We made a count down chain to Disneyland. Never have I been so excited for a trip! I cannot wait to see the look on Ella's face when she sees just how big the Disney castle is.

The first day of fall brought cooler weathers to the valley. I was thrilled this weekend to be able to walk outside and not be drenched in sweat. We had a picnic Saturday morning and there was a nice cool breeze. We also had breakfast outside Sunday and enjoyed the sun.
Growing up with all four seasons has made it extremely difficult to adjust to the weather in the valley. It was a nice change, I look forward to more picnics and bike rides.
Ella made some new feathery friends. She also insisted on wearing her Princess dress on our picnic.

I know it's normal for babies to love books. I wasn't sure if it was going to stick with Ella or not. This girl loves books. She loves looking at them and listening to us read. This particular morning she had taken one of my books from my side table. She just sat there looking at the pages. She told me that she was reading and that the book was about Valentines Day, Mommy, Daddy and, Ella. I don't think it's going to be too long before she's reading. Let's hope she always enjoys it.
(she always licks her finger before flipping the page)

This little miss is almost 3.5. Ella continues to expand her vocabulary and comes up with the funniest sayings. She LOVES to sing, she sings about EVERYTHING. She loves princesses and at times refuses to wear pants. She will say, "I don't want to be a Prince Mommy." She has also at times started referring to Devin and I as Mom and Dad. This just seems so grown up. I like being mommy and so, it's weird to here her say, "Hey MOM, I'm talking to you!"
She's riding her trike and loves it! She also loves dancing and coloring.
Please stop growing little Princess.

We've known for awhile that Ella's fine motor skills are exceptional. She's been enjoying writing lately. She wrote this for Papa Moosie. Mind you, obviously it says 'Papa Moomie'. She has a bit of a hard time writing the letter 's' so she figured an 'm' would work. We're very impressed with this little girl and how smart she is. The other day at dinner I was telling her to eat her fruit and her response was, "I'm just too famished mommy, you have to feed me." Smart little cookie. She's also able to spell and write Mommy. She's getting pretty close to writing Pierce as well.

We met some friends for sushi a few weeks back and brought Ella with us. We had been there before so we knew that they had a children's menu. Ella loved the 'chomp' sticks. We enjoyed watching her try and use them. In the end she ended up with a fork. On a side note, I am shocked at how much food they gave her....
