Elly had fun looking at and moving the brightly colored animals on her floor gym. She is becoming so much more alert and aware of her surroundings!

We visited a new park together the other night. Some day Elly is going to love coming here to feed the ducks!

Elly enjoyed her first real bath in the tub recently now that her belly button has healed. She seemed amazed and relaxed by the warm water. There’s nothing like cuddling with a cute and squeaky clean baby! The bath was followed by jammies and a great night of sleep….well, as great as you can expect for a 5 week old.


Who’s That Little Boy? September 23, 2008

Is this the baby boy Daddy always wanted? Of course not! It’s actually the daughter he can’t imagine life without. Elly just had to sport her Redskins gear following their great win against Arizona.

Jamie was thrilled that the Skins won. The only thing that would have made it better was if I granted his wish and picked up Hooters wings for him. I told him I couldn’t possibly go into Hooters right now because they would put me to work due to my nursing-induced assets. As much as I love me some orange shorts with pantyhose, there is clearly no way I am stepping foot into a Hooters. What kind of example would that be for our baby girl?


Elly’s Crib September 13, 2008

Elly has been bunking with her Mom and Dad since she is such a young age and gets up a lot during the night. She did have the pleasure of taking her first nap in her beautiful crib that her Dad put together for her. It was just a catnap, but she seemed to enjoy it while it lasted. Check out some other features of her nursery.
