Valentine's Day & Family Festivities

It was a year ago on Valentine's Day that we found out we were having a little girl! Needless to say she looks a little different from the ultrasound but we could tell even then that she was a cutie!

Then to celebrate Papa's birthday we had the whole gang over for a celebration lunch. We all borrowed Ella's bibs since we had ribs and licked our plates clean! Here's the Brown Family.

Ella walking around the backyard.

Ella getting a little taste of Papa's Birthday Cake icing, yumm!

Also I always hear, what color eyes does she have? Blue like Daddy or brown like Mommy and really they seem to change a little bit each day but here's what they look like now.Peek-a-Boo I see you!!!

Here are some more photos of Ella at bathtime, always a favorite!!

See mom still no teeth.

Splish Splash I love the water!!!

Goth Baby or Chocolate Syrup?

You tell me....Goth Baby or Chocolate Syrup?

Ok actually it's neither but who knew prunes could make such funny photos...and yes for those of you thinking "that's what it looks like going in...think of it coming out!" You are right she had 2 explosive diapers following that fun feeding. And go figure, she loved prunes but I think the lesson is a little goes a long way!

Here are some more pictures....Ella meeting Auntie M's new little furry one, Merlin.
All bundled up for a cold day!
This is how the playdate started with Ella (6.5 mnths), Hannah (5 mnths), Caroline (3.5 mnths) & Blake (2 mnths)...

And this is how it ended...Needless to say Ella & Caroline were ready to go!
Oops this is what happens when you sneeze while eating carrots!

6 Month Check-Up

Today we went to the Dr. for Ella's 6 month check-up and everything looked good! She is 17.3 lbs (75%) & 26" tall (50-75%). She was all smiles until the shots but really who likes shots anyways! ;-) Here are some recent pics.

"Wait Mommy here I come!" Ella loves standing & dancing around, but she still needs someone helping her keep her balance!

"Cheese or should I say Applesauce!" No surprise here, Ella loves to eat!!!

"Who needs re-runs of Seinfeld when you have my Daddy's show every night!" Daddy playing fun games with Ella.

We thought this photo was funny since it looks like she is holding the camera & taking a picture of herself. ;-)

"Look into my eyes and count to 10 then you shall be under my baby control!" Ella uses her big beautiful eyes to melt Mommy & Daddy's heart!
