Big Girl and The Yamboree

My little 2 week old baby isn't so little anymore. We took her to the doctor today and she was 8 pounds 13 ounces. I can't believe it. She was 7 lbs. 9 oz. a week and a half ago. I guess she likes to eat. Everyone keeps telling me how big she looks- that she doesn't look like a newborn. I guess that means she is just advanced :)
Hudson has been wonderful with her- he has to help her with her paci or bottle every morning before he goes to Ms. Tiffany's or Ms. Amy's house. And when he gets home in the afternoons, he wants to hold her (which only happens with mommy's help.)
On another note- my grandfather is now in a retirement center here in Arlington- such an answer to prayer. We aren't sure how long he will stay, but he is here for now. He has a staph infection and the kids can't go up to see him, but he is closer. Pray for a fast recovery from this infection.
Hudson, Ella, and I are leaving tomorrow with my parents for Gilmer for the Yamboree. I talked to my doctor today and she told me we were cleared to go as long as Ella doesn't get out and we have people wash hands before holding her. I think Hudson will have a blast at the Yamboree- and I can sit at Mamaw's house just as well as at my house. It will also give Paul a chance to rest without any of us here.
We will definitely post some pics from the Yamboree once we get back.

I can't believe how big Ella has grown! Tell her she has to stop growing until her Aunt Tif comes to see her- only two more weeks!!
Have a great time in Gilmer with your family. Tell them hi!
Love you guys
