Dear Lord, Ella is 4!!!

Yes, it has been forever since I posted anything...sue me! So, I thought this would be the perfect time to update our family blog to update you on Ella and the fact that she is turning 4 today!! I cannot believe how fast time has flown by and all the different places Ella has lived and all the different things she has experienced in four years. Ella is blessed with lots and lots of friends from FL, Boston and MI all while making lots of new friends this past year with it being her first year of preschool. She attends Sunshine Studio in Ann Arbor and LOVES her teachers and friends and does Spanish every Mon., art on Wednesdays and Kindermusik on Fridays. Even though we are on summer break right now she will be attending summer camp the last week in July that she and I are already looking forward to!! :)

Ella is also participating in gymnastics and taking swimming lessons this summer (I finally don't have to be in the water with her)! Hopefully in the Fall she will play soccer, too. She is still in love with her dogs, well....any dog, really and loves the movie Bolt right now. She loves playing 'superhero' and got a cape for her birthday that our friend Alexis sowed by hand.

I am very curious to see how much Ella has changed in the past year. Her 4-year check up in on the 15th (she has to get 4 shots) and I'm betting that she's at least 38 inches and weighs about 40 lb. But, I'll update you next week on that.

I will try my best to post pictures ASAP of our big girl.

...okay, here's the update after the pediatrician visit:

Ella is 39" tall - taller than expected, yet she only weighs 33 lb ...w-a-y less than expected. I guess I really need to start working out again because she definitely feels heavier than 33 lb! Anyway, she was a trooper and got four shots and we're all glad that she's doesn't need anymore until she is 11 (except for flu shots, of course)!
