Ellison got this kitty for her birthday from our neighbors and she loves it!
She must have for sleeping all the time now.
The kitty's name is cobbler. We are trying to get her to say it bur right now all we get is kitty. :)

Sleeping babies are so precious.

Fun in the kitchen!

Ellison loves to play in Nana and Papa's kitchen and find new toys!

Just look what fun she had with a huge mixing bowl.

My new favorite!


If you have not heard about this yet you need to. A few of my friends started talking about it and I was unsure what it was well now I am on the band wagon!

It if a little hard to explain you just need to get in invite from someone who is on and then create an account and you are all set.

You create boards and then when you are in the Internet and find something you like (cloths,picture,recipe,idea anything you "PIN IT" and it goes on your board. You can make many categories such as, food ideas,cloths,cleaning tips etc. the possibilities are endless!

You can follow people and see what things your friends like and then you re "RE-PIN" there things to your boards.

Here is the link below to check it out. If you want an invite send me a message.

Where did they all go...?

The other day Josh and I were looking all over for Ellison's pacifiers, we could not find them anywhere. We knew we would give them to her for her naps but then they were gone.

So we moved her crib and this is what we found!

(don't mind my dusty baseboards)

8!!!!! Little pacifiers, such a silly girl :)

She is so cute!!!

Nana was watching Ellison the other day and when I came home Ellison had a new baby bonnet. She looks so cute with it on.

Last week Saturday we went to the farmers market with Ellison she loved it. We are so lucky to have a nice market so close to home.

The summer is coming to an end, we have had so much fun this summer going to the beach, friends pools, and just playing outside.

Is 11 months old to young too date...?

Ellison went on a date with Kasen again(with their Mom's too). It has been a long time since their last date.

We went to Panera for lunch and sat outside. They both had lunch in their matching strollers together.

Then we went for a long walk along the channel in Grand Haven. They were so cute trying to hold hands when they were side by side in their strollers.

After we tried to get a picture of them together. As you can see they were not very into looking at the camera at the same time.

Ellison said she is ready for another date with Kasen ;)

Ellison loves to eat!

We are just starting to try more new table foods. She wants to eat food on her own a lot. She always makes the chomp chomp mouth whenever she See's Josh or I eating.

Ellison likes to try and feed herself.

She sits on her high chair at home and when we go places she sits in her bebe pod seat, it works great for traveling!

Ellison wore her crown from March 16th, 2011- June 21st, 2011. When she got her helmet on they told us she could wear it any where from 2months-6 months. Her orth guy said, he was guessing she would wear it for 4 months. She wore it for 3 months and 5 days.

Everyone said she looked to cute with it on.

I had to make it fun by putting her bows on it. We got so many compliments from people saying it was such a good idea! I just figured I had to make it fun!

It never really was a big deal to Ellison she did not mind it. It was harder on Josh and I. I think it was hardest on Nana.

We are all very glad that we are done with it! We have it up in her closet so some day when looks at all the pictures of her with it on we can show it to her and she can see how much she has grown.

Now she is helmet free and just in time with all this hot weather!

There is a first for everything!

Josh and I had a first. We went away overnight and Ellison stayed home with Nana!
We went to Traverse City. It was beautiful and we had so much fun.

We went to six different winery's.
We love doing all the tasting and learning about the wine.

One of our favorite things in Traverses City is the beautiful scenery.

Some of the winery's have the most beautiful views.

We had a great time, but did miss Ellison a lot. We knew she was in the best hands with Nana.

We had a great time on our little Anniversary get away. We have been married for 4 years!!!

10 Months Old!!!

Ellison Grace you are 10 months Old!!!!(On June 13th 2011)

You are growing each and every day. We love to watch you learn how to do something new each day as well.

You are wearing size 9-12 months cloths, and you are finally in a size 3 diaper!

You have started to dance every time you hear music, it is so cute!

You say "Mama", "Dada","Papa", "Bababa" and "Up" we are trying to teach you Nana next!

You still have four 6 oz. bottles a day and are eating baby food 3 times a day. You are loving everything that we give you.

Next week we are going to start swimming lessons at the YMCA by our house, we are hoping that you like it. We think you will because you love your bath time and had a lot of fun in your pool at Nana and Papa's house.

You love to clap yours hands whenever we say "Yeah" or we clap. You watch our mouth when we say things and try to say it back.

You are trying to crawl and are getting stronger each day.

We are still going to O.T. once a week, and Miss E loves how well you are doing.

Since the weather has been nice we have been going for a lot of walks and you love it. Being outside is one of your favorite things!

We are excited for summer and to spend time with you.

We love you more than you will ever know!!!!

Ellison loves her bath time!

Every night that Daddy is home this is there special time to spend together. They splash, play and sing songs.

After tubby time Ellison loves to kick and kick on her changing tabel. She loves to be in her princess towel from her Auntie Barb and Uncle Dave!

9 Months old!!!!

Ellison Grace you are 9 months old (5-13-2011)! You are growing up so fast.

You have 4 teeth through two on the top and two on the bottom, and two more on the top that just popped through.

You are so proud of your self that you can sit all by your self now.

You have started to talk like a a big girl now. You will say the same thing over and over "bub bub bub"

You are having milk 4 times at day breakfast, lunch, dinner and before bed. You also eat baby food 3 times a day breakfast, lunch, dinner. You have started to eat gerber puffs and you love them. You try so hard to get them in your mouth, but they always get stuck in your cute little hands.

You are starting to try and crawl. You get on your tummy and try to army crawl.

You wanted nothing to do with sitting in the chair to have your pictures taken.

You had your first ear infection the other day. You were not happy and it was so hard for Mommy and Daddy to see you so unhappy.

We love you SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much!!!!!
