Happy 1st Birthday Sweet Ella

Friday, April 10, 2009



I can't believe this day has come already! I knew it would happen since I've done this twice before but you can never be prepared for the WHOOSH of your child's first year of life. They come into your world as this teeny, tiny, fragile little being that is helpless in every sense. One short year later they are crawling, eating from the table, babbling words, sometimes walking (though not in Ella's case), playing and expressing themselves in the most amazing ways!

As I look back on these photos my eyes well up with tears knowing that my baby is growing up and I can't stop her...not that I'd want to, but I wish I could freeze time and keep her little for longer. She's grown into such a beautiful and amazing little person in such a short time. Her smile is captivating and I often find myself entranced in her deep steel blue eyes! I thank Jesus every single day for blessing me with her life! I know that HE has big plans for her and I look forward to watching them unfold! Happy Birthday baby girl! We love you!
