Stella Sitting!

Last night I was sitting at the table with Stella sitting on the table and after a moment I noticed she was not using me to support her - she was sitting ON HER OWN!! I was so elated that I took her upstairs and got the video camera out and proceeded to get footage of her sitting on her own plus a little more of the cute things she does. She is such an easy, happy baby and I just love her so much. I can't believe that she is almost 5 months old! So here she is sitting all on her own (yes she does fall down sometimes but overall, she tries to stop herself from falling):

Update on the girlies

Both Ellis and Stella had thier check up appointments scheduled for today and while I prepared for the worst, it went very well. Here are thier stats:

Ellis - 3 years old
33 lbs
38" tall (3 feet 2 inches)
Had a vision test and could read all the shapes except for the bottom row
The dr was able to look in the back of her eye, which she said she normally isn't able to do until they are 5 years old
Dr said Ellis was a very mature, healthy little girl.

Stella - 4 months
15lbs 6.5 oz (more than double birth weight) --> 75%
26" tall (2 feet 2 inches) --> 90%
Had a two vaccines - didn't cry AT ALL! She was a champ!
Hates tummy time, LOVES her bottle and can hold it herself
Loves to stand up or sit up with help - I think she might be walking soon
She loves Ellis - Ellis can make her smile any time
Total Daddy's girl - she sometimes cries when Loni leaves the room even if I am holding her. Sleeping through the night between 8-11 hours
She is a very happy, content baby, but doesn't laugh much. She will almost get to the point of giggling, but never quite crosses the line into full on laughter.

Wallingford Botanicals

Some of you may know that over a year ago I was approached by a friend of mine to be a part of an all-natural bath, body and home care business she was starting. Of course I jumped at the opportunity to be a part of something so cool and unique and for the past year and a half, we have tirelessly worked on perfecting our products. Well I am happy to announce that we are one step closer to launching the full line of Wallingford Botanicals! We now have an active Coming Soon page located at www.wallingfordbotanicals.com and are just working on getting the word out there about our products. Here is the full shot of our launch products:

We will have more pictures up once the site goes live, but here is an outline of what we are initially offering:

~ All Natural, Shea Butter Cremes, in the following scents (they are to DIE for): French Lemonade, Sweet Lavender and Fresh Grapefruit
~All Natural, Turbinado Sugar Body Scrub: French Lemonade
~ All Natural, Whipped Sugar Body Polish: Sweet Lavender
~All Natural, Himalayan Salt Soaks
~Hand-crafted Goat Milk Bar Soaps

We are also open for sponsoring events, donating product and mainly getting the word out about our products. We would love to be in salons and spas, boutiques and are open for consignment selling, wholesale or full retail. So I am calling on my blogger family for help in getting the word out about our products. Please go to the website for more information or email me at kweaver@wbotanicals.com if anyone is interested.
