Redneck Riviera

Well we came home from work and school and went swimming the other day. Ella just loves any kind of pool water. She was sticking her whole face in the water and loving it. Even Tanner had to get in on the action.

After Bath Hair

Nose in the Books

Tanner is studying up on his ABC's. He's in competition with Ella.

All better....

Still loves her bath

Tanner and Ella playing tug-of-war with Tanner's toy get one end and I'll get the other

This is her clapping face...

Hi Mom...

Showing all 6 beautiful teeth

Another crazy sleeping position we find her in

I'm forecasting another accountant...:)

Well we've had a rough couple of weeks...Ella had a nasty virus and then she so kindly passed it on to Mommy. Ella was so pitiful but her MeMaw was here to help make her feel better. Thank you MeMaw! But now everyone is feeling 10 times better. But she is just growing so much and doing so many new things. She's absolutely amazing to watch. She is now pulling herself all the way up, and crawling everywhere. She likes to read books, wave, loves the calculator, tv remotes, and phones (cell phones and the house phone). We know if it's quiet then she's up to something. And her 1 year birthday is just in two weeks. I can not believe that a year has already flown by. Anyway we hope everyone is well and here are a couple of random pictures that were taken around the house.

For those with Daughters

Just think,
your daughter is here not by chance,
but by God's choosing.
His hand formed her and
made her the person she is.
He compares her to no one else -
she is one of a kind.
She will lack nothing
that His grace can't give her.
He has allowed her to be here
at this time in history
to fulfill His special purpose
for this generation.

Hilton Head, SC

The house we stayed in is behind Jeremy and Ella.

A big diaper butt, wrinkely feet, and a cellphone...what more could you need?

Mommy's funny

Giving Mommy kisses

Crazy girl

Not happy with the water

Once again...using the tongue

Trying to taste the wind

How cute are they?

I use this tongue for everything

Storm coming in

Buddy...are you sure you know what you're doing?...Well I'm here to help.

Well, we had a fabulous week in Hilton Head, SC. Once again Ella was wonderful on the flights. She had a grand ole time in mine and Jeremy's lap on the way there and then slept the whole way home (both flights with ear infections). But if any of you with babies think it is going to be a relaxing beach week...think again! It is exhausting. But definitely worth it! We had a wonderful time with my mom's family. We had 27 people in one big beach house on the water. What a great time we had! Here are a couple of pictures from the week. I actually found myself not taking a whole lot of pictures. I was too busy chasing around a ten month old. Also, we found out that she doesn't mind the sand. Doesn't care for the ocean water, but loves the pool.
