I decided to coordinate with Ella. Well really I started with the skirt and had no idea what to wear with it and Ella had her outfit on so I wore pink. I love that we coordinate. I wish I could do this more. Since it was Mother's Day and I got a new camera lens Dave was willing to take some pictures. But Ella was really tired so they weren't even that good. After her nap, I used the tripod and took more pictures outside. Ella is really good at looking at the camera when there aren't a million other distractions. (There are car distractions when we take pictures in the front yard but the backyard is basically distraction free.) She needs to work on smiling for a camera on a tripod though. There were so many pictures, that I kept putting off this post. Now that it's months later, I can't remember what all we did. I'm pretty sure we didn't do anything fancy.
When Ella is tired she tries to eat me.
(For reference I weighed 145.1 at 8:26 AM on May 11 and I was 136.5 lb before I got pregnant and my old normal was 125-128 lb)
Here are a few other pictures from the day too. You can also view the entire album.
