Ella riding her bike up the sidewalk toward our house
On the seesaw with James at the playground
Swinging across the monkey bars all by herself!
Trying out her roller skates from Grandma and Grandad for the first time!
Cutting roses to bring inside
Asleep and snuggling with Cory
We had an overnight adventure a few weeks ago for Founders Day, a West Point alumni function in uptown that we went to with the Burtons. We got adjoining rooms and Ella and Jake had such a blast together, it was party time!
Crimped hair - I braided it wet and Ella slept in the braids, and loved her 'do in the morning :)
Having fun at a gymnastics birthday party
We went to our first crawfish boil!
Over the week of spring break for the public school calendar, Ella's school had free dress for the week (no uniforms) and she was so excited to pick out her clothes for school each day. The first day I tried to steer her to at least pick out a few things that matched, and she said very logically, "Mommy, it's my free dress day, not yours."
Our first red strawberry!
