Some of Our Favorites!

1. The Miracle Blanket
Although we are still not sleeping through the night, this has helped tremendously. It works much better than all other swaddle blankets I have tried. It doesn't come undone, and she passes out as soon as I wrap her up.

2.Boppy Newborn Lounger
We don't use this anymore, but Ella Katherine slept on one of these for the first ten weeks and it was fabulous!

These adorable shoes never fall off and are so comfortable for them (at least I think they are).

4. Itz Been
One of the greatest things for a new mom. These are especially great if you are breastfeeding. I never could remeber what time I fed or changed Ella Katherine. Trust me, if you don't have a kid you will one day understand this. It also helps you remember which side you last fed off of. GREAT gift!!

5. Huggies Lavender and Chamomille Wash and Lotion
This smells wonderful and is much cheaper than some washes. It lathers well also.

6. Video Monitors are a Must!

7. Fisher Price Glider
Ella Katherine takes all of her naps in this. It was actually what we gave Grayson, but he outgrew it. EK LOVES it!

8.Blankie and Passy!
She is already attached to both. This is not going to be a good situation. In order to nap she has to have both. She rubs the blankie with one hand and plays with her hair with the other. It is the cutest thing!

I am sure there are many more, but this is all I can think of for now.

It's Been Way Too Long

It's been a while since we have updated, but I will try to catch everyone up on our lives. A lot is going on in the Vitart family.
Ella Katherine in now a little over five months old. She is really getting the hang of using her hands and is obsessed with her feet and trying to talk. She is quite the healthy baby. She is so happy! All she does is laugh and smile. I think she is beginning the wonderful process of teething. WE are still on a milk only diet. She has one rice bottle at night. This child hates food. She wants nothing to do with it. She is also obsessed with our dog Gizmo. She thinks he is hilarious.

Matt finished his first year of law school. One down, two to go! He is clerking with a Court of Appeals judge for the first part of the summer. Then he is off to boot camp. Yep, he joined the Army. He will be at boot camp in Fort Knox. His mother recently came down and spent about 5 weeks with us. It was her first time to see the baby. She helped alot and we had a great time.

I recently got somewhat of a promotion and will be moving branches. I will be much closer to home and Matt. I am really excited, but will miss my coworkers. I have officially become a mom recently. I joined the minivan club. Yep you read it right. I have a minivan and I LOVE it!!! Trust me, when you have children you will understand.

We also spent our first nights away from the baby last weekend. It was hard, but we had a great time. She went and stayed with Pappy and Grammy (my parents) for the weekend. We went to the movies, out to eat, and we actually got to take a Sunday afternoon nap. You don't realize how much you miss those!
