You've Come A Long Way, Baby

It has been so long since I've updated. Here are the major events since the last post.

Isn't this the saddest picture you've ever seen? Our sweet baby girl got so sick a couple of weeks ago. She had high fevers, then this rash. It was horribly itchy, which kept her up all night, which kept us up all night. It got worse over the next few days, and we eventually took her to the pediatric dermatologist because we were worried about a serious infection. Turned out to be just some dang virus. When Mommy is a pediatrician, every little virus "might" be something really serious. I'm trying to stop thinking medical thoughts about my own child. It was a miserable few days, but she's all better now. Thank goodness.

Now on to happier times...

We've started a potentially bad habit. In the mornings, we bring Ella into bed with us. It actually makes things easier because we can get ready for work and keep an eye on her. A few days ago, I caught Ella and Daddy snoozing. Right before I took this picture, she had her fist up against his cheek. It looked like she was punching him. It was so funny.

Later that day. My happy girl playing on the floor.

On our way out in the morning, I just had to snap this picture. It's just a little fleece jacket, but she looked so cute.

Tonight, playing with Daddy. She is such a big girl now. She loves sitting up. She occassionally tips over, but that doesn't bother her a bit. She just thinks she's way too big.

Playing tonight. I hate that this picture is so blurry, but she just looks so darn cute. Seriously, couldn't she be a model? She's way cuter than the Gerber baby.

Other updates:
Ella now has two teeth. Her two middle bottom teeth have broken through, and man are they sharp!
As of 3 weeks ago, she is 15 lbs, 3 oz - 70th percentile for weight. She's also 80th percentile for height, which, obviously, she gets from her Mommy.
Rice cereal is the greatest thing since breast milk. I'll have to try to get the video uploaded. It's funny.
Green beans, however, was not a happy experience.

I think that's about it for now. Stay tuned for more cute pictures after our trip to the pumpkin patch next week with Aunt Sarah and cousins Lizzie and Noah.
