Happy Friday!

Is my toddler the only one that is impossible to photograph? She is constantly on the move and I can never get a picture fast enough. One day I hope to take a photography and a photoshop class and learn how to take great pictures but until then my amateur photography skills will have to do.

Some videos of Ella

Here are some videos I took with my cell phone today. The first one is of Ella practicing her American Idol audition. There is this one song that we listen to in the car that has a choir singing at the end, every time that part comes on Ella starts singing away.

The next video is Ella going on a Winnie the Pooh ride at Kroger that she hated. She got really excited when we walked by it so I thought "Let's put her on!" She wanted off as soon as we put the quarters in.

6 months pregnant! 112 days to go!

I'm 6 months pregnant today! Our baby is pretty much developed and is just putting weight on, along with mommy =) I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going! I can't wait to meet our new baby!!! I have been feeling great so far! I have been working out a lot this pregnancy which I hope helps me have a quick and easy labor as well as a comfortable pregnancy. I have actually really enjoyed it and I wish I had done it when I was pregnant with Ella. "Healthy Body, Healthy Baby!" That's what my fitness coach Denise Austin tells me everyday =)
We still don't have any names chosen. I'm completely convinced we are having another girl so I haven't even really been thinking of boy names.
Here are some pictures of me at 6 months pregnant. Take our poll and guess what the baby is.

Yes, mommy is forcing her to give my belly loves

Are we having a boy or a girl?

17 months old!

Here are some pictures I have taken of Ella this week. She's growing up so fast, and turning into a little toddler more and more everyday. I think she gets more beautiful everyday too =)

Grandpa and Nana's visit

Paul's parents flew in for the weekend for a quick visit. Though it was a short trip we had a lot of fun and enjoyed them being here. Ella had so much fun with her Grandpa and Nana and enjoyed all the special attention, and all the donut holes she got from Grandpa =) We went shopping at the mall and they got Ella the cutest little dress for her to wear when it warms up. It's so cute that we will have to get her pictures taken in it. We played many games of Settler's of Catan, and I realized I'm not as good at the game as I thought but I still had fun.
We had a great weekend together, and we can't wait for them to come visit again!
