One of those mornings before school when she was just too cute not to take a picture!
Dottie is the little mascot of Ella's brownie troop :)
We ended up with a special weekday sleepover - the girls did great together, and to say Ella was thrilled is an extreme understatement!
One of Ella's new tricks
At Parent Night for Ella's school I got to read a few pages of Ella's journal - so, so cute!
We had a huge, huge milestone - we dropped off Ella and Dottie at the childcare at the gym, and Dottie had no tears! This was the first time we tried dropping Dottie off at any type of childcare and I was fully expecting the childcare ladies to come find me after about 10 minutes. But we were so pleasantly surprised, she did great and played with Ella the whole time.
This huge bird hung out on our ladder for a while, he was really pretty and neat to watch. When he finally flew away, he had a huge wingspan

And my favorite part is the "go visit mom" section :)
She loves the mirror!
This cracked me up!
"pot on a tato" = "put on a tattoo" - ha!
