Growing up Ella

Hey everyone. I just wanted to post some more updates of our blossoming little girl. She amazes me every day. At her 6 mo. appointment Ella weighed 15 lbs. 5 oz and was in the 25-50% for her weight and height. She is so petite. But as most of you know she has been crawling since she was 5 1/2 months. Now she likes to walk along the furniture and pull her self up on anything she can get her hands on. I am most certain that it won't be too long before she starts walking. Ahh!! That's a little scary.

But she has been nothing but a joy. We had a little hiccup in her sleeping routine when our air conditioner went out and then it didn't help that we traveled across the country for the next two weeks after that. Now that we are home and getting settled back into our routine, she is starting to sleep better at night. THANK YOU!!! If any of you know me at all, you know I don't do too well with lack of sleep. So now we have a happy baby and a happy mommy. Can't get much better than that. Aaron is always a happy daddy because 1. he doesn't require as much sleep as I do, and 2. I usually get up with Ella anyway. (Although, in his defense, he does offer to do the night sift quite often)

This is Ella's new trick. Pulling her self up on everything


Ella is trying to get buff like Daddy.

I love these pictures. Thank you for posting :) It's amazing she's walking along furniture. She's super baby. I wish I were there to play with her. Keep the pictures coming!

These are great. I love the one of her trying to lift the weights. Aaron will be so embarassed when she can press 200 pounds and he can't!
