A Good Laugh

Every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday Ella heads over to Cori's(Titi's) for the day. Ella has been with Cori since she was 4 months old, and they have an unbelievable bond. Cori has three boys, Carter, Peyton, and Mason whom Ella is in complete awe of. She loves them as if they were her own brothers and they are just so sweet to her it warms my heart.

Last year Ella was the only child Cori cared for. This year, a new little, Brielle,  joined Ella and they absolutely adore each other. She can't wait to see baby B each week.

Not only is Ella surrounded by the boys and Brielle, but Cori's house is always filled with all the neighborhood kids. She loves it and is always the center of attention!

As you can imagine, Ella loves arriving to Titi's, and can't wait to get in on all the action. Here she is at drop off. She can't get out of the car fast enough and is on her way!

As you can see, she doesn't seem to mind that Mama is leaving for the day. She hardly waved and blew me a kiss without even looking at me!

Lately, Ella throws a complete fit when I come to pick her up. If she is outside when I come to get her, she usually runs inside OR throws whatever is in her hands and throws a complete fit. If she is inside, well..... I'll let the video do the talking.

Her face is priceless when she sees me, I think because she thought I was one of the boys and she was excited. Then she realized it was me and let the tantrum begin. Her tantrums usually only last a minute, then she is back to herself and ready to go. She walks out to the car perfectly happy and we're on our way home.

At first it made me kinda sad, but then I realized I wouldn't want it any other way. Do I want her screaming for me when I leave, NO THANK YOU!

I am so grateful Ella is in a safe and loving environment all day, and that she LOVES Cori and the boys. At the end of the day, that is all that matters.

Thank you Cori for taking such wonderful care of our sweet be and for loving her as if she were your own.


  1. That second video is hilarious! I can't believe that she slammed the door right when she saw you. Little gilries are so dramatic... I need to prepare myself. Ha ha! Even with all the tears she's as cute as ever and I love her little outfit!

  2. OMG!! Hilarious! It's so nice to know she loves it there! J has been the same way until recently but I think that has a lot to do with me being home with R while he's studying! Ha! And no rush for potty partying! We have been saying since Ri was weeks old that she would train early--she has never liked a wet diaper and would cry...still does if it's too wet. When Ella applies for college there won't be a potty trained at ___ age. Ha ha! Only on pre school forms ;)
