Ella + summertime = cuteness overload. She is wearing a hot pink polka dot tank from Baby Gap, a hot pink corduroy skirt & matching Jellies. What’s new in Ella’s world: She started swim survival lessons last week and although she isn’t loving them, I am happy to know she will soon be safe around water. Her vocabulary is growing by the day and the ‘words’ that come out of her mouth are far from actual, but one of the cutest things I’ve ever heard. She recognizes colors and will point to the correct one almost every time. She has become a picky eater recently, so we are working on finding nutritious foods that she likes. We have tried just about everything imaginable and most ends up on the floor for the dog. Some of her current favorite foods are Mac & Cheese, cottage cheese, applesauce, oatmeal, goldfish crackers, pineapple, raspberries, waffles and raisin toast.
