Wordless Wednesday…The Ella Edition






Sorry I’ve been out of touch, but as you can see, I have a good reason. Who would want to put down a sweet smelling baby girl to write a silly old blog? Not me!

I have also been suffering horrible allergies. Whatever was blooming in Texas a couple of weeks ago, is just now blooming here. And I must be allergic to the East coast version of whatever it is, because I have been miserable since we got here. My face aches, my throat scratches and makes me cough which causes the rest of my head to ache. It’s a never ending cycle.

Ella has definitely been the bright spot in all of this! Her folks, my brother and sister-in-law have been so fun to visit with, as well. It’s not all about the baby. Okay, it is, but at least they’re good sports about it! It has been so fun watching the new parents as they experience the wonder that is their baby. They are enthralled with her, as is her Grannie Wow. It brings back a lot of memories and reminds me how many years its been since I’ve held a baby. It all comes back, just like riding a bike.

Knowing I would be enamored with baby Ella, I prepared a couple of posts before I left. Since I can’t be bothered to let go of her, I’ll post the recipe tomorrow. It’s a cheese appetizer. Here’s a peek:



  1. Ella is just beautiful!!! I love that smile it could really melt my heart! Enjoy the great company and if you can just stuff her in your bag for the trip hime ;)

    That looks wonderful, the cheese stuff.

  2. Those babies...hope you get to feel'in better.

  3. Now that my little "surprise" baby is seven years old, I'm just getting to the point where it would be sweet to hold a little baby again. Not that I want one, I'd just like to hold someone else's for a minute. Ella is precious. That smile!

  4. What a darling little baby! Whenever I see a punkin like that I get that twinge that I really want to experience that all over again. Then I realize I would be 65 when he/she would graduate from high school and every thing goes right back into perspective!

  5. What a gorgeous happy little baby. She will be well loved, I can tell. :)

  6. Sweet baby! Lucky you for being able to go snuggle with her. And the cheese appetizer? I'm intrigued.

  7. So ridiculously adorable. There should be a law against babies being so cute!!


I would love to hear what you have to say!
