How I love life with Ella

Ella is growing up day by day.  Right now her sleeping really sucks.  Even thought we get her in bed by 8:30 the latest, she doesn’t fall asleep until around 10:00.  It’s not the biggest problem in the world, but we think that its important that she gets at least one more hour of sleep at night.  Waking her up in the morning can be tough.  I depend on her stuffed animals to wake her up in the morning.  Some of them are pretty funny and make her laugh – especially Tweety who is a wise ass.  Anyway, we’ll see if this is something that lasts or just another developmental stage.  Ella had an amazing swimming lesson today and I have a video to share with all of you.  It looks like she is beginning to do breast stroke, she can float on her back alone, she can flip from front to back, she’s working on her freestyle and side breathing and today she learned how to dive down and retrieve an object.  Really cool stuff.  Enjoy the movie.

    Fantastic video! Ella is such a hard worker and she sees results. Her teacher seems great. As for the sleeping, maybe Ella needs to take some lessons from Uncle Michael and Papa. Love you. Mom
