Bath time fun

I don't have any pictures to show you tonight, but I had to write about our bath time tonight. Ellie has found out that it is really fun to kick her feet in the water. Now, for those of you that have seen her on the floor kicking... yes it is just like that, except in the water. So you can just imagine what it was like. Water was flying everywhere!! I mean everywhere! My whole arm and sleeve was soaked, and most of the front of my shirt! I had to use the shower curtain to protect me from getting just completely soaked!! Just when I thought that she was about done, she discovered that she could do the same thing with her hands. Apparently this was much more fun, because she screamed as I tried to lay her back. I thought to myself, "When she splashes herself in the face, she will quit." No... I was wrong. That was just funny to her. She would laugh and do it even more. Maybe next time Josh is home we can snap a few pictures. I wish someone would help me figure out how to get my videos on here, then I could show you alot more (hint,hint)

A night with Uncle Cody

Last night Ellison got to spend some time with her Uncle Cody. She had so much fun! She laughed and played all night long. She even started to make a funny face. She use to make that face when she was mad because she couldn't get something. Since we laughed at her, she does it all the time now for attention. Here are a few pictures from the night:

I know. Itsn't it funny?

My Big Girl!

Well for a week now, Ellie has been sick with sinuses and a head cold. She is so young that they really couldn't gove her anything. We finally got them to give us some Nasohist dm which I like because it puts her to sleep! We'll see how well it works tomorrow. You can tell in some of the pictures how bad her eyes look.

Anyways, I wanted to show you some pictures that I took of her tonight. She is starting to sit up on her own. It usually doesn't last very long because she trys to look around, or grab a toy and she looses her balance. I also caught a picture of her holding her bottle. (I think the highchair was helping a little.)

Ellie and Carter

"Cousin" Carter invited us to go swimming in his new in ground pool! It was so big it scared me! I didn't like the cool water. I much prefer my warm bath water!! After we got out we played around with each other and mom had to capture some pictures (as usual).

Carter: "What's so funny?"

Ellie: "I was laughing at your mom being silly!!"

Carter: "Why did you have to talk bout my mom!?!"

First Trip

Ellie went on her first trip this weekend. We went with Grandby, Papa, Greg's Family, and Inez to the Amish country and to Daivd Crockett State Park. To all of our surprise, she did amazing!! Didn't really cry at all! I think we will be able to take more trips now! I'm so excited!

Ellie playing like a big girl

La La La...

What? I'm just playing.
I love my daddy!!

Ellie's first highchair

Well, thanks to Grandby and Papa, Ellie has finally got a highchair. So far she really likes it! She sat in it tonight and ate all her rice cereal. She even sat in it about 30 mins while I fixed and ate supper! It was so funny, I got a video of her just playing and talking to herself! I think I'M going to like this!! I love this chair!

Fourth of July (done early)

This year was Ellison first year for the big Shubert fourth of July cookout. She had a cute little outfit that Grandby bought her, but unfortunately it was too hot and it had to come off. I think that she enjoyed herself. She did get a little fussy towards to end of the night, but I think she wasn't use to all the people. Next year should be so much more fun!!

Ellison Grace is 5 months (almost)

Well, Ellison will turn 5 months old on Friday the 4th of July! WOW! I know... time flies! I know I don't have enough pictures of her on here (saying that sarcastically) so here are a few more. Hope you enjoy! Oh yeah, she is finally rolling over both ways now. She doesn't like laying on her stomach sometimes and will quickly roll over before you know it.

I think she likes her rice cereal!

She licks her spoons instead of letting me put it in her mouth.

She almost always sits like this. She looks like an old man.

This face was too funny not to share.

Do you think she loves her daddy or what?
