Big News!! Ella slept from 8:30PM until 7:15AM!! This is a huge record for Ella! She has slept through the night, oh maybe 5 times, but I am counting 4:45AM as sleeping through the night! I'm being generous! As most of you know I am not a morning person and I totally need my sleep. Most of the nights when she would "sleep through the night" Kyler would wake up. We just couldn't catch a break! Last night was the first night that Kyler and Ella have both slept through the night! I am feeling nice and refreshed! Thank you Ella and Kyler for letting mommy have a good nights sleep. Now if we could just keep this going all would be good in the world!

My Pretty Girl

Every day Ella seems to be changing before my eyes. I swear she gets prettier and prettier every day. I do have to admit, she is definitely a "high maintenance" baby! But, as Cody says, she has a "high maintenance" mama so why should we be surprised that she is a high maintenance little lady!

Thursday Thirteen #3

For this weeks Thursday Thirteen I thought I would use this topic:

13 Reasons Why I Love To Blog

10. I get to show family and friends how wonderful my babies are!
11. I can document, without actually writing.
12. It's easy-I can blog while I am nursing!

Let's see what else I can tell you guys about myself.....
1. This summer I am in two weddings. I am the Matron of Honor in my best friend, Adriane's wedding and I am a bridesmaid in my brother's wedding. I am very excited and honored to be a part of both of these weddings.

2. I hate to empty the dishwasher. I would rather wash the dishes then empty the dishwasher!

3. I love to plan things. I had a blast planning my own wedding and have enjoyed planning Kyler's birthday parties and I am sure I will enjoy planning Ella's.

4. I LOVE breastfeeding! I know it sounds crazy, but I actually enjoy it. Ella loves it too. I keep saying I may just nurse her until she goes to Kindergarten! Ok, I promise not to do that, but I do enjoy this bonding time with Miss Ella.

5. I am terrified of taking baths. I avoid baths at all costs. Don't worry-I take showers!

6. I know I said on my Thursday Thirteen that I am very close to my mom, but I am also very close to my mother in law. I talk to her almost once a day also. No wonder I don't get anything done! I'm always on the phone with my mom and MIL!

I am tagging Lyn-z, Jeri, Jennifer, and Jenny. Good luck Ladies. I can't wait to read your blogs:)

More March For Babies Pics

Olivia's uncle, Joel, took these pictures at the March for Babies walk this weekend. Thank you Joel for the wonderful pictures and thank you Jodi for emailing them to me.

This is how we kept Kyler occupied! We gave him food!

Kyler checking out the crowd.

I honestly have no idea what Kyler is doing here! If you look closely you can see the button with Olivia's picture on it.
