We finally took the time to create a new play space for Ella. We’ve been trying to get her to explore outside of her Pack-n-Play, but she never seems to like it as much. Having videos handy is the key. So, we found an old TV in the basement along with an old notebook computer. After Josh worked his magic, we just select which movie of Ella’s to play and it appears on the TV. Once complete, we placed a comfy blanket on the carpet to create a softer, defined space for her to explore. She LOVES it. We’re excited because this is another big step for Ella. From this point forward, we will try and use the Pack-n-Play less and less.

Lola likes being close and decided to hang out with Ella in her new play space. So cute…

Yay! Adorable Ella!!! Way to go on making the move out of the pack & play. Lola sure has made herself at home, huh? Hope you had a wonderful holiday.

Looks like everyone at the West house loves Lola…well maybe not Macy so much! So happy to see Ella so comfortable with her. Congratulations on a new play area. That’s a huge step for the New Year.

So cute to see Lola have her “hand” on Ella. Looks like she’ll make sure she stays in her play place. lol Ella looks so beautiful and all that hair is just a bonus. Glad to see that your family is doing well. God Bless. LoriAnn and the Gang
