Random Pics from the Past Few Weeks

I had Tim take this pic of me and Ella so I have some of us together since I'm normally the one behind the camera. She's out and ready to go to bed...Mommy too!

Papa and the Girls

Ella and I chatting it up - lift that head baby

It's cold, but that's okay because I'm cute

Sweet girls
Avery's favorite toy - my Ipod. Is it too early to get her one of her own?

She's teaching Ella how to work it too!

Sitting big in her Bumbo chair

I bought these headbands for Avery and of course she wanted to wear them all at the same time. Stylin'

Wow, more of me and Ella. Maybe there are more of us than I thought!

That flash is bright!

My Mom's friends got this adorable chair for the girls. Avery is loving it and she wanted Ella to try it out too!

Both of them in it...Ella looks so tiny and Avery looks so giant:)

Check out Ella just chillin' in the background

Sleeping so soundly in her swaddle. Whoever invented the Miracle Blanket is a Genius!! So much better than the regular swaddles. I will be sad to see it go once she outgrows it. It's amazing how she can be so fussy and then I put her in this with a pacifier and you can see the instant relief and calmness overtake her face.

This shirt says it all folks!

11 Weeks Old

11 Weeks...what?? How can this be?? My baby keeps growing so fast before my eyes - slow down sweet Ella!

Such a happy baby...loves giving out those smiles to anyone who is looking and talking to her. And, she has started to "talk" back to us. I don't know what she is saying, but we seem to have full conversations together. I think she will be a talker like her sister!!

She is sitting great now in her Bumbo and we has such great head control. We don't ever have to hold it anymore.

Sleep soundly sweet angel

Avery asked that I take pics of her and Ella this morning...my pleasure ;)

My cutie-pitutie

Had to close with this one. I was putting Ella down for a nap around dinnertime and I came back downstairs and this is how I found Avery. Earlier she was sitting in the chairs Darmi and Poppy brought over for the kids for Thanksgiving and singing all her songs she likes on our ipod. It was so fun to hear her - maybe she's the next big superstar :)

Good Morning

This is how my morning looked...a nice glimpse into what will be soon enough :)

While I was making Avery's breakfast I put Ella in her bumbo chair and Avery asked me to bring a stool over for her so she could sit with Ella while she ate. She talked to her the whole time and Ella just sat and smiled and cooed at her. It was so sweet and something I look forward to them doing more as Ella gets bigger:

Then, we had about 10 minutes before we had to leave for school and Avery asked that I bring Ella over while she played. Another session of talking, smiling and cooing :)

My Big Girl ready for her Thanksgiving Feast at school. You are such a sweetheart!

Halloween Night...Trick or Treat!!

Halloween night we went over to the Jurney's to trick-or-treat with the cousins and enjoy some family time together. Here are all the rascals dressed up in their costumes. What were the odds of us getting a pic of them all looking at the camera smiling?? None, but that's the best way!!!

Doesn't Riley's knife look so real?? I love how in all the shots, each kid is doing something different and crazy. Like the girls in the background here


Be careful Tim, I don't think that is covered on our life insurance policy!!

Another set of group shot attempts. These kids are hilarious!

Ella joining the pic for her 1st Halloween

And, their off!

Going out for some candy...

Hanging out...next year she can have some candy too!

Sorting out their stashes...whatever you do, DO NOT touch!

Nana made a ghost cake whose eyes light up. So cute!
