Here are some snipits from early February. The image quality seems a little less than satisfactory...the pics were emailed from my phone so I think some of the quality was lost.
I'll have to be better about toting the camera around more.
Thomas got Ellie her first swim suit for Valentines Day. He took Ellie & I to Blowing Rock/Boone for the weekend and we had a great time! It was way too cold outside to enjoy the suit, but we had to have her try it on and do a photoshoot. We've been going to the Harris Y right near our house and using their indoor pool. I've got pictures of that adventure somewhere!?! I'll post...
But Ellie loves the water and does a great job floating!
Mmm! Sweet potatoes! Ellie is still enjoying solids and getting used to the idea. So far, she's had banana's (her fave), sweet potatoes, peas, and apple (I blended one up into sauce form). Sometimes I mix rice cereal or oatmeal cereal into the food, but it makes it so much more bland. I think avocado is next on our list!
Sitting pretty with her bow from Aunt Emily and her sweater from Cousin Hannah.
Or maybe Cousin Wes picked it out?!
Look at those chubby feet! Love them.
Puppies getting a little rowdy with the food. The light gray one on the right is the one Emily is going to have. She hasn't decided on a name but they have already bonded!
The group. They love their box!
So chilly! Ellie is sporting her super-cool tights, with her super-cool hat, and her gorgeous dress (from Grammy!). She loves sitting like a big girl in the stroller (and not in her car seat attached to the stroller any more). What she does not love is the cold wind! When it gets blustery and really chilly, she will suck in air and kind of catch her breath when it hits her face and if it keeps up for a few seconds, she will force me to pick her up....
She looks so cold down there all by herself!
She is not a fan of the cold weather. But we go out anyway! :)
