Ellah loves her crib so much!! We put a few jungle stuffed animals in with her and she thinks she is the coolest baby on the Island. She wanted to tell Papa and Grandma thanks for her crib and of course Grandma for making her whole crib set and wall hangings!! Thanks bunches from the Three of Us!!

Giving me the thumbs up to let me know she likes it too!! Ellah finally fits her helmet and she looks sooo stinkin' cute!! We found the helmet when we bought the bikes and it was just too big but we knew she would need it soon. Well that day came Saturday when we were headed to the beach with our Ward to clean it up. It is the coolest helmet ever, it comes with 3 different covers- frog, bumble bee and a fish. They just velcro right on. Did I mention we pierced her ears when we first got here? Yet, people still call her a boy. I think that is because she only wears a diaper. I am asked very often if she is Polynesian because she is VERY tan and also due to her size!! A comment just made me laugh the other day. We were out walking and some people walked past and after doing so, I heard "Did you see that fat boy?" What can ya do but laugh it off? She is our little (big) princess and we love every fat roll on her body!!

Well we are finally off to a long road...school officially started yesterday and Jeremiah was so excited. We made sure his lunch was packed, he got the no talking to strangers talk and to look both ways before crossing the street (as he rides his bike to school). My mom even called and made sure he was all ready for his first day, hahaha. Ellah got her first tooth, well half-way in at least. She did really good, no fussing or anything. We have seriously been blessed with a wonderful and easy going child. She is just about days away from crawling, she wants to so bad but just isn't there yet. So because of it being Jeremiah's big day yesterday...this picture is for him!! I love my plumbers oh sooo much!! Hmmm, maybe we should find a nude beach to help out with the tan lines!!

Sorry we have not updated lately...our internet connection went crazy. But we are doing great. We are finally getting our own little groove. The people here are fabulous. The whole atmosphere is just great, so relax, way different than back home. Ellah is a little person now, one night I tucked her into bed and then she woke up a little person....it is crazy!! We got her a walker and she loves it. She thinks she is the coolest kid on the Island, hahaha. We do a lot of walks, bike rides, snorkeling and hiking trips. Jeremiah starts school here in a few weeks, he is looking forward to that. I cut my hair off, not because of the heat or because I am a mom now, just a little change, nothing too bad but it is fun. Hope everyone is doing well.
