Ella is 9 months old.

Our baby girl is 9-months-old now. Time flies!

This is such a fun stage. She is into everything and always on the move. We get to see more and more of her sweet and social personality.

* Is on the move!
* Loves to blow kisses
* Loves to roll her tongue
* Loves to huff and puff
* Is pulling herself up
* Claps for herself and for others
* Loves to kiss herself in the mirror
* Loves to bang the doorstops and listen to the loud rattling noise they make
* Is a tough-cookie – now that she is crawling, she doesn’t look where she’s going and bonks her head on walls and furniture. She just looks up at me a smiles.
* Screams. Loud.
* Is a social butterfly. Loves being around other babies and kids.
* And, she has a *thing* for shoes. If there are shoes around…she will find them and have them in her mouth.

The Ostrich Festival.

I took Ella to the Chandler Ostrich Festival today. Yes, you read that correctly. The Ostrich Festival. Ella LOVES animals so we went to the petting zoo. Then, we went to watch the Ostrich race. Did you know there are Ostrich jockeys! I swear. It was an experience!!

Here is Ella at the race trying to fit in.

When I turn my back.

So, Ella has this love of cords. Any type of cord- she wants to chew on it. The computer, my flat iron, TV cords, Lamp cords...anything.

Here she is munching on the DVD cords.

We are such great parents!

Ella is on the move.

Hello Blog, I’m back.

I’m so sorry. I haven’t posted an updated in awhile. Cam is always getting on me to update our blog…to me it is just “one more thing to do.”

But, I love blog-stalking my friends and family. So, here’s our update.

Life has been very busy the last couple of months. Cam has been working a ton and I started a marketing consulting business. The combination of the new business and Ella on-the-move…life is crazy.

Yes, Ella is now crawling. As first-time-parents, we didn’t realize how much this changes everything!

Now that Ella is on-the-move...this is how I get ready in the morning. Ella kicks-it in the tub with her toys.
