Ella loves to play peek-a-boo and has been pretty inventive with her different ways of doing it. This is the blanket version, but she also uses her shirt, and she's been peeking around corners like mom and dad do sometimes.

We had Sara and Gavin for Easter dinner. Sara brought some colored eggs and Ella thought they were pretty interesting.

Once she started eating the shell we decided to get rid of it. It was pretty slippery and slipped out of her hands right onto the plate of Deviled Eggs. :) LOL After a good laugh she sat in her high chair and dissected it for a while. Good Easter fun for the little one. :)

Well the news is pretty much out. Ella's going to be a big sister this Fall. The funny thing about it is that we got quite a big surprise at the doctor's office ( On April 1st.) I went in thinking I was 10 weeks along. The week before I kept looking in the mirror thinking "why am I showing already?? I guess the third time around doesn't take long to stretch back out."
I was doing the little hold the belly in while I was in public and everything. :)

So we are in the doctor's office telling her I think I'm 10 weeks and Bleu thought about 12. So Doc says " well, let's take a look". The first thing I see on the ultrasound screen is an ARM. with FINGERS. and then she goes to the side and I see a PROFILE.

Doc says "I think you're further than you thought" Ya. apparently. So she did a few measurements that all indicated a gestational age of more like 18 1/2 weeks. OH MY. I made it almost half way through my pregnancy without even realizing it. LOL! That's the way to do it!
