Happy One Month Birthday, Ellie!

Happy one month birthday to our sweet little Ellie. What a month it's been! Elliana is such a sweet baby. She is sleeping pretty well--seeming to settle into only one late night feeding already, but I'm not counting TOO much on that yet. :) She likes her little bouncy seat and loves riding in the car. Also, she tolerates love from her big sister very well--as the following video will show. At her last check up (8 June) she weighed in at 8 lbs 11 1/2 oz, so she is definitely feeding well. She has survived her first nasty diaper rash, a hike around a Civil War battlefield, love and smothering from her big sister, and numerous trips to the mall, Wegmans, and various parks (to entertain her big sis). Thank you, Lord, for our healthy baby girl!

Here is Elliana tolerating the love from Kate. In case you can't understand the Katespeak, she's saying "Hi, Ellie" over and over again.

Hi everyone,
What fun it is to be here with the little girls! Kate and Ellie are getting along fine and they are both such sweet girls. Mom and Dad are doing well too and are such good parents! They enjoy their children so much. It's fun to watch. Nana

So glad to see the new snaps. I just knew that Nana had to get there soometime. Ha! She looks very happy with her two girls. I bet Riley is anxious to see them. The wedding isn't that far off and we all will get our holding needs taken care of. Love You, A. Cindy
