1 Week Old!

Ella Grace's one week birthday was another pretty laid back day. She was scheduled to have her newborn portraits that afternoon so we just took it easy around the house. Daddy bathed her for the first time today and he did a great job! He just continues to suprise me with how awesome he is with his little girl : )

Relaxing in my swing and getting my beauty sleep in before my photo session...

Then, Daddy bathed me for the first time...

I did pretty well during my photo shoot, however I wanted to stay awake most of the time. And I peed on a couple of blankets and pooped in Mommy's fruit bowl, ha! I bet the pictures will still be adorable though : )

Some snapshots during the photo session...

After my modeling session I was pretty tired so I napped in my big girl crib for the first time...

On Ella Grace's 6th day, it was beautiful outside! And we really needed groceries so we went on her first little "outing" I guess you could call it. We first had lunch at Chick-fil-A, then we went to Hobby Lobby. She was scheduled to have her newborn pictures the next day so we were searching for some picture props. Lastly, we went to Wal-Mart. She was a perfect angel the whole time!!! We never heard a peep from her : )

All dressed and ready to go out...

After we got back home, we all hung out in my room where I experienced my first "tummy time"

I am really, really strong!!! I can already lift my head and turn it from side to side! I'm also really good at scooting around like I'm trying to crawl!!!

And by the end of this big day, I was pretty tired! Can you tell?

Ella Grace: 5 days old

We came off the bili bed today!!!!!! She still had to spend most of the day on her bili bed until we heard from the nurse that afternoon, but the moment we got the word we rushed to take her off!!! And just hold and cuddle her : ) That evening Mommy and Daddy took her on her FIRST WALK : ) She did great! I think she really loves her carseat!

Daddy thinks everybody needs cool shades : )

That night I finally inked up her little feet and put her footprints in her baby book...

Then it was time for her second bath! She liked it a little bit better than the first time : )

 Daddy enjoys getting me ready for bed after Mommy bathes me...and he's really good at it too!

He always turns on my iPod and sings to me while he dresses me : ) SO sweet!

Then we all lounged in bed...

Until I was sound asleep...

It was a GREAT day!

Ella Grace: 4 days old

First, I want to put some of you at ease, because no I am not going to post an update for every day of EG's life : ) Just the first week...Actually, she is 2 weeks old today so as soon as I get caught up on my posts, I will go to weekly updates.

This post of her at 4 days old is pretty short and sweet. This was the second day she spent on the bili bed so we couldn't hold her much, take her out, or have a photo shoot or anything : ( However, we did cheat a little and took her off the lights for about an hour so she could visit her Nana and Papaw who dropped by to see her!

More pictures of her on the bili bed (just because she is TOO. DARN. CUTE!)

Still happy...even on her bili bed : )

Nana & Papaw visit...

Toby wanted some attention too, ha!
