A new video of Ellie

 Here's a video that Laura took of Ellie last night.  Miriam is playing around on the piano in the background.  The video would have been longer, but the camera card was full from all the other videos they've taken recently.  Enjoy!

Ellie's first word is...

Of course she says Mama and Dada (not sure if she knows that Dada is Daddy, but she says it), but her first  official word is kind of unexpected. Rachel taught it to her, since she likes them so much, but it is unexpected that she is actually saying 'rat'. She calls the gerbils 'rat', since that's how Rachel taught it to her, since that's much easier to say, and Ellie just loves the gerbils, except when they crawl over her bare skin or tickle her face with their whiskers. But all in all, it's pretty funny.

The Budding Photographer

We have a new photographer in our house- Miri. As I was doing the last post, I saw over 50 pictures of Ellie that have no purpose and look a lot alike. And then I saw some that were upside down! So here are a few pictures Miri took in the last couple days.

I wonder how Miri got the picture upside down. I guess the camera was upside down!

Aren't they cute??


An Easter with Ellie

Hmm... How odd. All the pictures of Easter are of Ellie! I have a feeling that those are the ones you really want to see though, so here are a few.

Isn't she so cute? Hope you enjoyed these photos!

A couple pictures

Jeffrey tried to stay awake...didn't work.

A woman on a mission...Ellie isn't crawling yet, just doing the up in the crawl position, flop forward, repeat...but it won't be long.

For mom--her beautiful dogwood tree is blooming while she's in Europe. So I took a couple of pictures so she could enjoy it from a distance. I don't feel too sorry for her. :)

Ellie's latest accomplishments

My life is about to get a lot busier. Ellie has figured out how to roll from back to front, and back, and back, and wiggle around so that she isn't right where I left her if I give her a few minutes. Soon, I won't be able to leave her alone on a blanket with a few toys, which is something I do when I want to do things like get dinner ready, shower, etc. :) She is growing...she was 14 lbs 15 oz at the doctor's this morning and she had an oral vaccine and a shot and gave only a tiny cry after it. Yes, she is awesome! (I remember Becca at 6 months just watching as they gave her her shots...not crying either...but all the other kids have cried every time and I don't blame them a bit!) Maybe it helped that her binky was still in her mouth (because it had helped her get the oral vaccine down). The doctor said she was the first baby that had been happy to see him today (though it was only 9:30) and she is generally a happy baby, except when she wakes up in the middle of the night. Here's a couple of pictures, which is what I know you really want, so enough to you all!

Another cute picture and I'm sorry I don't know how to rotate it within blogger, so...a brief head tilt is in order.

Oh, she got her first baby cereal tonight. Not her first food because she's gotten tastes off of our plates, but the first time she got more than just a taste.

More snow info...

Quickly, before I go out again, I just wanted to add that the snow is 7 1/2 inches now. I took pictures this morning, and I will post them later.
