Happy Easter

This is Ellie's first Easter.
On Saturday, we got to go to an Easter Egg Hunt which was fun. However, Ellie wasn't really into collecting eggs for some reason.
My friend Tania found this vintage outfit and made it into a dress before Ellie was born. It's one of my favorite little dresses she's worn. So adorable.
Someone did share their eggs for the photo op. Ellie was not a candy stealing threat I guess.

Today, Sunday, Ellie woke up to an Easter basket filled with goodies. Books, teething toy, rubber duckies, elephant watering can, and a bouncy soccer ball.
She wore one of my old outfits today that my mom saved. She sure looked pretty. 

We had Easter dinner with a few other couples who each had a baby. It was fun to all get together. Here is James and Ellie (who just woke up from her car seat nap).

Happy Easter everyone!

Mommy and Daughter

Mommy-daughter time is very special. I was determined to capture some special moments with Ellie. I directed James on what I wanted and he took the pictures. I am so proud of him. I love these so much and had a hard time picking my favorites. 

and because daddy loves Ellie too...

3 months old

This little girl has brought me such joy the past 3 months. I am grateful to be her mommy. 

Behind the scenes: She can't sit on her own yet so she fell over MANY times before I got a good picture. 

Despite our best efforts, I couldn't capture a giggly smile, other than this one.

Happy Birthday Melissa

February 25th was my Birthday. It was a great day. Ellie and I hung out. Got all pretty. Went to lunch with a friend and dinner with daddy later that night. It was really low key, but spending my birthday with my family was very special.

I just woke Ellie up for a picture before we left for the night so she looks a little dazed.
