First Vacation!

It was a big week for Ella: on Saturday (8/20) she turned 6-months old! Apparently the days of placing a note with her age info next to her are over, because anything she can reach now goes straight to her mouth...
1 more bag and we'd have to charter a cargo plane.
A good book helps pass the time.
Also on this day we flew to Destin, FL for a short vacation.  After packing a few (small) items, we hopped on a plane and flew to the beach.  Ella did better than expected on the plane ride as well as the hour drive to our condo.
Upon arrival, we wasted no time walking down to the beach...Ella barely allowed me to take this picture...

She settled in and really seemed to enjoy herself throughout the trip.
Go ahead, take a picture.  I'll just sit here.
who dat?
mmm, tasty.
Do these shades make me look fat?
Looking for sharks...
Stop taking pictures - I've got work to do.
Unfortunately all good things must come to an end and before we knew it, we were headed to the airport for an early flight back to Nashville for her 6-month checkup.  Again, Ella did great on the plane, except we did have a slight disagreement over who should get use of the in-flight entertainment...

So long, everybody!

Ella's doctor said she is very healthy and, despite being in the 11th Percentile for height, is growing proportionately.  Maybe we'll mix in some protein shakes in-between feedings. -Adam
