Just a few pictures

This past weekend we went down to Houston because we had Keith's work Christmas party. Of course I didn't get any pictures of me and Keith, but I have a few other pictures to share.
Don't you just love baby feet! I may be partial, but I think these are the cutest ever!
We have been trying to do lots of tummy time lately and thanks to mom's rocking polar bear, we lasted a lot longer than normal. I even got a few smiles out of her!
While we were in Houston we went to meet the newest Dicke great grandson - Rowan Jeffrey Dicke. Rowan was born on November 30th weighing in at 7 lbs 10 oz and measuring 19 inches - so close to Ella - though I think she will always have him in the height category!
Here are the three Dicke great grand kids - Easton, Ella, and Rowan
Rowan got a little tired and I got this picture real quick of Easton and Ella - Easton looks so much like Brad in this picture!!!

We had a great time at the Christmas party and we were so glad it was in Houston so that my parents could watch Ella and not have to worry about finding a baby sitter. Thanks Granny and Poppi!

3 Months Old!

Ella today you are three months old! So what have you been up to lately - besides thinking you are the funniest person in the world!

I am not sure what your length and weight are, but I am going to guess about 24 1/2 inches and weighing in at around 13-14 lbs.
You are wearing a size 2 diaper.
You wear both 3 and 6 month clothing - mainly if it is a one peice it needs to be a 6 month - separates canbe 3 months.
You are such a great sleeper! We put you down at 8 and you do not wake up until sometime between 5 and 7 in the morning. It is wonderful! You also happily go into your bed at night and don't even cry! It is so great that you are happy to go into your crib and it is not a fight!
You take 5 or 6 bottles with 6 oz each a day.
You smile and laugh constantly! You always have a smile for me and your daddy and we just LOVE it!
You love laying on the floor and trying to grab things that hang above you. You try so hard to roll over, but you just can't figure it out.
You still love to sit on our laps and watch the TV - especially football (you are your father's child alright) - we have started putting on some Baby Einstein videos and you will sit and watch the whole thing.
Ella- you are getting to be such a big girl and we can't wait to see what you will be up to in the next month!
