Ellie Goes to Chicago

Hey, everyone. James, Ellie and I are currently in Indianapolis visiting our very good friends the Cornwells. We spent this last weekend in Chicago meeting up with some of the girls from my Babycenter bulletin board I've been on since I found out I was pregnant with Ellie. All the girls on the board also had due dates of May 2006 for their firstborns, so we've all shared a lot together. There are over 30 girls on the board, and 9 of us were able to make it to Chicago.

We drove again (this was nothing compared to New York!), and Ellie did well again. Here are a few pictures for you:

Ellie's new mad face. (I don't even think she knows it looks mad....)

Hope everyone has a great fourth of July! We're looking forward to celebrating Ellie's 2nd one tomorrow with the Cornwells. We'll post pictures of that soon!
