My Beautiful Ella Nichole

There are no words to describe these pictures. My beautiful friend, Kacey, took these shots of Ella when she was four days old. Wow...simply wow.

On Our Own

A collection of her hosptial memorabilia.

Ella and Papa G!

Ella and Mimi!

Long toes!!!

She already has gymnast fingers. :) Mommy is so proud.

Sorry, I had to post these two pics so I could put them on my phone...long story.

Ella and her bunny that Nonnie gave her!

I LOVE this one!

Beautiful Baby!
Well, Jeremy's mom and step dad flew back to Texas today. :( The Harper family is on their own. So far I've cried, Ella's cried (but for different reasons), we've had a diaper explosion followed by her best throw up session yet. Projectile. :) I'm excited about our journey. I love my baby to pieces.

Just For Fun...

Ella's first bath...I like to think that she was thinking, "Mommy!!! Save Me!!!"

This is Stitch...our mighty protector! He already loves Ella...he lets her put her feet on him! A step in the right direction!!!

Proud parents at the hospital!

I don't know why, but I LOVE this picture of her! Once again I imagine that she's reaching out for me! ;)

Auntie Kacey and Ella are both sporting their hot pink flowers...this was not planned. Kacey and I always have this weird fashion thing where we're both thinking the same thing on the same day! Love it!

Heel Prick Day

This pic is from yesterday, February 5th. We went to go look at a building for the church.

Home from the prick...in Mommy's arms...much happier!

Look at that beautiful face!

"Where's my Binkie???"

Ahhhhhh! Much better!

Today Jeremy and I took Ella to the hospital to do the dreaded heel prick. It was horrible. We both almost cried and Jeremy told me that can't do that again. I don't blame him!

Ella Nichole

Sleeping Beauty

1st Doctor Visit!

Her Daddy is so proud!

The Harper Family

Nonnie and Paw Paw love her soooooo much!

Jeremy bought Ella and I tulips tonight. We are so lucky to have the best husband/daddy in whole wide world. :)

Peek -a -boo at the hospital

Look at those beautiful lips

First picture at the hospital

So beautiful

Every time her bow would fall, she would let out this big noise...never cried, but definitely let me knew she was not happy!

These are my booties from when I was a baby.

My baby is 1 week old today! Ella Nichole was born on January 28th at 12:54am. She was 7lbs 9oz and 20 inches long. She is the most beautiful thing I have ever laid eyes on...I am so in love.
