Ella {13 Weeks}

It's been another fun week in our house! The biggest even was Friday morning when Ella rolled over for the first time! She rolled from her back to her belly but couldn't roll back, so she got mad. I think she did it on accident and she hasn't done it since, but it's only a matter of time! Now we just have to get her rolling from her belly to her back so she doesn't get so mad.

Another fun thing she's learned how to do is look toward a voice and find that person. She seems to recognize Mike's and my voices, which is fun, and she'll look towards a sound that she recognizes, like a rattle.

She's also [pseudo-]standing with help, [pseudo-]sitting with help, and holding her head up much better. She's slobbering like crazy, but no sign of teeth. She's chewing on her hands but really nothing else. She loves bath time but hates to get out. She's smiling and giggling a lot, and making more sounds than ever before. She enjoys reading books and now looks at the pages. She's awake much more of the time, and she's again sleeping for [usually] 8 hours at night! She's so much fun!

A friend of Mike's from St. Cloud brought his girlfriend to town for a basketball game and New Year's Eve. We joined them for the game and dinner, then we came home to watch the Jays game and barely stay up until midnight. I think we're officially old and lame.

That's about all we've been up to this week. We've done a lot of relaxing and playing and avoiding the cold weather. We're really not sad that we're going to miss Minnesota's state-wide shutdown due to the frigid weather tomorrow. We hope you're staying warm wherever you are. Sending hugs from us all!
