Life with Ellie

Todd and I have been adjusting to the arrival of our baby girl Ellie. We are getting the hang of diaper changes, feedings, naps and the enjoyment of Ellie's company. I think the hardest thing we have had to deal with is getting other things done around the house. The days seem to go by super fast.

The dogs are doing good with Ellie around. Reese took some warming up to her because he was scared but now he will come over sniff and watch Ellie. Wicket adores Ellie and will run through the house looking for her. Seida & Chloe seem content to go on with life as usual. Ellie sleeps through their barking and the dogs sleep through Ellie's crying.

Thank you friends and family for all the prayers! We are truly blessed!

Love -Heidi

Baby's Corner

For those that have never been out to our house we live in a one bedroom 1,000 sq ft cozy place. I don't have a nursery for our little girl but I did clear out a corner in our bedroom. This should work nicely for a while.

Baby's corner
Eventually we will put a crib in the corner. For now we have baby girl's little bed next to ours waiting for her arrival. Maybe we can get through a few of the diapers stacked behind the recliner before we put a crib in. Todd hung the little pictures I found yesterday (love them). I would like to do a little more decorating when we figure out a name for baby girl. We are so excited!

Baby shower #2

Thank you to our church family for showering our baby girl today with beautiful gifts. There was wonderful food and games and lots of visiting.
Lots of little outfits for our girl.




The cake was awesome! The kids were obsessed with finding out what was in the belly of the cake. No baby in there, just more cake.

Rodeo girl

This weekend Olivia and her horse Wildfire competed in their very first Rodeo. They did a great job and I look forward to watching them grow as a team.

Oh honey

Todd spent hours this weekend working on robbing honey from his beehive. The honey is a beautiful light color this year and taste wonderful!
