First Cereal

Well we had our first cereal feeding last night. She did not seem too excited with it as you can tell from these pictures. So we had a few bites and then decided to try it again tomorrow.

Thanks to Uncle Philip...

Look at what Uncle Philip has been teaching our child....we look over at
her yesterday drinking her bottle and this is what we see.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Well the Parker family had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. We had a new member to the family celebrating with us and it was absolutely wonderful. Daddy did have to work today, but thats okay. We went up to the fire station and hung out with him for a little while. Ella didn't get to partake in any turkey and stuffing, but her bottles sure were yummy. We heard her first hearty laugh last week and it was the best sound I've ever heard. It melted my heart. Also we will be starting to eat some cereal on Sunday. So check back later for pictures from that adventure. We hope everyone had a safe and joyous holiday today!

Rolls Galore

My daughter will probably hate me for this one day, but this is my job. For those of you that don't get to see Ella very often...she is the yummiest baby ever. Look at these rolls!!!!

Thank you Nana and Aunt Debbie!

She was watching football. Mommy and Daddy are excited about that one.

We would like to thank Nana and Aunt Debbie for buying Ella the rainforest jumper. We set it up for her and she just loves it! On another note, everyone in the Parker house is adjusting well to Mommy being back to work. Ella's having a good time with Daddy during the day. However, Ella will be starting the daycare the Monday after Thanksgiving, so say a little prayer for Mommy and Daddy. And everyone in the Parker house has been sick. Even Ella...she has her first runny nose. She's handling it very well. No extra crankiness, just an upset baby when I use the nose plunger. She can't stand it! But overall everyone is getting better and just looking forward to the holidays coming up!

Brianna and Pregnancy

Me and my friend Jenny at her shower 2 days before Ella arrived. Can you tell I was over it? :)

This was a couple weeks before Ella arrived.

Well I just realized a lot of you never got to see me pregnant. Not the best site but never the less interesting. Anyway, I had a wonderful pregnancy. No sickness (not once!), just heartburn and major swelling. But as long as I wasn't sick I was doing great. I actually enjoyed it and felt beautiful. Might not have looked it, but definitely felt it. Ha! Anyway here are a couple of pics for everyone to see. The end result is way worth it. It was the best thing I've ever done in my whole entire life!

Cutest Strawberry Ever

Well, Ella was a strawberry for Halloween this year. We strolled her around and went trick-or-treating with our neighbors. She didn't get too excited as she was asleep with 15 minutes of our trick-or-treating journey. But she still had fun and looked adorable.

First Day with Daddy

Since Mommy started back to work this week, Ella has gotten to hang out a whole bunch with Daddy. Ella and Mommy are so proud of Daddy. He's doing a wonderful job!! Here is her first outfit that Daddy dressed her in on Monday. I guess he wanted everyone to know how Ella felt (notice the shirt).

Learning some Head Control and LOVING some hands

Yummy Hands!

"This blue, yellow, and green thing is pretty cool."

Well Ella is getting so much better with her head control. She is trying so hard to pull herself up and starts to get frustrated when she can't. She is also loving her hands. She thinks that they are the yummiest things in the world.
