Food is one of those magical things in life…and one of my utmost passions. Ella seems to share my joy, she can’t get enough! It’s fun to venture around the farmer’s market and see what fresh produce can become her first flavors….butternut squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, free range chicken…
And we’ve discovered that some veggies make great teethers! Definitely not as great as her new favorite RiNGLEY Sun teether, but nevertheless something different to explore.
Her list of “firsts” continues to expand. What will be next?
I had two dreams growing up, my first dream was that I could dance with my grandfather at my wedding. My grandfather past before I got married, however he came to me in a dream one night and when I asked why he was there, he said “To give you your dance!” The dream was so real, I’ve counted it as so. My second dream has been for my grandparents to meet my children, to link the generations of our family. My Grandma still lives in the same house where my father was raised, and to take Ella over tovisit Grandma adds one more layer of memories to that house . Seeing the smile on Grandma’s face as she holds her great grandchildren is a gift that is truly priceless!

Wow, she’s now five weeks old today! I can’t even begin to explain the amount of love we have for her…and how excited we are to begin this journey into parenthood. I also have a whole new appreciation for the female body! From pregnancy to nursing, my body continues to surprise me with the ancient wisdom it holds.
