10:45 we get to the park, which is awesome and green and shady! hang out with friends, Ellis nurses and takes a nap while i get some social interaction!
12:15 of course i forget to take pictures of our little trip to the grocery store! Ellis smiled in the cart the whole time!
12:45 Ellis nurses again, then we hang out on the couch, playing with toys and watching 16 and pregnant, haha.
1:10 time for a little swing time/naptime. Ellis loves to watch himself in the mirror
1:20 Ellis is asleep, so I survey the damage in my room: pile of clothes for Salv Army (love that place)
Ellis' room- we have been trying to go through all the clothe's we have
re-organizing the dresser...
1:40 i realize i should eat before he wakes up, so here's to my first meal of the day (don't worry, i think i had a sierra mist at the grocery store...
4:10, long naps make for a happy baby wake-up

6:50 off to Mutual! Damon is with the scouts while Ellis and I are with the young women, making friendship bracelets and cards!!! (of course, forgot camera)
9:00 after getting home and nursing, now it's time for a bath! but first we spent 10 minutes trying to make Ellis laugh.
