We have been keeping busy of course! On Friday we had a busy and fun filled day :) Ellison had a chance to spend some time with her Aunt Sarah and with Sarah's boyfriend, Danny! While they took Ellison to play, Connor and I had our 16 week check up for Baby Ball. The appointment was short and sweet. We didn't have an ultrasound but we did hear the heartbeat...which is sweet music to our ears :) It was the first time we got to hear it. Absolutely amazing! The heartrate was right at 150 which favors the baby being another girl based on what my doctor says. However we are still open for either boy or girl (I really don't have any gut feelings). While we were at the doctor this is what Ellison was doing...

Checking out the binoculars
Playing in the sprinkler
Having so much fun with friends!
Loving the start of summer!
I am sorry but how cute are those butt cheeks?!
My cute pie!
Running away from the water!
So now that summer has officially begun for us we finally had some fun in sun yesterday and today! I take care of 3 sweet kids (in addition to my sweet Ellison) 2 days a week. When we were over at their house yesterday we decided to put bathing suits on, hook up the sprinklers and play in the water! The kids had a blast and Ellison LOVED it! So once we got home yesterday afternoon I decided to pull out our baby pool and sprinkler to have ready when we are home and needing some fun in the sun! Today I met some friends at the Forrest Crossing pool. We have not been to a pool since last summer and even though Ellison loved it then I wasn't sure how much she would love it now. Well, all I can say is she LOVED it even more than last year! She would even stand on the edge of the pool and jump in (with me catching her of course). She kept wanting me to let go of her in the big pool because she thought she could just take off on her own. She is not a fan of being confined in a floating device. So Connor and I are signing her up for some Parent & Me swim lessons at the recreation center. We are going to have a fun time at the pool this summer!

Once again we had a busy and full week! I took care of kids Monday-Thursday which included lots of playdates with friends at the park, the mall, story time at the library and a trip or two to McDonald's playland :) Ellison has done absolutely wonderful in her big girl bed! She actually naps longer in it than she did in her crib. She is averaging about 2 hour naps and 11 hours at night with no interruptions. She just climbs right into her bed with a smile on her face!
Checking out some reptiles
Looking at the birds
One of her favorite animals...the Red Panda
Mommy, Ellison and The Little Bump at Alligator Cove

This blog entry is dedicated to my wonderful hubby :) He decided to start his very own blog and the theme is recipes! My husband LOVES to cook and he is really good at it. I have been blessed with marrying a cook because we all know that is not one of my strong areas :) He is the type who sort of follows a recipe, then adds his own touch of flavor or even sometimes will make up a recipe of his own. We have come across a lot of recipes that he enjoys and thought...why not share them? So take the time to check out his blog...http://isitdoneyetcb.blogspot.com
Thank you friends!
