Life with Ella {week 20}

How the heck is my sweet girl already 20 weeks old??!! 

And, I also can't believe I've been writing these little weekly updates for 20 weeks in a row...if you're still reading, congrats!!! 

We had a relatively low-key week last week...

On Monday we were super happy playing in the jumperoo...

...but the happiness did not continue when Ella had to go to Kathryn's while Mommy and Daddy went out for their anniversary dinner. Poor Auntie Kaffy!

On Tuesday, Ella seemed to be in a slightly better mood, so we went to Target...

...and out for a walk! 

On Wednesday, Ella came with me to find a bridesmaids dress for Natalie's wedding (we just had to get any black dress, which was super awesome!)

Ella also got this headband at H&M. I'm kind of obsessed with it! Ella, not so much. 

Thursday, we had more fun times in the jumperoo...she really loves that thing!

And we also discovered fruit snacks wrappers. 

Considering I craved these like nobody's business while I was pregnant, I should have known my child would love them too...well, just the wrappers for now!

On Friday, we went to the pool with baby Frankie and my teacher friend, Caitlin!

We also had to dog-sit for Auntie Kaffy's puppies!

Something about Kathryn's house Ella does not like! Do you see her screaming her head off above?!?! Yikes!

After that, we went to Emma Cate and Holden's birthday party at the spray ground! Ella was too little to go in the fountains, so she watched from afar...

...she did love her party favors though!

{Not pictured: bubbles! She loves the bubbles!}

Saturday was National Wear Your Lilly Day, so of course Elle Belle had the perfect dress:

And we went to the Lilly Pulitzer store to find some shorts for me!

We even got put in the pretty princess fitting room!

Unfortunately, I have wayyyy more cellulite than I did last summer, so I decided the shorts were a no-go. I did pick up this swimsuit for Ella and a new phone case for me. Plus we got a free necklace with purchase! And all of sales people LOOOOVED Ella!!! They said she should come model for them and bring in customers! Haha!

After Lilly, Ella had her first Whole Foods experience! 

Well, she's technically been here before, but not to grocery shop! 

We even took the escalators that are for shopping carts... 

You're probably not supposed to take your stroller with your 4 month old in it on this thing....but don't worry, I held on tight! Don't report me to DSS, k?! 

Saturday night, while I was over at my friend Andrea's, Ella rolled from her back to belly for her dad!! He managed to get an "after" shot:

Sunday was REAL fun because our air-conditioner went we had this fan following us all over the house...

Trav's parents were also here, sweating it out with us, so we finally decided to go get some sushi, and watch the soccer game in the nice cool a/c of the restaurant!

When we came home, it was about 80* in our house, so Ella decided she needed a nice, cold beer to cool off. 

{She really didn't have any! Promise!!}

We finished watching the soccer game...

...and Ella loved bouncing with her grandpa!

Last night, we tried to get Ella to roll back to belly again, but she did not really want to. Probably because it was so hot. 

While I've been writing this post, the air-conditioner guy has been working on our unit. He has just informed me that we will need to buy a new air-conditioner, and it probably won't get installed for a few days. Oh yay
So now I'm going to take a cold shower, and then we are off to the mall, library, grocery store and anywhere else I can think of that has air-conditioning!!!!
