical cord fell off in only 13 days! This is so exciting for us because Avery's took almost 6 weeks.

She is a great eater and is really packing on the rolls!!

We've been spending a lot of time with our family and friends. And, have been having yummy meals delivered to us so we don't have to cook right now. Thank you all so much!

We took our 1st sponge bath after we got home - pics to follow shortly. Now, we can give her a real bath and we hope she will like it!

The Penrod's came over for some football watching on Saturday when we got home. Nana getting her baby fill!

Okay, these are our kids, but this is what the pic could look like sooner than later for Mollye and Brian. Don't they look like naturals!

Avery and Ella spending time together. Avery likes to show and shake Ella's baby toys for her. Sooner than later she'll start responding to them.

Check out my baby...

Avery picked out these outfits for Ella and her. They were given as gifts to us from our dear friends the Cason's. The girls look adorable in them. Thanks so much!!

Nap time with Daddy. Avery's been wanting Ella to wear this onesie but it's too big. Soon!

On our way to Avery's school. Avery loves holding Ella's hand while we are riding in the car. She is so sweet with her.

Avery decided to put all the burp cloths "she calls them blankets" on Ella. She's a little toasty!
