She keeps growing and growing and growing...

Well, we got Ella weighed and measured, and her guess was off by a couple of pounds. She weighs 15 lbs 5 oz and is 26 inches long. They didn't measure her head, but I'm sure its normal. This all keeps her in the 25th percentile. She's small but mighty, and we are so thankful that she is growing.

We also got the green light for sippy cups. So, today we tried it out. It went over like a lead balloon. Ella has only had milk, never juice or water, so not only was it something new to drink out of, but it was also a new beverage. She was thrown off by the whole experience. I'm sure it will get better in the next few weeks.

The sleeping thing is going wonderful! We're getting a solid 7-8 hour stretch each night! We are so thankful! I don't think someone can truely appreciate a full nights sleep until they have been deprived of one for 7 1/2 months!

Ella is now laying in her bed, staring at the music playing turtle (that thing never gets old). She is even "singing" along to the music.

Not only is Ella growing and developing, but so is her ole GiGi. I'm actually learning how to download pictures from the blog and send them to Walgreen for printing so I'll have some decent pictures to proudly show to the world.

By the way...for anyone who is interested...Ella is the clone of her mama at that age. Two very, very cute and sweet firls.

Rock on! I know momma and daddy are proud of their little girl's growth!

Lots of love,
