Being a mom is way too fun.
Ellie likes to dump everything out of this basket and put it on her head.
She got stuck once, so I had to take pictures before I saved her.

A Flip Book About Falling

She gets a little bit top heavy sometimes...but she really, really wanted that toy.

Thanksgiving Dinner

This year we went down to St. George for Thanksgiving to spend the week with the Lovejoys.  It was delicious!  Ellie is a big fan of stuffing, mashed potatoes, rolls, and turkey.  The winners, though, were the cinnamon applesauce jello and frog eye salad (I agree!).  Yum.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Go Cougars!

Last night, we took Ellie to her first ever BYU football game.  She had a blast looking at everything during the first and third quarters, took a nap during the second and halftime (and we left before the fourth started).  She's so much fun.  I can't believe how easy she is.  We definitely got lucky with this kid of ours.

Too bad we have to wait until next season to go again!

My Girl

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day.

When it's cold outside, I've got the month of May.

I'd guess you'd say, "What can me me feel this way?"

My girl.

We Like Her

In case you didn't already know.

One Time I Made Cupcakes

And Ellie was happy to help.

9 Months tomorrow

Technically, she still can't "walk"...but seriously, how can I not be proud? 

She will be nine months old tomorrow. It goes by so quickly...

Farmer's Market

We took Ellie to a farmer's market a couple of weeks ago.  It was pretty fun.  Ellie had a great time looking at everything and everyone.
Seriously, she's just the cutest kid ever.

All ready and waiting to go!

Little yawn

She carried that Pez dispenser the whole time.

Sleepy family on a Saturday morning.

Ellie really, really loves swinging.

Cousin Jane

Ellie loves her cousin Jane, too.  I love this picture.

Cousin Kate

Ellie is selectively social.  She loves me and Scott, my mom, Scott's sister Rachel, and a couple others.  But even as the mom, I'm still second best.  Ellie has a favorite:  her cousin, Kate.  EVERY SINGLE TIME Ellie sees Kate she squeals, flaps her arms, and pumps her legs up and down.  She loves that girl.  It might be because Kate bounces around.  It might be because Kate gives Ellie all kinds of toys.  But mostly, I think it's because Kate loves Ellie.  For the past few days, Kate and been telling Ellie that she is her "best cousin".

We think she's pretty cute.

Her favorite foods right now are bananas, sweet potatoes, Gerber Lil' Crunchies (I call them baby cheetos), and EVERYTHING Mom and Dad eat.  She's a little beggar baby.

Chelsea's Birthday

My sister Chelsea turned 20 in August.  After the festivities were over, Ellie had a great time playing with the wrapping paper.

I really like this picture.  It's like she's saying, "What, Mom?"

Teddy Bears

Ellie's great-grandma has a thing for teddy bears.  She has dozens in her living room.  Ellie was a big fan.

Wanting to give kisses/eat the bear's nose.

Oh Dear...

Remember when I used to blog?  Me too.

Want to know what changed?  Scott upgraded to the iPhone 4 (which is really cool, by the way) and I couldn't pass up his old iPhone.  So for the past couple of months, I've been on my phone and not my computer.

So there have been no new blog posts.  Until now.
I'll try to be better.
But I still like my iPhone.

Under the Table

Ellie's new favorite place to explore is under our kitchen table.  She enjoys the challenge of getting in between the posts and then trying to get out.  I've also caught her trying to eat the rungs a few times.  Naughty little girl.
