The Bird

Is it me or is she smirking here too? 

Oh Ella!  Starting early...

I thought we'd have a few more years before we had to worry about this stuff.

Four Weeks Old

Wednesday Ella was 4 weeks old...

And as usual, being uncooperative for her pictures...
But, I was able to get this...

I have a feeling this will get harder and harder...

Look how much she's changed!

After bath time the other day, we got Ella dressed and then I walked out of the room.

When I came back in, Mike and Ella were having story time. 

Mike didn't care that Ella wasn't paying attention...

She was not looking at the book.  She may have been listening, but I think Mike was more interested in the Dr. Seuss stories than Ella at the time. 

But her face was just too cute! 
I can't wait to take more pictures next story time.

Three Weeks Old

Oh my Ella is getting bigger and older and changing so fast I can't even take it!

Today my baby is three weeks old.  I can't believe it. 

She's also been really fussy today so please understand that this is the best picture we could get out of her!  I wish she were looking a little more head on, but what are you going to do?!?

And here's how the photo shoot really went...

No smiles or smirks today...

Happy Three Week Birthday Ella!

Two Weeks Old

Happy Belated Valentine's Day!

I know I'm late on this post and you'll realize it too when you see two posts today of weekly photos, but I'll try to get my act together and post our weekly photos on Thursdays from here on out.

Since Ella was two weeks old the day after Valentine's Day and we couldn't get a good picture on Valentine's Day, we went with this! 

Too cute!  I love her little looks! 
And am hoping she'll grow into her little chicken legs, but we love everything about her! :)

Happy Two Week Birthday Ella!

Last night Mr K was snoring in his sleep...
So, I touched his nose...
Barely, I might add...
And he took his arms and started batting away with them...
Like there were objects flying above him...
It was quite comical. 

Wish I had my flip ready and recording...
But I didn't.
But now it sits bedside for just this reason...

Happy Friday!

One Week Old

Taking a page from John and Sherry over at Young House Love, I am taking a stab at weekly/monthly pictures of Ella on different fabrics.  They did this with their little Clara and they turned out too cute! 

Now I don't have a great camera, and the lighting in my house is kinda crapola, but I'm going to try. 

I had some leftover fabric from her sheets, cribskirt, and samples I'd ordered to see if we liked them.  I decided to start with an Ikat that we had. 

Here she is...

And instead of using Photoshop to edit the pictures since I haven't quite figured out my version, or if it's even capaple of doing these types of things... I decided to use Picnik which has apparently been absorbed by Google, but until it goes away, this will be what I use to edit my pictures. 

What do you think? 
I am hoping they will get better with time.

She's Here...

I know this is a bit late, but because I'm going to try to post all things Ella on this blog, and I've been on a crazy schedule the last 2 weeks, I'm just now getting around to it. 

We welcomed our little baby girl into our lives February 1st, 2012. 

She's been a joy. 
She's our little sleep and poop machine. 

Mr. K is amazed at how many diapers she goes through.  He is constantly telling her "60 cents" whenever a diaper change is necessary.  Apparently he either heard this from someone or did a little math on his own.  It's actually quite hilarious. 

We are thoroughly enjoying her and even though she's apparently inherited her great grandmother's and great grandfather's night owl genes.  She's wide awake usually from about 10-3.  Nice, I know.  The rest of the day she's sleeping.  We are hoping we get to see her big eyes more often soon! 

Going Home

Thanks for all the kind posts and comments on our babe.  She's sure to make her way out and about soon... she can't keep still!  Even in her sleep, she's moving and kicking those legs!  :)  I'm sure she'll be a wild child!
