Finally - some new pics!

Wow, way too long since I updated. We are doing good. Ella is getting to be such a big girl now. Still not saying much but she definitely comprehends so I am trying not to worry. The weather WAS beautiful so we have been spending so much time outside. Ella loves the outdoors. She doesn't have but a few toys, but she likes to walk around and pick up sticks. We found a simple slide for $5 on craigslist. Ella loves it. The only downside to going outside is that we can't get her back in without a fight. Her tantrums have gotten so bad. Fortunately they don't happen too often. I am learning the best way is to just not give in.

I am very bummed- I made a prototype of Ella's 2nd birthday invites. It turned out so cute! I worked so hard on it too. Then last night I went to put away the stamps I had cleaned and I couldn't find the number 2. They are clear stamps so hard to see against the white paper towel where they were drying. I scoured the floor and even stuck my hand in the garbage disposal with food in it! Ew. I think it is lost :(. I am going to try to find a similar sized 2 but it will mean having to buy a whole set of numbers. Dave is so sweet though. He was telling me to just buy a new set of the birthday stamps ($15!!). Just not worth it. If I have to do the "2", I could just draw it in. More work though. I could just have no 2 also. I just hate when things walk away like that! So frustrating.

Ok here are some pics from the last couple of months. I am trying to organize our photo site so I can email family and friends pics. So maybe by the time she's three I can send updates. Loved ones, don't hold your breath!

Wow I think you spelled it right on. See I dont even know all the time. I have to think about it, then still call my mom to dbl check. She does look like Saoirse sometimes but I think she looks even more like Sydney (my sister's 2nd).
