Dear Ella . . .

We traveled back to Alabama for your first Thanksgiving this week and had so much fun seeing Grandmommy, Granddaddy, Aunt Anna, and Uncle Jonathan (Aunt Olivia had to work so we missed seeing her).

You ended up getting your first ear infection while we were there (brought on by the nasty cold you had all last week) so you were extra clingy to Mommy most of the time. We also discovered that, like your Mommy, you are allergic to penicillin. You broke out in a rash all over your tummy and legs. We won't do that again.

You are becoming more and more aware of your surroundings every day now. You're constantly looking around and reaching for things - you love Mommy's glasses and Daddy's hair. You are also talking all the time! I think we left for Alabama with a baby and came back with a chattering magpie! I just love hearing your little babbles! :)

Dear Ella . . .

Tooth number 3 has officially poked through! It's your top left tooth (between your front tooth and your incisor). I felt it for the first time last night (though I'm sure you've been feeling it quite a bit longer). 6 months, 9 days
