10.21.15 Gymnastics Video

 Ella sure loves gymnastics class. (Link to video, too)

10.18.15 Videos

We went over to visit the Bradleys. Of course I had to take some videos!  Sometimes the embedded video doesn't work so here's a link just in case. I already blogged about the entire day.

DIY Newborn Photos (9.21.16)

I decided to try to use my tripod and try to take some pictures with Miles. He was 11 days old here.  It was a little challenging to get into the view perfectly and getting the focus right using manual.  Then I took some of Miles lying down. He was asleep and in those he was wearing Ella's swaddle sack + blanket. Then I changed his diaper and he woke up. He was awake in the rest of the photos.
I had a little fun doing some photo editing. I had to straighten the pictures since all the ones on the tripod were off by about 10 degrees and it was too noticeable to me with the bricks in the background.
I really want to take pictures with my good camera once a week but wonder if that will happen.

 It was hard to get a feet picture with an awake baby who kept kicking his feet!

I was surprised by his head control so then I end up looking at him instead of straight ahead. My face wasn't supposed to be in the picture but it ended up being the best one with his nice head control!

Do you have a favorite? I probably take too many photos!

10.17.15 Videos

We took Ella to the park and I took some videos.

Later in the day she hung out with her cousins. (Ella's first cousins once removed)

10.16.15 Pumpkin Patch Video

We went to the Pumpkin Patch. Ella had a good time, had a temper tantrum, and then had a good time. It was really cold! Just in case the embedded video doesn't work, here's the link.

10.15.15: Round Hill Farm

We went to Round Hill Farm early in the day. Ella loved it. Uncle Timmy was a good photographer at the farm.

Ella really enjoyed the sheep. She even said "hi" and "bye." She said "bah" a few times and waved. I'm glad we walked up at the end to see if they were there.

We went to Mad Mex for dinner.

After Mad Mex we walked to the pet store. This was Ella's first time in a pet store (at least that I can remember).

Then we drove to Shop 'n Save and Ella did some shopping.
