Rich and I babysat Ellie Grace this weekend. Brian and Kellie celebrated their 2nd anniversary with a short weekend trip to Universal Studios in Orlando.

We got the first shift with little Ellie Grace. I took Friday off and we stayed with the little button face overnight until about 4pm on Saturday.

She's so pleasant and easy to take care of. It's easy to see she has a good home and calm parents because she is just as content as she can possibly be. She only cries when she's hungry otherwise she's smiling and laughing all the time.

She's drooling like crazy so teeth may not be too far off. And she's coo-ing and forming her lips in the cutest shapes when she tries to talk to us. We were so glad we got to stay with her for a long time. Kellie's mom took the 2nd shift on Saturday from 4pm to Sunday afternoon, then Brian's mom came over and took the 3rd shift from Sunday afternoon to early today when mommy and daddy came back.

Obviously she demanded a lot of time, so I didn't get to take as many pictures of her as I would have liked but I did snap a few. .

Pop took a bunch of video and loaded it to YouTube, it's 5 minutes long if you want to watch it

Watched it!
Kinda boring baby video though.
Mine and Manda's baby videos were boring too, so don't worry! =)

what a cutie! Was this all at your house? Looks like you moved her in with all of her baby equipment.

Olive, she doesn't do anything yet, just coo and move around. She'll be loads more fun when she starts talking and walking.

Jen, all the grandparents kept her at her house. Way easier!!

NAH! NAH, to you I say!
I know that. It's just boring and stuff.
I have an evil idea! You should have Rich voice in words for her to say. Heh Heh. Told ya it was evil.
