Tag...I'm it!

I was tagged by Beka Pharr to post the 4th picture in the 4th folder on my computer.
Here it is!

This picture is of Nolen Guthrie and Ella Tate at Katie Watson's house. Nolen is one of Ella Tate's MANY boyfriends (don't tell her Daddy) at church and we love him! Nolen was a little over 3 months old and Ella Tate was about 2 1/2 months old in this picture.

Ok, I now tag Courtney Guthrie, Katie Watson, Julie Tant and Tracey Heredia.

Here are the instructions:
Go to the 4th album in the place you store your pictures on your computer
Select the 4th picture in that album (no exceptions)
Post it in this post with an explanation and link it back to your tagger
Tag 4 people to do the same thing

On her own

Ella Tate is trying to sit up some on her own. She still needs some help (and padding), but she is slowly getting the hang of it!
after I let go of her hand she fell over and hit her head on the floor, so I thought it might be a little safer to put some pillows around her!

I tried using her doll as a distraction...and it worked~YAY!

Weekend Happenings

On Thursday night, Gran and Papa came over to babysit while Hunter and I went out to celebrate Valentine's. She did great (or so they say)!

(I couldn't get Gran in this picture...she has now wised-up to me and knows that most of the pictures I take will end up on the blog!)

Friday night we went to Hunter's basketball game. Ford, Grady and Nolen were there, too, to watch their daddies play. Ella Tate loved watching them run up and down the court.

On Saturday we went to Sparta to see Hunter's grandparent's (Nana and PaPa). We enjoyed getting to see them and Ella Tate loved all of the attention she got from Nana and PaPa!

When we got back from Sparta, Hunter, Ella Tate and I went over to Uncle Tommy and Aunt Katherine's to see Turner and Mary Elizabeth. Ella Tate loves to watch the big kids play!

While we were there, Aunt Katherine gave us Turner and Mary Elizabeth's ExerSaucer to borrow and Ella Tate LOVES it!

New purchase and random pictures...

I got this desk earlier this week...Happy Valentine's Day to me! I am super excited about it and can't wait to fill ALL of the drawers up with desk-y things! Since the room that was our office is now the nursery, our computer, printer, etc. has been housed underneath a table in the den. So, now it all has a home again and I love it! Random pics of Ella Tate.
I was trying to capture the tear that was on her cheek, but you can hardly see it. She was pretty pitiful!

We went to see my grandmother last Friday. My parent's were there, too, so my dad "babysat" Ella Tate at my aunt's house while my mom and I visited with my grandmother. This is how I found her when we returned!

Thanks Katie!

My friend Katie took some pictures of Ella Tate at her house last week. Here are just a few of them. I think she did agreat job and should start doing it professionally!

Fun Times

Ella Tate loves her activity mat
Getting ready to take her bath
We went to the Watson's house to watch the Super Bowl.
Ella Tate, Ford and Nolen had so much fun together!

Here are all the little kids that were there~Ty, Ella Tate, Ford, Nolen and Grayson. Grady and Shane were too busy to sit down for a picture! Once again Ella Tate was the only girl...I think she'll end up having a love/hate relationship with these boys!

"Aunt" Lauren, "Aunt" Carrie and Ella Tate. We had a delicious dinner at Macaroni Grill last night. It was SO good to see you girls!
