As you read a few days ago, Ella is growing like a weed. She is so long, she has outgrown a lot of her 3-6 month clothes. It seems like each week we retire a couple more outfits. As she grows, it's fun to see her do new things. This week she has really started holding onto her bottles. She tries to help hold it while she's eating, but she straightens her arms and pushes it away. She's so strong when she does it, that it's hard to hold it in her mouth.
She has started doing this super adorable stretch in the past couple weeks. She stretches out her arms and legs as far as they'll go, and she thinks it's the funniest thing. I'll try to get a picture of it for you next week. It's really too cute.
When she's lying down, she's using her abs so much more than she ever has. It's like she's doing crunches all the time. The past few days she has rolled onto her stomach several times, but she has yet to figure out how to roll back.
Since it was Valentine's Day this week, Ella and I decided to have a little arts & crafts time. We made Mike a Valentine, and he displayed it in his office!
It has been another busy hockey weekend--four games over the course of three days. Because Ella and I have been cooped up in the house, I decided to take her to a game on Friday and Saturday. It was really loud so she wasn't a huge fan, but it was nice to get out and see some friends.

The giggles and smiles are still the best thing ever, and we keep getting more of them all the time!
