Princess Ella

On May 25, 2011 our perfect little blessing Ella Beverly Brittenham was born. She's an angel for sure. Although with 30 hours of labor ending in another C-Section I wasn't sure how she was going to be! But...she's perfect! Weighing in at 6lbs 8oz and 19.5 inches long she was my smallest baby.

We were so glad that she was, indeed a girl. With only 1 other girl born within 80 years on my husband's side of the family, we weren't quite sure the ultrasounds would prove correct. But, I am ecstatic! Her room is gorgeous, and it's just the perfect fit for her.

She has begun to sleep train herself already. She began sleeping through the night (with one feeding around 4am) from the beginning. My boys were awake every 2 hours until they were 9 months old. She's not perfect and every once in a while she will wake up 2 times, but hey...that's pretty great if you ask me! She's not a great napper all the time, but I can deal with that. I'm awake anyway and chasing the boys around.

Micah and Josiah are nuts about her! Micah is just crazy about her. We've got to keep a close eye on him though, he's the kid that would squeeze a hamster to death out of sheer love. But overall, they are wonderful to her.

We're blessed and in love with her. And I'm having the time of my life dressing her up! I'm a bit obsessive with bows, but it's a dream come true!
