Ella and daddy ready to go trick or treating.
Just a quick note that Ella is really working on the da-da thing. She’s been making da-da sounds for months now, but I’m thinking she’s going to start associating that sound with me. Of course, she has probably known for months that I = da-da, but she’s waiting for a good time (right before Christmas) to lay that on me so that I’ll be even more likely to get her some cool toys…
On other fronts she has taken to pointing at things that she wants, and we think she’s working on popping out another tooth or two (evidenced by her playing with her jaw a bit and the big puddle of drool she woke up in after a nap a couple of days ago).
Ella (well actually mom and dad) survived her first sleep over. She went to stay with Grandma and Grandpa Frick while mom and dad went out to dinner and spent a night in Buffalo. Grandma and Grandpa said she did great. And Mom and Dad got to sleep in (till 8!) since there was no baby or dogs waking them up by 6 am.
I forgot to post, but last week Ella, mommy and daddy walked down to Wambachs to pick out some pumpkins. Here is a picture of Ella deciding which pumpkin to bring home.
Grandma Mindy got this picture when she was visiting this weekend.
Ella has done this a few times and did it again today. We were on our way back home to take a nap and she fell asleep in the car. So I take my drowsy baby upstairs to her crib where she promptly wakes up and decides 5 minutes is more than enough sleep. Which would be fine if she wasn’t so cranky!
Ella’s went to her first halloween party yesterday. Cousin Jack invited her to the PaeTec party. Ella had lots of fun collecting candy bars (too bad mom and dad will have to eat them for her) and visiting with Grandpa Frick and Uncle Jonathan.
Ella had her first taste of pasta tonight. She loved it!
Ella, Mommy and Daddy all survived Ella’s first plane trip. We went out to visit Grandma, Grandpa, and Uncle Jason. Ella was very good on the plane. A bit antsy but who doesn’t get antsy after sitting on a plane for a few hours. Here are some pictures from the trip. Ella stretching her legs in JFK – Ella and Dad looking at Zebras at the Denver zoo – Ella with Grandma and Grandpa.
Here is the promished picture of Ella needing to be rescued from her crib. One of her ‘discovering’ the dogs’ waterdish. And another of her at her first swimming class.
