Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs in my field, since the payment is pure love.

Name the Famous Felon

Her manifesto will be about bubbles, Mickey Mouse, and Julius.

Running in the Sprinkler

Today we let Elliana play in the sprinkler for the first time. She loved it! We could hardly get her to stop playing to eat dinner.

Pool Party

Now that it is finally warm out, Elliana is loving the swimming pool! We have had a few pool parties with our neighbors.
Elliana and her friend Avery love playing in the pool together.
Our little bathing beauty loves to splash.We finally got a little pool at our house. And Elliana loves it!

Wild Woman!

Post-nap wild woman hair!

Date with Paps

Paps and Elliana love their dates. And they love to share iced tea on their lunch dates!

Show Week!

This was Show Week at the Little Gym, where Elliana has been taking classes for a year now. She was so excited for her show and even more excited that daddy and Paps got to come!
One of Elliana's favorite parts of class is the opening circle. The kids get to use the bells while the parents sing the welcome song. She loves to shake the bells!
During class, the kids get to do bubbles to work on some fine motor skills. With Elliana's love of bubbles, she adores this part of class.
Ellie loves at the end of class when she gets her stamps. She knows when it's time to sit on the window wall it means she is going to get her reward for doing a good job in class.
At the end of the show this week, all of the kids got their awards. Each child was called up one at a time to get their medal. After all the kids had their medals, we got a class picture. Such a good looking group!
Ben, Ellie's friend from class, wasn't so sure about having his picture taken with her. It could be that she randomly hugs and kisses him.

Sick Baby

Poor Elliana had a bad virus last weekend. She ended up in the ER at Cincinnati Children's with a fever of 104.3 degrees. She was miserable. Thankfully they said she just had a virus, and a day later she was feeling much better.
Nothing helps a sick girl feel better than cuddling on the couch with daddy for a nap (with a little Mickey Mouse Clubhouse).We are so glad our girl is feeling better!
