Little Pilot!

Last Friday, Ellie and I went on a field trip to the UC Davis airport with a few other mom's and their children. We had so much fun! Ellie loved checking out all the airplanes and even got to get in one and drive it! (or I guess I should say fly it? oops, I definitely said drive it in the video) :) We got to see a plane land and take off which was really cool, and Ellie waved hi and bye to the airplane until she couldn't see it anymore. She was totally into it which was so fun. I thought the loud noises might scare her a little, but she was as happy as can be and was not bothered one bit! It was a fun experience and one that I'm sure we will be doing again in the future. Here are a few pictures and also a video of the cutest little pilot ever! :)

Uh-Oh!

Ellie is really into coloring right now. She loves to color in her coloring books and on her big sketch pad which is great!...but she discovered a new favorite place to display her artwork which is not so great- the bathroom door! Thank goodness for washable color crayons! :)
We think Ellie may be left-handed. She definitely favors her left so far, but she uses her right hand alot too. So I guess we'll just have to wait and see...

Here are a few pictures of our coloring cutie!

such a big girl

Love this smile!

this is WAY more fun to color on TOP of the table!



look Mama, isn't it pretty?!

Nana's Visit!

My mother-n-law came to visit us this last weekend and we had so much fun with her! This visit she was able to stay a few extra days (rather than a quick weekend trip where we try to squeeze in as much as possible in 1 1/2 days) so it really felt like we were able to spend good quality time together and of course Ellie loved having the extra time with her Nana! We always look forward to "Nana visits" too because it gives us a good excuse to go out to eat, shop, etc... which is always such a fun treat! We are so thankful for Jan and appreciate so much her love for Ellie and for us too. :) Here are some super cute pictures from the weekend. As you will see, Ellie is becoming such a Nana's girl...it is so precious.

Princess Fairy

Ellie's new favorite thing is to play dress up by wearing her pretty princess fairy wings. It is absolutely adorable! Ellie went to her friend's birthday party last weekend and the theme was a princess fairy tea party...so so cute! That is where she got her wings. Ellie will bring them out to me and then hold up her arms so I can put them on her. I guess I'm going to have to start looking for little dress up clothes for her. :) Here are some pictures of our little fairy......My 1 1/2 year old is growing up waaayyy too fast. :(
