August Recap

As usual another month is "flying" by! We seem to be always on the go, but we have had lots of fun times!

In the beginning of August, Ella took her first airplane ride to see Grandpa & Grandma Saluter in Baltimore. I didn't know how she would react but she did amazing. Considering this is the same child that we couldn't take in public for the first 6 months I think she has made huge strides. She watched Dora & Deigo on her new DVD player & munched on some goldfish and was happy as a clam! Grandpa playing with Ella.

Uncle Glen & Aunt Arlene making Ella giggle.

Ella hamming it up for some cake!

Here are some recent cute photos....
Ella loves bathtime and her 500 bath toys!

Ella in her bath robe running around her room before bed. Hmm doesn't look like that bedtime lavender bathwash worked, she still looks pretty wired to me.
Future Verizon Wireless customer, she loves her cell phones!

For Ella's first birthday we got her tickets to go see Dora Live at the Fox Theatre. I didn't know who was more excited, Mommy or Ella ;-) I really think Ella loved it because her eyes would not leave the stage and when Dora or Boots went off stage she waved bye bye to them. Plus it was fun to do something different and watch her reaction to all the new things.
It ended up that the Sat 11a show was quite popular since we saw Katelyn, Katie, Jeff, Erin & Wes. So much fun to run into friends!

Some more random August photos.
When she puts her sunglasses on we call her Hollywood!

Can we say Daddy's clone? Not only does she look just like Skip but she tips her sunnies down just like Daddy when he is mowing the yard. Too cute!

Hollywood getting ready to greet Daddy in the front yard. (Also notice the nice stream of drool, we can thank 2 teeth cutting through for that one;-)

Ella so excited & waving like a crazy person as soon as she sees Daddy's truck driving down the street.

Fun in the sun

Since Daddy has been really busy at work we planned to have a family fun day and I think from her smiles it was a huge success!
Fun in the Sun!
Close up of Ella's face as Daddy throws her high up in the air! She loves it, however mommy was cringing as I took the photos!
Higher, Daddy!
Then we had some fun at home!

How can you resist my cute little face!
