This pretty girl officially has two bottom teeth! Mamaw was the first to discover a few days after her 7 month birthday. Daddy noticed the second one last night. Let the teething commence.

Firsts: Rolled Over July 17

Ella Jo is 15 weeks old today (3.5 months) and rolled over! I love milestones but this is definetly going to complicate things. Now we are worried if she will roll at night to her tummy and end up in her spit up. Never ending worry! She rolls from back to front.

10 weeks

Ella Jo,
It is 5:53am and I'm holding you in my arms and thinking about how lucky we are to have you in our lives. You already bring so much joy to each one of us. Your smile and grin lights up the room literally. Bright eyed and bushy tailed really does describe you. You are already so big and long not a newborn anymore. 
At 10 weeks old you:

  • Have found your hands and across the room you can hear you sucking on them.
  • Can see further distances and recognize voices.
  • Have started drooling like crazy.
  • Have found your tongue.
  • Have slept until 5:30 this entire week and snacked for about 6-8 minutes and then gone back to sleep. Your mommy is not swaddling your arms during this sleep time.
  • Visited the zoo for the first time.
  • Can hold that little head up pretty well.
  • Laugh and coo and kick your feet when you are happy.
We love you sister!
I just want to eat her up! Look at her little tongue!

Little Sister
When I say your big brother Will wants to be right on top of you - I mean that literally! He loves you so much and his love language is touch for sure.

Today Ella Jo has had an off day. I think her tummy has really been hurting and of course we have been on the road to swim lessons and a friends house. We are finally home and she has eaten and fallen asleep. I very rarely just sit and hold this little girl unless she is nursing but today I thought she needed it. I love every moment with my little girl and am so thankful to be home and able to enjoy this time with her. I think we are both in our happy place!
Treasuring these sweet moments.

Singing Cowboys & Firefighters

The boys as much as the fight non-stop, they do play so well together. This week we have singing cowboys and firefighters. Gaines has turned his room into a fire station. I just shut their doors because they have pulled out so much "necessary" stuff for their adventures.
Tough firefighters

Look out fires...

Our next door neighbor, Mr. Barry, plays his guitar on his back patio every evening so the boys insisted on playing their guitars outside to watch the "beautiful sunset" as Gaines says. These two are a mess!
Pickin' and a grinnin'
