Ella Avery Maka-dang-dang

Sorry for the delay. I assure you I have been here lingering. Two weeks ago I took a trip to Seattle and stayed with my good friends, The Maki’s. You might remember them from such episodes as…I took pics of Cindy’s belly this summer.

Well, as of late November her belly is empty and rock hard again. And new to the party is little Ella Avery Maki. Although my sister, sister-in-law and other friends have had babies, Cindy is the first in our tight little college group of friends to procreate. And I cried when she gave birth. Literally. Well, I didn’t sprout any official drops buy my eyes did well. I took a cell phone pic to prove it. I deleted it for obvious reasons.

Cindy and Aaron are the sweetest parents. Aaron just gets right on in there with the diapers and the dirty work. And he cooks. Ella is one lucky girl to have them.

Ella just kind of chills. You can tell she has her parent’s temperament…just eats, sleeps and stays happy. She basically only cries when she’s hungry so I guess she somehow has a little of me in her too.

Both parents have bright blue eyes and bright blonde hair. Well…HAD. Sorry Aaron. But I did know him in his hair days and I can attest that it was bright blonde. It was no mystery what their little monkey would look like.

While there Cindy and I created a little makeshift studio in her bedroom. We played dress-up with Ells Bells (which I enjoy singing to the tune of Hells Bells). Not to get confused with the other song I sang tirelessly to her, “You can stand under my umbrella ella ella eh eh eh.”

Love this family. Thanks for the great weekend guys. High-res files can be downloaded or purchased here.

Kelly T - Hey Crissie…I was reading your blog and it was from your post on Friday October 30, 2009…I think you called it something like you being selfish??

Doesn't look like you needed it anyway! ;)

Crissie - OH OH OH!!! I remember what you are talking about. No, sadly I didn't win it. And I know I could use it! :)
