Sleeping In Her Crib

Well we finally got around to putting Ellie in her crib to sleep at night. It seemed we kept postponing it. Not sure if it was because I wouldn't be able to reach over and check on her really easily or if I just didn't want her to grow up. I blame it because we kept going out of town or she would have a stuffy nose, or a sick tummy. Anyway she has done 4 nights and is doing okay. I would love to say she is perfect, but some nights I get up with her more than I want to. I really need to let her start crying it out before running in.

3 Months

Okay so I am a little late on posting this. Ellie is now 3 1/2 months but when I took a last minute trip up to Utah to visit family one last time before I went to work I had my sister in law take some pictures of Ellie. I have to say they turned out ADORABLE.

I know, lots to look at. These are only my Favorites. She is just a cutie!

Ellie weighed 13 lbs 4 oz on her 3 month appointment (she was not supposed to have one but we had to take her in for a pretty nasty goopie eye)

She decided she likes to suck on both her hands at the same time.

She has started turning her head from side to side

And now Roy's back hurts...

So yesterday I got this wild hair up my butt that I wanted to paint Ellie's crib white to match her changing table. Roy was going to go along with it and even help. He told me to go to the store and get all the supplies so when he got home from work he could get started on it. We decided to wait until today since Roy didn't have to work. Roy got up early and went golfing and I got up early too so I could work out, get my other craft projects done before we started another one and clean up the kitchen before he got back. He walked in the door and said "so yeah, we are not painting that crib. My mom said she would give us $50 dollars to go towards a new one since the old one was a drop down anyway." I of course was not going to complain about that. Now I didn't have to sand down the old one and try and make a paint job look good. So long story short we went and found this cute white crib at Burlington. Roy took the other one apart right away and got started putting this one together. He has been having back problems on and off all week and all the crawling around in such a small space, this one together was the cherry on top. BUT I love the crib soooooo much and am very happy with the purchase. Oh and also I can reach Ellie to put her in and out of the crib. Since the other one was a drop down (but you're not supposed to use those anymore) we had the drop side against the wall. So the sides were so tall and with me being so short it was kind of awkward to get her to go to sleep in it. The Old Crib

Oh and I just had to post this picture of Ellie ready to go for a walk to the mail box. We can't go for long walks because for some reason it is too hot. Oh well. Hopefully in the Fall/Winter we will enjoy some nice family walks with Roy and the dogs.

Favorite Thing

Ellie's Favorite thing is to have her diper changed. She could be screaming and then everytime she ends up on her changing table these are the faces I get!!
