Birthday Picnics

Ella is totally into turning 3. She's in countdown mode now. She knows that it's June and that at the end of this month, she'll have her special day. She's been getting picnics together w/me and her animals for awhile now, but for the last couple of weeks, Ella has called them birthday picnics. Just today, she told me, "Mommy I made you a birthday picnic. Come eat your birthday food." I think she assumes we're all going to celebrate our birthdays on her special day!














We're so loving the pool. Now that it's warmer (86 degrees in the water!), we're swimming most every day. Ella's a little fish; with her floaties on, she can swim all the way to the deep end and back. And she jumps off the side of the pool into our waiting arms. Maybe she doesn't need those swim lessons at the Y after all. :-)












And, I turn 6 months tomorrow-yay! The crib bedding has arrived. I chose this pattern, as I could never find the fabric to mach the memo board I had. (Scroll down to the 3rd pic and enlarge, so you can see how it looks w/all the bedding on the crib.) And no, I didn't pay this price; thankfully, I got it used for much cheaper! Even though it doesn't match my original plan exactly, at least it's still a zoo theme in primary colors. Hopefully the green walls will get painted in a couple weeks, and I'll post a pic when it's all set up.

Absolute too sweet, adorable, precious, you name it she is! I know Little Mama loves to wrap things or put toys in a bag and come give it to someone for their birthday! It is always someone's birthday! Really cute until she has to put back ALL of the toys.

Six months already? Time is flying. Love the bedding. Of course, who does not love Pottery Barn stuff! oh the pool must feel great for you at this stage of pregnancy.

Hey, Laura! Glad y'all enjoying the pool. Can't believe Ella is getting so big. Just wanted to say hi... Love you.

hey, did you get a new camera? Your pictures look really bright and colorful! The first one has a blur shine to it. Not sure how to explain it but it looks really great!

I love the bedding! Pretty close to your original idea too. Glad you are loving the pool!!

Elizabeth said...

Hey girl! I sent you emails- did you get them? Email me back if not.

Letisha,
Funny you should say that. I thought they looked neat too but Will said, "Why are they so blurry?" Turns out it was just smudges on the lens I hadn't cleaned in awhile. :-)

Hopefully we'll be getting a new camera soon.
