This is how I feel......

This explains our lives lately!!!!!

I guess you have to know Ella Claire to appreciate this really. She never falls asleep anywhere unless she is being rocked or riding in the car. However, Wednesday afternoon I was working and Bryan was making dinner and this is what we found. I guess all this finally caught up with her too. We need a vacation after moving.

11 things about Ella Claire at 11 months

My sweet baby girl is growing so fast. She turned 11 months last Sunday. Here are a few things about her...

  1. I am walking EVERYWHERE!

  2. I am little Miss Independent. (She only wants to eat or drink what she can feed herself. She doesn't want anyone to help her. She wants to do everything herself. LOL)

  3. I have 8 teeth now and have learned to BITE (and it hurts sooo bad). I think it is so funny when I hurt my Mommy.

  4. I love chocolate. My Mommy and Daddy aren't happy about this one, but Nanny Matheny shared her breakfast of Sundrop and a Hershey's bar every morning while we stayed with her. That chocolate is some GOOD stuff. :)

  5. I like to play the drums with my Mommy's pots and a spoon.

  6. My hair is curly in the back.....very curly.

  7. My favorite words right now are....Daddy, Baby, Bye, Pa, Jax and.....Momma, only when I'm tired or hurt.

  8. I love to pretend that I am typing on Mommy's laptop. I can work, too. :)

  9. I like to play chase with my Daddy up and down the hall at our new house. My Daddy is so silly.

  10. I never sit still for 2 seconds at a time. If I'm awake I am on the go, go, go. I am very active and just a little high strung as my Mommy says. Whatever that means. :)

  11. I have a little temper. I can throw a full out temper tantrum when I am mad cause, yes, I am a little drama princess. :)

Ella the Elephant

more to come of my sweet elephant

Sunday, November 2, 2008

I'm behind...

due to moving all day Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday of last week. Then, I've had to work all day today to get caught up on WORK WORK (and I'm sick.) So, I'll try and post Halloween pictures of Ella the Elephant (if I can find my camera) this week.

The painter is moving right along on the house. Bryan and my favorite Heating and Air Man (Brent Craven) are starting on the tile this week and carpet has been ordered. Thank goodness the hardwood is in pretty good shape. Thanks goes to our wonderful friends Brent and Mendie Craven (and David and Brynn) for all of their help on Saturday. I know you had no idea what you were getting yourselves into, but we sure appreciate you guys. Sherwin Williams and Lowes have become our favorite hang outs lately and my new hobby is picking out fixtures and such it seems. LOL

And.......until further notice we are nomads. Right now we are staying with my in-laws. I'm sure after only one night they are rethinking this arrangement. (Watch out Gran and Bim)LOL Thanks, Nanny and Pa for taking us in until the house is ready.

Be our friend......

About Me

My photo
The two most important things about me are that I am a wife to Bryan and mother to Ella Claire. I have been married to my best friend for 3 1/2 years. Bryan teaches at the alternative school in our hometown and coaches high school wrestling. I enjoy my job, which allows me to remain home with Ella Claire alot, but also help other children as well. I love spending time with my family, cooking, traveling, reading, watching movies, UT football, gardening and stamping. I love my life!
