Jason and I went to his company Christmas party tonight. It was really neat. It was a formal masquerade party at Red Rock Canyon Grill. Super nice! I had a great time but tuckered out early. So, Ella and I are just chillin' tonight. Jason stayed at the party and the boys are at Nana and GPa's.

After being on the phone for many hours the past week, I got her Synagis (RSV) shot scheduled for tonight. So, sometimes you have to be very proactive, but it is totally worth it!!!
Oh, one other thing I keep forgetting to post. Ella is getting red hair. In bright light, it is totally red. It's not like mine, but there is definitely some red in there. I'm really excited!!! Maybe one of my kids will finally look like me :)

You can tell in the picture above that Ella has a little birthmark on her forehead. It's called a Stork's bite or Angel Kiss. I prefer Angel Kiss. I think that is exactly what it is!!! Anyway, it will slowly fade away in the next year. Her little nostrils are still so red from the NG tube. I guess it's about time I put something on them. :)

Carson and Cooper thought Ella needed to hold their "puppies". It was really cute!
I love this girl!!
After leaving the doctor's office, I just cried and cried. This was the last big hurdle it seems we had to jump. She passed with flying colors. It is such a relief! I am filled with so many emotions! I am so thankful, grateful, hopeful!! We totally know that Ella is God's miracle! He has blessed us beyond measure.
Ella also visited her pediatrician today. She weighs 6lb 4oz and is 20 inches long. Ella's pediatrician was quite impressed with everything she is doing! It's hard to believe that it is STILL not my due date. After everything we have gone through, I can now admit that I'm not a big fan of being pregnant. So, today I can smile and say, thank you God that I'm not pregnant and I have a healthy little girl! We have had a journey, but we have grown so much during this journey. Thank you God for increasing our faith!

Here's for a couple of clarifications. This is really Traci's blog. Jason just likes to steal it and put it on his facebook page :) Jason doesn't like the bows, its me!!! And, I love, love, love the big bows and flowers (obviously, huh?). The bigger the better!!!! Now, when I bought some of these bows/flowers, I thought my child would be a tad bit bigger based on the size of her brothers. So, I didn't think the bow/flower would be bigger than her head :) Oh, well! When Carson was a baby, many friends from church had their little girls in these big bows. I personally thought they looked really goofy. Boy was I wrong!
Please keep our appt. on Tuesday in your prayers. We go to the doctor at 3pm that day.

Somehow, I have managed to get all 3 kids to nap at the same time. Carson and Cooper still haven't realized that there has been a time change, so after getting up at 6:30am, they are ready for a nap. I'm not sure which is worse, getting up at 6:30am or no nap! Ella is the best baby. She sleeps all the time, and only whimpers when she is hungry or wants to be held. She is getting a little spoiled and likes to be rocked to sleep. This surprises me a bit because she comforted herself back to sleep in the NICU for 31 days. I will spoil her all she wants, though! I think I was rocked by my Daddy to sleep until I was 10 or so :) I said Ella was going to be a Daddy's girl, but he's going to have to share! I'm smitten! She is just precious!

The picture above is of the prayer quilt my Aunt Sandy surprised me with. Actually it is for Ella. She made the quilt and then had people tie the knots who prayed/continuing to pray for Ella. This quilt will be forever cherished! Thank you Aunt Sandy.
