She seems to be a really strong little thing. It literally hurts when she is rolling and flipping in there. My whole belly moves and does the wave. And she is rarely still. If I am moving around, I don't feel her, but as soon as I sit still, she starts hopping. I don't remember Ellie being that active, but I also didn't remember how small newborn diapers are until I opened the pack we got at the shower. Seriously, I really can't remember E being that small. She's such a big girl now. *sniff*
And still no definite name decision. Still mulling it over.

On Monday, my local friends showered us with gifts and well wishes for the Peanut. I am embarrassed that it's taken me this long to write about it. Except everything seems to take a little longer these days. Part of the deal I guess. Barbara hosted the shower at her house WAY out in the country :) and it was really fun.
We played games.... one where you had to sniff the contents of diapers and guess what kind of candy bar it was.....some people couldn't get past the appearance.
And another one where you had to guess what flavor baby food was in jars just from looking at the outside with no label.
Matching dresses for Ellie and the Peanut from GranJan.

When I picked her up she said she had a great day and is excited to go back on Thursday. I am excited to sleep a little later tomorrow :)

Both Ellie and I made it through her first day of pre-school unharmed. She cried a little when I dropped her off this morning, but she must have enjoyed the day because she already agreed to go back tomorrow. (Not that she has a choice, but she didn't pitch a fit when we talked about it)

Look at the artistic ability that just started today. All of a sudden her drawings are no longer floating heads. I typed the captions directly on the pics so they are kind of small.
Be sure to pay attention to the family portrait one. I am a giant.
And she'd never really attempted an animal before. I was impressed.

She's a decent patient. Take a look at the "band-aid" on her leg. She actually sat pretty still while E took care of her. Why she's a naked doctor, I don't know.
Swam with Abby and Miss Barbara. Thanks again guys!
Pretended to be the Naked Chef. We made muffins.
First ballet class here. She's been to lots in SC. She seemed to really enjoy it.
Other than these things we've also been to aerobics class on Monday and Tuesday and tonight was the Open House at Mom's Day Out. We met E's teachers and saw the classroom. Both ladies and all the kids seem really nice. I think she is going to have a great time there. Tomorrow I head to the doctor again and E will play with Max and Nolen. After that we are off to our weekly commissary trip to get regular groceries and special snacks because we are hosting playgroup here on Friday. I guess I should go get some cleaning done while she's asleep.....or maybe I'll go watch "So You Think You Can Dance". It's the finale.... Definitely more important than cleaning.
Super Ellie to the rescue! (with mysterious drugged out look)
Fancy lady- complete with plastic heels and almost as large plastic earrings.
Very tired girl in sleep shirt from Lori!

5 Minutes For Mom is having another great giveaway week. There's a different giveaway each day in honor of everyone getting ready to go back to school. Even though I am not, I can still feel it in the air. In fact, I even bought some crayons, glue and notebooks at WalMart because they were just SO CHEAP. 22 cents for crayons or glue and 5 cents for a notebook! I couldn't say no. And Ellie is starting school so I at least got to pick out a 1st day back outfit. I know, I am such a nerd.
Anyway, I am entering today's giveaway for sure and maybe even another one during the week. I have always wanted a label maker, but never felt like I could justify buying one. Winning a super cool DYMO one would solve that little problem.
Click on the button at the top to see the daily giveaways. Good luck!
PS. She starts PreSchool next week and I am a nervous wreck.
