3 1/2 months

What a great mothers day! We went to Camp Blue Haven to visit Jim's parents this past week and we had a great time. The weather was beautiful! Ella had a great time playing in the sand with her JU-JU and riding the mule with her dad and grandad.

Sadie has become quite the social bug this past week. She is smiling all the time and loves to talk up a storm. She has also discovered her hands and sucks on them profusely when trying to go to sleep. I am so proud of her she has slept in her own bed for the past 2 weeks and is sleeping 7 to 9 hours straight. We are having a great time with her and Ella is really starting to play with her a lot. Ella tries to teach Sadie everything. One of Ellas favorite things to do is to wave at Sadie, or Jo-Jo as Ella calls her, and then grab Sadie's hand and wave back at herself. She also talks to Sadie in a baby voice. Wonder where she learned that one.

Ella is so much fun and is talking so much. She repeats everthing you say and do. Today I was addressing birth announcements (I know they're about 2 months behind, but at least I did them.) Ella found a piece of paper and started licking it. I said "no Ella don't put that in your mouth." I thought to myself what is she doing? Then I realized she had seen me lick the envelopes and she was doing it too. One of her favorite things to do is to ride the lawnmower with her dad. Actually anthing dad is doing is great fun so she has to do it with him. Her favorite word these days is Ella or this week ME. If she wantes to go do something she says me, me, me and points to herself. She has also decided in the past few weeks that she no longer wants to go to Bible Class. Nothing happened she just wants to be with her daddy AT ALL TIMES!
