For the Thanksgiving Holiday, we were able to spend the evening with lots of friends and family. Almost every Thanksgiving my Aunt Kathy rents out her clubhouse in her neighborhood and we all get together for good food and good times for the special holiday. Seems like every year, the family grows even more! This year we had two new additions. My cousin Tim and his wife Leigh had a little girl, Julia in October and she is absolutely adorable! Ella is only three months old, so this time next year they will be crawling or chasing after one another. It was the year for girls…well and the last four years of girls for Rob and I. :-) The kids had a great time with one another. They played hide-and-seek, tag and just about anything else they could think of to do!
Everyone is doing great! Ella is growing so much and so quickly. She really wants to sit up and look at what is going on around her. If you lay her on her back, she will try and sit up! It looks like she is doing a perfect sit up…well I have been working with her on that when I am going over my fitness routines at home (totally just kidding!!) Seriously though, for such a little peanut, Miss Ella is a strong little girl, just like her older two sisters.
Taylor and Caroline absolutely adore Ella. They love talking to her and making her laugh. Now Rob and I are just trying to make Taylor and Caroline understand that Ella can hear and see them just fine and there is really no need for them to get right in her face!! I know on occasion I use just a little bit of a different tone of voice when talking to Ella. Taylor has really picked up on this and does quiet an extreme baby talk voice with Ella!!! It is a little much and we have asked to back down from it a bit, although I must say Ella thinks Taylor is hilarious. Taylor usually gets a big smile or a sweet laugh from Ella. It is just priceless.
Caroline, Ellie and Ella
This might be the one and only picture we have of Uncle Adam and the girls. We were so glad he was there to celebrate with us. Wish Taylor had her eyes open in this one. She is at that stage where she likes to be really silly for pictures though…still a sweet pic
Caroline and Aiden
We REALLY tried to get a picture of the three girls…not a good framer but a keeper :)
Just some random pictures from this month.
This one just makes me laugh!!!
Ella is doing so well sitting in her Bumbo and thinks Mommy is so funny too!
