Our first video blog

The last three weeks have been filled with so much.  Mostly a lot of fun, a little bit of exhaustion and a smidge of relaxation!  Here’s more:

There were a few other fun things we forgot to mention in the video, including a sleepover with Brad Myers, who had awesome pictures to share of his hike on Mt. Baker, and a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend, including amongst other things a fun day trip to Bainbridge and Poulsbo with Craig and Carly and John and Mols.

And for those of you not on Facebook, a couple of fun videos of Ellie: big giggles and rolling on her side:

Fun Times

So much new stuff has happened and we haven’t really had a chance to sit down and share it with everyone yet.  Ellie had her two month birthday and her two month checkup.  She was in the 50th percentile for head measurement and weight and in the 90th percentile for weight!  She had to get her vaccine’s, which she was not especially happy about, but overall I think she was a major trooper.

We also took our first family sleepover outing last weekend to Sol Duc Hot Springs with Tutu (Grandma Kim) and Grandy.  Ellie again was a total trooper and Brian and I were able to get away for a nice hour and a half massage, which was heavenly.  It was so great to get into nature where there were no TV’s and our cell phones didn’t work.  It was refreshing, reviving and awakening.  We definitely are looking forward to getting back there soon.  Below are some fun photos.  Here is a funny video we took while in Poulsbo grabbing some lunch.  Grandy gave Ellie a foot massage, which you can tell she thoroughly enjoyed:

Ellie and I have been going to Gymboree now with Molly and Archie and she has such a great time.  While most of the kids are enamored with the puppets, bubbles and parachute, Ellie tends to enjoy staring at all the people and babies and likes to chat up a storm with them.  It’s a lot of fun and I think it’s great for her interpersonal skill development.  Ellie has never really enjoyed her swing, but we keep trying every now and then and today she seemed to really enjoy it.  Here is a video (be careful not to get hypnotized):
