There is no mistaking who she belongs to! New haircut! Look mom no hands!! Ella is really trying to sit up...this was about 2 seconds before she fell forward and hit her head. We will only play this game on the carpet from now on.
We couldn't wait to meet our new niece but as soon as I took this first picture, the battery died in my camera. Emma is asleep in the lower right corner. If you'd like to see more adorable pics of our beautiful niece, you'll have to go to the Cooper Slye blog.
We were really excited to finally finish the backyard!! Its been 2 years and it was long overdue. We brought in a ton of dirt, built a retaining wall, sodded, planted shrubs and flowers, made a play area for Ella, and built a garden so that I can make organic baby food. We also added a fence and a sprinkler system, we couldn't even begin to water everything now that we had a front and back yard!! We love everything!!
Our smart, sweet, compassionate and funny "big girl".
