Ella- 16 months old

*When she is crawling a long distance, she always has her mouth open.
*She is crawling around and getting into everything she's not supposed to. Her favorite route is:
1. Pull the dvd's out of the entertainment center, then crawl to
2. Pull the chords out from underneath the computer, then crawl to
3. The hallway where she pulls the night light out of the socket, then crawl to
4. The kitchen to pull out all of the paper bags stored by the refrigerator.
And if she can tear up some papers, knock over some pictures, grab a cell phone or remote on the way then she is lovin' life.
*She loves shutting doors. If we go out to the garage and leave the door open, you better believe she will shut the door behind you. This isn't a good combination with her older brothers recent fear of the garage. He MUST have the door open to the house, or he screams and cries because it is scary out there. He thinks Ella is being mean and doing it on purpose.
*She loves to wave “hi” and “bye” to everyone. Often times, she will do it with both hands.
*She totally cracks herself up. On a typical car ride, we will hear Ella doing this: “Ba ba ba ba ra ra ra da da- haha haha haha” , “ma ma ma ba ba ba ma da ra ra- haha haha haha” .
*She has her daddy’s sense of humor. They are like two peas in a pod. He will look at her, make babbling noises and laugh. She does the same thing right back. This can go on for several minutes.
*She has seven teeth- four on the top and three on the bottom. There is one more that will probably pop through any day now.
*She is moving around in her crib and pulling herself up to her knees. This is making nap time and bed time a little more of a challenge, because now she knows she can play in her crib. She is still sleeping good most of the time though.
*If she falls asleep in her car seat, she must be left there. She does not go back to sleep if I get her out of the car and put her in the crib. I have a feeling she is going to have a lot of naps in the garage.
*She is turning into "that kid". Yep, she is the baby that I have to tell the older children to watch out for. She sits so still, waiting for her prey, and when they bend down to admire the sweet baby, she clobbers their face. Two-handed. Full force. With a huge grin on her face. I am constantly clipping her nails, because I don't want her to draw blood. I have always had a low tolerance for "that kid" and now I live with her. Let the good times roll!
*She got her first spanking. Refer to the previous comment :)

Gorgeous baby. Gorgeous view.

Shopping with Logan.

She has the best smile.

Wearing Bro Bro's clothes.

Cutest. Baby. Ever. No, you can't have her.

We did a little shopping for Halloween- Bat antlers.

I get a lot of comments that she looks like Pebbles, because of the way I fix her hair. So I had her wear her Pebbles t-shirt with her Pebble ponytail. She looked adorable, of course.

First time I found her sitting up in her crib in the morning.

She LOVES animals.

I am dying laughing right now. I LOVED hearing her babbles and giggles in the car yesterday. I am honored to say she has never clobbered my face, yet. I'm sure its coming. She must just love me too much to be mean. ;) I love your picture quote, "Cutest Baby Ever. No, you can't have her." I really want her though, could we maybe trade sometime?
