Sunday in the Square

Walking to Sassy

It is impossible to get a pic of the three of us

looking and smiling these days

Mom and Ella

We went this morning and met Susan aka Sassy at the Spot of Tea downtown. We had a nice breakfast and then walked across the street to Cathedral Square. It was a beautiful morning and couldn't resist. Ella loves being outdoors and is so fascinated by everything! Here are a few pictures from our morning.

Bike Riding

I really don't like this helmet
Hurry up mom and dad! Let's go!

I am cute in my helmet.

This is going to be fun!

We decided that Ella was ready for her first bike ride....on the back of Daddy's bike that is! She wasn't a fan of the helmet at first but once we got going she was A-OK!

Where has Summer gone?

See all my curls?

Getting so tall!

This summer has gone by way too fast! The last day of school I remember thinking how this was going to be the best summer ever and how I would have so much time with Ella....well I was wrong...it has FLOWN by! However it has been a great summer for many reasons:

1. I am not a gigantic pregnant woman that is so swollen I look like I am about to bust.
2. Cameron is home for good and we are getting to be a family that is together day in and day out.
3. Ella Craker is full of life and makes us smile every minute of the day.
4. Uncle James is almost home now...for good we hope!

We have been so busy this summer between trips to Aliceville and trips to the beach. Ella isn't quite walking yet but I have a feeling it won't be long. She is starting to say more and more and surprises us daily. It is amazing how smart babies are. A few nights ago I made a pizza for Cam and I to eat and Ella got a hot dog and carrots. Well.....Ella didn't like this one bit! She kept reaching for my pizza and I gave in and cut her a bite and blew it before I gave it to her because it was so hot! Well, ECC decided it would be a good idea to blow each piece I put on her tray. She is still doing it when she eats. Ella Craker is a funny kid...she keeps us in tears from laughing. She also had her 2nd eye surgery a few weeks ago. Dr. Terry put a tube through her tearducts and it runs into her nose. It will stay in until September 14 and then he will take it out. This should correct all her tearduct problems. I haven't had my "good" camera because Best Buy had it and was fixing it. Ella and I are taking our first ride on a plane next week. I am a little nervous because Daddy won't be with us. We are going to North Carolina to see Uncle James come home from Afghanistan. We couldn't be more excited.

4th of July

jumping to Jeje

We had a great Fourth of July! We went over to Don and Debbie's and went swimming and played. We would have loved to stay for the fireworks but we didn't want a meltdown to ruin everyone's fun. We came home and she was out for the night. Jeje came down and spent the weekend too! Ella and Jeje stayed at home on Sunday so we could go tubing with some friends. We had a great time but Jeje was a bit tired when we got home Sunday night! We couldn't help to think about Uncle James on the 4th. We miss him so much and are counting the days until he gets home! He isn't going to believe how much Ella has grown and how much she has changed. We are so proud of him and can't wait to see him! Ella and I are going to go up to NC when he gets home to welcome him!

Daddy's Birthday

Out to eat!
What do you mean it's not for me?

Not wanting to help

Ella helping

Fun at the Pool

Playing in the fountains

Conner and Ella

Going down the slide...Ella loved it
and mom was so worried Ella was
about to go under...but she didn't!
It was so much fun!

We took a little trip the kiddie pool in Bay Minette last week! Ella had a great time as you can see! She is such a water baby!
