Growing up way to fast!

Ella snuggled up next to daddy!

We love when we see that sweet smile!

She loves her swing until her brother comes and gives it a extra push!

I had to take a picture of Nelson on this day because he was dressed in normal clothes and actually let me do his hair. He looks so handsome!

I can't believe that my litle Ella will be 3 months old in a couple of days. She is getting so big. She had her 2 month check-up a couple weeks ago and she is looking really good. She now weighs 11 lbs 7 oz and is 23.5 inches long. We love her so much and can't imagine our lives without her!

Ella's Blessing!

We blessed Ella on Easter Sunday. I know it sounds a little weird but, that is when we could have family come. Roger gave a wonderful belssing and Ella looked so PRECIOUS! She was able to wear the same dress that I did when I was blessed so that was really neat. Thank you everyone for coming and making Ella's day extra special!

Lots and Lots of Cousins

I LOVE this picture of all three kids. They look so cute! Ayla was such a nice girl to Ella!

Nelson loves his cousin Carson. Carson is so good with little kids.

Nelson's cousin Kiana was so good to play with him all day long. She did whatever he wanted her to do. She was giving Nelson a wagon ride and he told her it was her turn for a ride. It was so funny when we looked out the window and Nelson was pulling Kiana. I guess he is learning how to share and take turns!

Nelson helping his daddy wrestle!
April was such a fun busy month. We had a lot family visit and it was so fun to see everyone. Nelson absolutely LOVED having so many cousins come to play. We had fun going to the Kangaroo Zoo, Having a Birthday Party, Easter Egg Hunts, and Most of all just running around playing and having fun!

I was tagged by my sister to find the 6th picture in my 6th folder. Here it is. I can't believe how time goes by so fast. I can't really remember when Nelson was that small. I love the look on his face. Those were the days before tantrums. Maybe one day my sweet little boy will return!

2 weeks old!

Here are some pictures of Ella at 2 weeks. She is now 3 weeks old. Time is going by so fast. We love having our little girl in our home and Nelson REALLY loves having a sister(a little to much sometimes.) So far she is a really good baby. She only cries when she is hungry. She loves to eat and sleep. She hates me trying to take pictures of her so it is sometimes hard to get them. Nelson has been pretty good for the most part. There has been plenty of tantrums and him reverting back to a baby at times. He gets mad at mom when I have to feed Ella and loves to tell me "go away mom" ,but I know he still loves me. He has definitely turned into a daddy's boy and gets so sad every morning when he wakes up and daddy isn't home. We are also very thankful to have grandparents who live close by I don't know what I would do without them. Its been an adjustment having 2 kids ,but I think we are finally starting to get the hang of it. I wouldn't trade being a mom for anything else in the world! I love my 2 kids so much!

Walking out of the hospital!

Ever since I had little Ella I have been wondering if anyone else after having a baby has walked out of the hospital instead of being pushed out in a wheelchair? It was very weird to me when I called the nurse to tell her we were ready to leave I was expecting her to sit me in a wheelchair like I had done with Nelson and wheel me down to the car ,but no I just walked right down to the car. I did have a very fast and easy delivery ,but still I was a little surprised. So let me know if anyone has ever heard of this before. It just seems a little strange to me ,but maybe it isn't.
