Ella's 2 Months!


Ella's two month birthday is today! To celebrate we took her to the doctor to get some shots :( Poor thing. She actually did really great though. She got six vaccinations in all. One oral, three shots. I was dreading this day for weeks and was so worried about how she would react. But the nurse was so speedy, Ella had barely started to cry and the nurse was done. She only cried for a few seconds and as soon as I picked her up, she was totally over it. What a trooper.


She weighed in at 14 pounds 4 ounces, and is 23 inches long. She is a healthy girl!! We joke that I must be producing chocolate milk or something :) But we are happy she is growing and getting strong. She is such a good baby. We are so happy to have her in our lives! Happy two month Birthday Ella!

Ella's first Angel game

Last Thursday we had the opportunity to go to the Angels vs. Red Sox play off game at Angel Stadium. Brandon's parents were able to get Diamond Club tickets behind home plate. They were pretty amazing seats. Ella got to wear her Angel's gear and experience her first game.


The game was amazing. Ella slept a lot, but she had a good time looking around at all the people. She was also very cuddly and kept us warm :)



I think she is a good luck charm because the Angels won that game and went on to sweep the Sox in that series. They are now moving on to play the Yankees in the American League Championship.


Dad was so nervous for his team, but they came through!

We had so much fun at the game and can't wait for the Angels to go all the way this year!!!

Life With Ella

Life has been crazy with our little bundle. She is now almost 8 weeks and weighs over 13 pounds! She is really starting to act less like a little ball of clay and more like a little baby. It's so cute. She makes all sorts of noises and faces. She is the most adorable thing EVER. She is such a good baby. She even went SEVEN hours between feedings last night and the night before *New record*. She is great at holding up her head and she has even rolled over twice. Here are some pics.





I am sad summer is over, but I am enjoying the cooler weather. I don't think our apartment has been below 75 degrees in the last three months, but today I woke up and it was 70 degrees! Very nice. I can finally put Ella in some of her cooler clothes. I am really looking forward to the fall. Ella is excited to meet her cousins that are coming down to visit soon! And the holidays will be here before we know it... Lots to do!
