What I've Been up to Lately

I push my walker all around, but I'm still too scared to venture out on my own.

I love to listen to music, and I have to push all these shiny buttons.

I have to lick EVERYTHING, just to make sure it is ok!

This is what I usually do while mommy makes dinner.

I try to hide from Mommy and Daddy when it's bedtime.

Here is a preview of my birthday skirt! Can't give away the whole outfit=)

Please Pray With Us

Please pray with us for this sweet baby girl!

Our dear friend Joel and Jess McClenahan's daughter Cora, who is 3 days older than Ella, was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma Cancer. She has undergone surgery to remove a mass, and will start Chemo on Monday. Our hearts are so heavy, and I simply cannot understand how the words baby and cancer can be in the same sentence! We have been on our knees in prayer, and are trying to get the word out to as many people as possible so that we can cover this whole situation in prayer! Joel and Jess are the most wonderful parents and friends, we love them and Cora so much! Please pray for rest for all of them, that the type of cancer she has would be easily treatable, and we will soon have sweet baby Cora's smiles back again!

Stolen Pictures

My sister in law Christy is an amazing photographer! We love having her around for MANY reasons, but one of them is that we get adorable pics of Ella all the time! She will be in Africa for the next 2 months!! Luckily she will be back in time for Ella's birthday, so cute pics will abound!

Christmas with Grandpa and Grandma Veer

The first three pics are from Christmas morning... we opened stockings and Ella opened one gift! I videotaped it all, and in the process forgot to get pics of her stocking! Oops!

Ella's new thing is to open her mouth as wide as she can quite often!

Ella kissing her baby doll! She got one from each set of grandparents this Christmas, and she loves them so much! She hugs and kisses them, and points out their eyes, nose and mouth!

Ella's other favorite toy... opening and closing a cardboard box!

An Ella sized rocking chair from Grandpa and Grandma Veer.
