Update :)

Here is a little update on what is going on in our lives. Just quick little bullet points and a few more Ella-isms:

1. Kathryn, my youngest sister, just got married on Friday and had a super fun reception at Spanish Hills Country Club.

2. I have five weeks left of this pregnancy, but I may get induced a week early (just because) so I only have FOUR weeks left! AH! So close!

3. Ella is slowly becoming potty trained. We have been using positive reinforcement, bribery, and brain washing by surrounding her with potty training books. It is sort of working...

This is Ella with her pretty American Flag she made in nursery. She LOVES nursery, especially her two friends "Cody" and "Mia", which are really Cordy and Mina. She says she likes to push Cordy, though....which concerns me a little bit...maybe its like when boys throw dirt at little girls when they have a crush on them?

This is all the girls from work, and Mom, at the Dodgers Game for my birthday. We got to walk on the field after the game and meet one of the players, Danny Worth, who happens to be Breanne's fiance (the blonde). It was SUPER fun! I had a really great birthday weekend, complete with going out to dinner on Saturday, the Dodger game on Friday, and a yummy birthday dinner and cake on Sunday! It was great :) I'm the big 2-5 now...crazy...

Here are a few new Ella-isms for your entertainment:

Somewhere along the lines, Ella has picked up and understands what boobs are. Well, she saw grandma in her swimsuit this weekend and said: (Oh, and she pronounces grandma like Monga...its like grandma backwards sort of?)

Ella: "Monga boobs! Monga BIG boobs!"

After Tom had been gone for a week in Utah, Ella woke up in the morning and saw him there, she said:
Ella: "Daddy! I pooped in the crib!"
Dad: Why did you do that?
Ella: It's yucky!
Dad: Yeah, it is yucky. Do you poop in the potty now?
Ella: *Laugh* Noooo....
Dad: Why not?
Ella: *Laugh* Silly daddy...

Ella is too cute! And so are you with the preggo belly! It is interesting because Josh's grandma is known as "Munga". Josh started calling her that as a toddler and then Josh's nephew started calling his mom Munga now! Maybe that is just how little kid brains interpret "Grandma"??

FIVE (4) weeks left- seriously!?!? I hope your pregnancy went by as fast for you as it did for me! Haha! It seems like you just told me you were preggers! I'm so excited for T-Rex to come, you will LOVE having a boy! I think Chandler and I need to come down ASAP so they can become best buds and Chan and Ella can start their lifelong courtship Ü Ella is so so cute, she is such a good mix of you and Tom! I would love to hear more about the "brain washing" potty training that is working for her, I want to start as soon as Chandler turns two and would love all the advice I can get! Glad things are going well, I love ya miss you guys! Ü

Oh my goodness! I can't believe how far along you are. Other people's pregnancies go so quickly. Happy late birthday! I'm glad you had fun. And hurray on kinda potty training, Ella. All your hard work will pay off in the end. I promise.
