Woo Hoo, Go Colts!

As I’ve been talking about, yesterday was Ella’s, Brad’s, and my first NFL game. We went to go check out the local Denver Broncos playing our hometown Indianapolis Colts. Sure we got the comments that we were wearing the wrong Jerseys (although, what was the outcome of the game? Oh yeah, the “wrong” jerseys won. =) ) but it was a blast. If it wasn’t 91 degrees, it would have been perfect! Here are some photos from tailgating and the game.

She wore her Colts jammies the night before to get ready for game day! =)

Tailgating with Daddy

Taking a little nap on Mommy to be ready for game time.

Here come the Indianapolis Colts!

And it was a great outcome for the fans of the “wrong team”!
As I said above, the Colts won, which made the ridiculous record breaking heat ALMOST bearable.

Ta Da!

As you can see the new blog design is up and running, I LOVE it!
Melanie was a joy to work with, so if anyone is looking for a new blog design I would reccomend heading over to Elegant Custom Blogs you won’t regret it!

Daddy fed me my dinner.

A post of pictures from the other night when Daddy was in charge of feeding. =)

This is after 3 bites, seriously. =)

See her hand?
And it’s already on her nose!

“What, you’ve never seen me eat before?!”

Do you see the two little green splats at on & near Lucy’s tail? Yes, she too wore the Avacado.

Check out those hands and her shoulder, she is pleased with herself.

And as you can see, she even got the seat of the high chair in on the action.

 Do you see why I let her eat topless when daddy feeds her? =)

I’m doing Pull Ups, the awesome kind. . . .

So, I never said my baby girl wasn’t a strong one. She’s strong willed (read stubborn ::cough::: hates rolling over :::cough:::), has the strongets little legs, and now when you throw in her amazing biceps strong arms, you get pulling up. That’s right, she pulled up to standing twice on Tuesday night! It was awesome! Just wanted to document that. =)

I’m a WINNER! =)

Baby Crack & a tooth too!

So, on Monday we let Ella try what the stores like to call “Baby Yogurt”. I call complete and total BS, that stuff is CRACK! The girl who we had to wrestle to eat 2 ounces of purees (and we’d maybe get her to eat a full ounce, MAYBE!) will eat a 4 oz container of baby yogurt in a sitting, SCREAM at you if you aren’t shoveling it in fast enough, and now REFUSES to eat anything else. She shakes her head no, turns her face away, and clamps those lips shut if you’re trying to spoon anything else in. Grrr. . . . .
In other news, Ella cut her first tooth! Last Wednesday, the 15th, it finally popped through. It is her bottom center left tooth and it is taking it’s sweet time coming all the way but it has broken through and thriving. Now with the explosions and sleepless nights we’ve had the past couple of days, I think #2 is well on it’s way. Here’s a picture of her solo tooth in all of it’s (horrible picture!) glory!

Her poor bottom and top gums are still SO swollen so I hope these teeth all come in soon, plus I need some sleep or I don’t know what’s gonna happen. =)
