Happy Birthday to Ellie!

Wow.  Can you believe it?  Little E is the big ONE!

She was so little when she was born!  (The size of Brian’s hand!)

But now she’s a bustling one year old!

She is so sweet.  She loves baby dolls and cuddly toys.  She will not hold her bottle voluntarily, but prefers to keep her arms completely outstretched while drinking.  She does not like the texture of table food, but loves baby food.

We had her birthday party on Sunday.  Most all of her family came despite the horrific weather last week.  My brother still doesn’t have power!  He and his family (and week old ducklings) spent the weekend with us doing laundry, charging electronics, and drinking coffee.  But, we all had great weather after the storms, so it was a perfect weekend to have a party!

Hm – I’m not so sure about this.

Ouch!  She didn’t actually touch the candle, but obviously, she came very close!

Stand Off.

Dig in!


Thanks for taking pictures, A&L!

She had her check up today, and all is well.  She is about the 90th percentile for height, but only about the 10th for weight.  Also, the pediatrician told me that they recommend following the new AAP guidelines for car seats.  Ugh!  Another year of rear-facing!
