8 Weeks Old!!

How does time go so fast in life? Ella is 8 weeks old this Wednesday and will share the date with her dad's birthday of 32 - he is approaching his middle 30's quickly!

Ella has been doing great with her routine - she is eating about every 3 hours and takes a few naps in the morning but is up most of the afternoon into the evening - she has slept through the night on a few occasions. If she does not sleep through the night she is only waking up once. She is really starting to follow things as she has discovered the moving parts located above her swing and is also fascinated by lights - at some point we all were that easily entertained! "Gammy" (aka Linda) and "Grandpa" (aka Jerry) spent last week with Malia and Ella while David was at a wedding in Milwaukee then in Denver for work (David paid dearly for his 48 hours of fun in Milwaukee as he realized he can't keep up with the big boys and got strep throat). We have been using the running stroller with the car seat secured to the frame with a special adaptor - talk about a work out running up a hill with her in the stroller! The dogs join us every once and awhile but the boys have really adjusted to Ella and pretty much just ignore her - they do sleep in her room from time to time.

Ella gets her shots next week and we are trying to prepare ourselves for the sad event - we have heard it can be pretty rough for the little one. August will be a busy month with visits from both of Ella's uncle and Dee Dee and Grandad will come too - she is very excited! Stay tuned....
