Wow! I have been super bad at keeping up on my blog! I thought i had to get one more March post in! I can't believe it's almost April! I can't wait for warmer weather, and especially for summer!!! Here's some pics from the last couple of weeks:
One more from Ella's bday, this is before her party

She's been eating lots of new food lately. This one is pineapple:

Our cousin Ben got married last weekend, but I have no pics of the happy couple because this is what Ella was doing all during the ceremony:

The reception was more fun for her! Playing with balloons:

And Uncle Mike's mustache was a big hit!

Hi Mom! Just hangin out with Papa

Ella has been sick with a cold for the past 2 weeks, she was so tired this day, she fell asleep sitting up in her crib! Poor baby!

Ella brings so much joy to our lives!! She is such a sweet, smart little girl. She learns a new word everyday, and we love to hear her sweet little voice talking! She gives the best kisses! She is walking all over the place, and will soon be running around. We feel so blessed to be her parents, and thank God for giving her to us! We want to raise her to love Him with all her heart!

Last year I shared a birthday with this precious girl! More than anything, I wish we were sharing it again! My heart, thoughts and prayers are with Joel, Jess, my dear friend Anne, and Cora's grandparents, and all of her amazing family today as they honor her life and share sweet memories!


Here's a little recap of Ella's past couple of weeks in pics!

We went to the park with Grandma Tilson.

She climed all the way up the stairs by herself!
