That's right... on January 29th we went SWIMMING! Well, actually hot tubbing.... Ella LOVED the water and I think she would've jumped right in had she known what she was doing. She loved to splash the water by kicking her feet but couldn't quite figure out why her face was getting so wet!

And that about says it all when it comes to the Gabel kids! Thanks to Benjamin and Noah, we now have a shirt that let's everyone know it! And a little snooze time in the car on the way home from church yesterday ... with her new shades!

We went for Ella's 6 month check-up on Monday and she is staying long and thin! She was 27 inches and weighed 15 lbs 8 ounces. She will soon out grow her infant car seat (at 29 inches) so we are now shopping around for a new car seat. Dr. Noah also told us that Ella is perfectly capable of sleeping 10-12 hours straight through the night and not just the 8 hours she'd convinced mommy of. So the doc encouraged us to let her cry and warned it could take up to a week to settle in. Monday night Ella woke up twice, but only cried for about 30 minutes each time. Last night she slept all the way through until about 5:45 AM. Not bad, except she'd gone to bed an hour later than normal so this was her usual 4 AM wake up time. But this time she managed to yell for just a few minutes and then went back to sleep. Hopefully by this time next week ALL of the Gabels will be resting straight through the night!
