Oh Miss Ella

Ella is growing bigger and bigger every day. Today, I again watched her try to crawl, only this time she moved forward towards an object. I got in front of it and I think Ella got too excited and started moving backwards again. She loves to get up on all fours and rock all around. Now Ella's is not only 'talking' her happy talking sounds like screaming. It is not only loud, but very high pitched. She loves eating too-as long as it is not peas. Ella has liked everything else I have given her to try so far. I think her favorite food is either sweet potatoes or carrots. It's hard to tell. Ella is also mastering her pincer grip (picking up items with her thumb and pointer finger). She gets to have sweet potatoes puffs with each meal (so far only breakfast and dinner) and is doing a great job. Ella figured out the concept the first time she was given the puffs. Ella also gets to drink water from a sippy cup. She has not been shy about wanting the cup either. Ella tries to take Ethan's everything she can reach from her chair and has almost drank his milk on several occasions. She is just growing up too fast!!!


Yes Ethan, I see the worm. Can you pick it up? "No!"

So curious!

It's a Zoo when you go to the zoo with 3 kids...

Ethan wanted to see what the fuss was all about

In the tunnel underneath the monkeys

Another tunnel

The boys couldn't stop staring at the woman in the coral reef. I think they were a little confused even though she explained everything. I was jealous. that looks like a lot of fun!

The boys are looking at a wolf laying down.

Having fun!

We had a great day. The boys loved the coral reef and climbing anything to see everything. They thought the beavers and the otters were pretty neat too. We saw turkeys hanging out at the zoo too on the MN trail. That was a nice surprise. I think the boys had the most fun by the shark tank. I toughed a shark, but the boys didn't want too. I think Ella would have though, if her arms were longer. Our time ended when we had one with wet pants and the other with a wet shirt and a shoe that some how made it into the shark tank then was used as a toy. There is never a dull moment at the Krueger home!

Ella eating ice for the first time. Boy did she love that! And it was hot so it was a bonus to have ice! Thanks Grandma Dinky

At the Zoo with the Trboyevich's

Running through the tunnel

Staring at the monkeys and wart hogs

My cute girl

I have no idea what he is pointing at but it seems to be moving and therefore interesting

Happy Ella

We spent forever looking at and chasing the fish. All 4 kids loved to watch them.

Happy kids :)

Checking out the cat

Alexis, Marek, Ella and Ethan

Hey look! 4 unhappy children. The all quickly became happy just as soon as we separated them. Go figure


Ethan tried to chase every chicken and rooster he could find. This was hard to convince him not to.

While in the aquatic area, Ethan ran in between the tide pool, the shark/ray pool, the sink and the dryer. Literally, he would get himself wet at any place and run to the next one. this lasted about 10 minutes. This is after he ran around most of the rest of the zoo.

Ella in the new car we picked up at a garage sale on the way to the zoo.

This is Ethan after the zoo.

Happy kiddos
