New Places to Play

Ella loves standing up to play now. It is really fun to watch, but I have to be on my toes for when she crashes... I'm trying to avoid too many bruises on her head for family pics this Friday!

This is the look I get from Ella when I tell her "no"

So Many New Things....

Ella is doing so many new things all at once it seems! She can move clear across a room without crawling. She sits up by herself, which in turn leads to her pulling herself up on everything. This morning she was standing in her crib calling for her mama! Cute you might think, not as cute @
4:00 in the morning! Yesterday she folded her hands to pray all by herself when I said it was time to pray before her lunch! (I almost cried). She raises her arms above her head when you say "so big" and then she claps for herself! She also claps along to any music she hears. She added some words to her vocabulary this week also, and called all of her grandparents by name to their face, they were thrilled! Papa and Nana is what she uses so far. Her favorite thing to do is jump! We got her a Jenny Jump Up, but she likes to jump everywhere but in it, so hopefully she will learn to love it. I wish my baby wasn't growing up so fast!

Future Piano Player

I think we have a future piano player on our hands! Ella loves to play the piano, and listen to others play. Don't try and make her play your way though, she wants to do it herself! I've caught her looking at the music a few times too, she will be better than her momma in no time!


Ella is starting to like her baths more and more!

Crazy Kansas Fall Weather

A couple of weeks ago it was freezing!! Today, Ella and I enjoyed a walk outside, and I wore shorts and a t-shirt! Crazy, but we are loving this warm weather and playing in the leaves!

First Halloween

Ella was a sweet cuddly pink bear this Halloween! She didn't mind her costume @ all, and I even heard her growl a little bit=) Mommy & Daddy were @ Judgement House working this year, so Grandpa and Grandma Veer took her around their neighborhood to show her off!

Inside her costume she was a giraffe!!
