I really don't have too many pictures from the last few months. They passed like a blur. It was pretty hot July and August, so we didn't get out too much other than a few short walks and going swimming. Here are a few of the pictures I do have:

We spent a morning at the Arboretum with friends.

Ellie loves dressing up and dancing. 

We love to go down to White Rock lake and walk or go rollerblading. 

Ellie is our little reader. I often find her laying in random places reading her books. I love it. 

Ellie has been sick a lot since the beginning of August. Sickness is harder on her body, and we have to watch her very close. One night her fever got pretty high, so we were trying to cool her down with a  cold rag. She wasn't a fan. 

Watching movies while she was sick. 

Lots of cuddling. 

I have been working on some Project Life albums, trying to catch up on pictures!

We celebrated our 3 year Anniversary in August! My visiting teacher is a PICU nurse at the Children's hospital, and watched Ellie for us. We went out to dinner, went miniature golfing, and walked around White Rock Lake after. 

Waiting at the hospital for a doctor appointment. 

I went to Time Out For Women with a few girls from my ward. 

Ellie loves to clean (I hope this lasts forever, but I highly doubt it!) She told me one day that her "popper" was dirty and she needed to wipe it. 

Late night at the grocery store. 

Here is to hoping I can stay caught up on the blog better, so I don't have to do such random posts of pictures!

We rode the trolley around uptown.

 A lot of time spent in Speech Therapy. 

Practicing for her cookies and milk party.

Ellie caught a few viruses and ended up in our bed a couple of nights so we could actually get some sleep. 

Ellies version of helping me with the Laundry..pulling everything out of the basket. 

Best friends..

Birthday Party

We had a small little cookies and milk party for Ellie on her birthday with a few friends. My favorite part by far was when we all sang Happy Birthday. Ellie's face lit up and she could not stop smiling the whole time. I had been talking to her about her upcoming birthday for a few weeks, but she didn't really understand. She kept saying to Ismael and I, "Happy Birthday Momma! and Happy Birthday Dada!

The only picture I got of the table before anything was on it.

We also had a little pony piƱata for the kids. They loved it. 

Ellie was spoiled and got some new dresses, shoes, a doll stroller, and some other toys. 

 Trying out the new baby doll stroller. 

Such a fun birthday! We love our 2 year old!
