Ella's 1st Road-Trip!!

This sweet girl just returned from a vacation to Idaho, where we spent lots of time with our family & Auntie A & her family. What a wonderful trip we had!! Ella did SO well on the road trip to Idaho & then on the way home yesterday!! There are so many stories I'd like to share from our adventures, but I'm very tired - so I hope for now, these pictures will be enough. I have lots & lots of photos to share, so consider this the introduction & photo sharing take 1. :)

I'll be back later with stories from our trip & of course more pictures!!

Ella's first trip to the Carousel (with Ethan & Auntie A) before we left for ID:
And one more pic of the sunglasses, because I think they are just too cute!! :)

So Pretty...

My baby girl in her first 'sink' bath.

After the monumental bathing, she found herself for the first time in the mirror.

And today, she found her thumb - several times - & sucked away...oh my goodness, the melting of my heart continues.

On another note, thank you to those of you who commented on the last post for the contest. Are you ready for the answer? The answer is - Jessie. Yep, that's right, the circle/line 'letter' in the middle of the page is the 'J', followed with backward s's that look like z's. :) Thanks Mia for writing my name for me - I adore it! And thank you to all who played along. Unfortunately since no one got the correct answer, all of you who did play along owe me a Starbucks. That's right - Starbucks $$ is tight these days, so I will take Starbucks anyway I can get it - so you owe me. I'll be waiting by my mailbox for the gift cards to show up if anyone needs me...

PS Thank you SO much to My Andrea for making my blog header adorable & summer ready! I l.o.v.e. it! Thank you AA!!

Things That Make You Go Hmmmm???

Last week my youngest adorable niece wrote this & gave it to me. Do you know what it says? Leave your guess in a comment - there could be a prize in it for you...

And just because I can't help myself, here's a pic of Ella from this week asleep in her new favorite napping place, the swing. :)
