I'm so tired of Ella waking up early, it's driving me nuts!!! I got used to sleeping until 10. I knew it was too good to be true. We got out of bed at 8:45 again. Ugh. After breakfast and Baby Einstein, because she said, "please e-i-e-i-o!" we did toddler yoga. I got a dvd 2 months ago that I've been too lazy to do. And I keep telling myself to do it, so we did. It was a lot of fun and gave me energy. It's something we will have to do once or twice a week. After nap time, Morgan called and asked if we wanted to meet her for lunch. Ella had already eaten, but I hadn't. So we met her at the mall. We went by Gap to see if they had any cute shorts, but nothing my size. I never have any luck at that Gap. Then we stopped by Build-A-Bear to check out prices. I want to build a triceratop's for Ella's 18 month b-day. Then every 1/2 birthday go get some accessory or outfit for it as a mini b-day. I saw the triceratop's 5 months ago and knew it was the one. They only had 2 left, so I called mom and asked her what I should do. She said get it and go back to do the whole ordeal. So I did and am very happy with my decision since I looked online and they don't have it there anymore. I think it'll be discontinued since they are coming out with a T-rex in 2 weeks. After the mall we went to the park to play. I was happy it was 80 degree weather, but man it got hot! We stayed 45 minutes and I couldn't take it any longer. Ella just wanted to chase this little dog around, so I wasn't sad taking her away. We haven't done much since. I got really bummed out by an email from Ella's gymboree teacher Sarah. Tomorrow is her last day. :( I really don't like any of the other teachers, so we might have to drop out. I've paid until December, so I hope they will refund me if we do decide to leave. We'll go next week and try out the teacher and then decide. But no one can ever replace Sarah!! She is amazing. But we're friends, so it's not like its the last time I'll ever see her. Hope everyone is having a great week!
