    Ella is killing me with the cuteness, and I know I say this every time, but I am not even a baby person! Those EYES!

    She is a cutie and don't let Bart tell you otherwise! Amelia had a little outfit made out of that exact same print that I had her wear on a weekly basis. It was one of my all-time favorites. She just looked so cute! Your little Ella looks just as cute!

    Hands down darling. My goodness, those CHEEKS!!!! I love her.

    Missy wore this exact shirt yesterday!! only it's 0-3 size, so it's more a tunic-y shirt than a dress, so she wore it over bright green pants, worn by both boys, and a long sleeved green onsie. It is one of my favorites.

    There is a very specific period of time in which muumuus are cute. Ella is in that period.

    (Also, Mummu is Finnish for Grandma. It's pronounced the exact same way.)

    I'm going to say "darling muumuu" which, of course, is only possible in baby's clothing.

    (My mom wears muumus. That is NOT a muumu.)

    She's adorable.

    sophie was looking with me and said, "ohhh! she's so cuuuute!" i'd have to agree.

  • Reply Lindsay February 9, 2011 at 9:42 pm

    Definitely darling! And even if it's a muumuu (i would have googled the spelling of that too!) she's so pretty like her mama, she could wear a paper sack and look cute!

    I kind of loathe this word but she is seriously precious — especially in the last shot. Wowza.

  • Reply LeAnne February 9, 2011 at 10:19 pm

    I say beyond darling. That last picture is priceless. She is simply adorable!

    hahahaha so cute! I love the Hawaiian language because it is so phonetic (which unlike the word I am trying to spell). Such a cute outfit, where did you find it? Great photos too. You seem to capture something special in each picture.

    man your kid is cute.

    I can't stand how stinking cute she is!

  • Reply Chelsea February 10, 2011 at 1:05 am

    I might be a little biased (especially since I don't think I've seen pictures of Bart as a kid), but I think she looks a lot like her Mom! Oh, and the outfit it very cute. Tell Bart this is the time in her life she can wear anything and look adorable!

    Oh my, what a little darling! The dress, too. The print is wonderfully 1960's.

  • Reply lifeofadoctorswife February 10, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    Darling. To the max.

    Bart is wrong! That sundress is adorable. Perfect for warm and sweaty summers.

  • Reply Samantha February 15, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    AHHH! Her FACE! Especially that little chin in the last pic. Killing me with cuteness. Seriously.

  • Reply Young People in Love February 15, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    AH! THAT FACE!!! I love her little profile chin in the last one. SERIOUSLY.
