E attended her very first little birthday party today, it was adorable! Her friend Lizzy is 2 weeks older and just turned one! They played in the baby pool, ate lots of goldfish, wore adorable party hats and helped Lizzy open her gifts. By the time the party was winding down all the babies were worn out!
First thing in the morning is one of my favorite times of day with sweet Ella. She wakes up so fresh and happy. Ready to take on the day! Every morning when I come to get her she squeals with glee. It melts my heart. After her bottle it's on to breakfast. Here are a few shots from the other day. P.S. Isn't she looking SO old?!
Only 1 month to go until the big 0-1! E is busy as ever crawling all over the place, and standing on everything. Just yesterday I found laying/flailing on top of a stool and on top of her toy bin. She's turning into quite the daredevil! She was such a passive little infant, she really had us fooled! While she's still sweet as pie, she is much more adventuresome, and tests the limits much more than we expected. She keeps our lives interesting!
We made the most of our day off by exploring the Oregon wine country, or at least one region. It was a real treat to wander the beautiful country roads and to enjoy some of the finest Pinot Nior's Oregon has to offer. E enjoyed herself as well. While we had a great time on the road, we are glad to be home for awhile!
