Ella Grace enjoyed her time with Grampa and Eema last week. Grampa taught Ella Grace how to move forward (instead of her usual scooch backwards) by using a Reese cup(she loved the shiny paper).

9 month stats

Height - 27 inches
Weight - 18 lbs 6.5 oz

Ella Grace received 2 shots and a finger prick. She was so intrigued by the band-aid on her finger after the finger prick.

This month has been such a fun month with Ella Grace. She has slowly started creeping/crawling, started on the sippy cup, moved out of the baby tub and into the sink. Her favorite foods right now are shredded cheese, Cheerios', and yogurt. She loves to play peek-a-boo and clap her hands. She now reaches for us when she wants to be picked up. She has also started to realize when she throws things over the edge of her highchair and exersaucer that they land on the floor, its so cute to see her little head peek over the edge looking for her toys. She has also started to sing with us when we sing to her. My favorite thing of all that has happened this month is Ella Grace says MOM!!!

lazy saturdays...

Every weekend Daddy gets up and makes us our favorite... pancakes! We are so lucky~

We spend Ella Grace's first New Year's Eve with Brian's family. Ella Grace was a champ. She didn't make it until the ball dropped, but she tried really hard. One of her favorite parts of the night was playing with her cousin, Rachel's bracelet. At one point in the evening, Ella Grace was intently watching football on her Uncle Alex's lamp, and 2 seconds later I looked and she was out cold.

I scream..You scream...We all scream for ice cream!

Ella Grace had her first taste of ice cream with Papa. She loved it, she kept licking her little lips. When I put her to bed a few hours later she was still licking them!

Christmas with Grampa, Eema, Uncle Jud, Uncle Greg, and Auntie Rebs!

We flew up the day after Christmas to celebrate with our family in Muncie. We had a blast! EllaGrace learned how to eat cheerios, loved watching the train under the tree with Grampa, helped celebrate my birthday at Flemmings steakhouse (watch out boys she already has expensive taste), sled rides, baths in the kitchen sink, camera lessons from Uncle Greg...lunch date with Grampa, shopping with Eema! Ella Grace loved grabbing Heidi's tail and brushing her face in her hair, every time Heidi's tail brushed by EllaGrace, she burst out laughing.

Snow! Snow!

When we were visiting our family up in Indiana for Christmas it snowed! We were so excited because this was the first time Ella Grace has seen snow. Grampa got Ella Grace a little sled and off to the park we headed. At first Ella Grace didn't know what was going on.... But as our time went on, she began sticking her little tongue out to catch the snowflakes.

3 peas in a pod

Santa came!!!

One of Ella Grace's favorite things to do is jump. Soooo the big man with the beard found the perfect gift for exersaucer that she can jump in. We had so much fun with her on her first Christmas morning. Daddy got us some donuts while I made some coffee and Ella Grace jumped in her exersaucer. After that we headed out to mass at 10 am and Ella Grace loved all the beautiful music. When mass ended we took her up to the altar to check out the nativity. She loved the donkey the best.

Christmas with Nana and Papa

Santa was sooooo good to me this year. He brought me a new camera. Here are some shots from day 1 with the new camera. We spent the day with Nana and Papa and that evening Aunt Sue and Uncle Alex came to see us too! Ella Grace got a little car to ride in and she loves it. She received so many fun toys, but her favorite of all was the wrapping paper~
