Happy Birthday Ella Rose!


Happy 7th Birthday to my sweet girl! (Excuse the poor picture quality but I had to take pictures of pictures.) How the time flies! Seven years ago we were blessed with our little Ella. She cried so much in the beginning that we have a lot of pictures in her baby album that look like this...
But underneath her acid reflux cries was an amazing personality just waiting to come out. When she smiled, her whole face lit up....





She was always shy, unsure of new places....






And loved a good time outdoors....







There is never any hiding it when Ella is happy, the whole world knows it...






She is the child who always crept in our bed in the middle of the night. The one who cried so hard going to preschool that her mama would leave the parking lot in tears, just waiting for the teacher to call and say she was calmed down and doing okay.....





She has outgrown the reflux, outgrown the crying at school and is more likely to watch cartoons in the morning instead of coming in our bed.....








But she will always be our baby girl.





When I heard this song, it was as if it was written for her. Happy Birthday Ella, we are so proud of you and love you so much!

Awww - Happy Birthday Ella! My second child had terrible reflux too and it had such anegative effect on his personality as a baby. I am glad Ella grew out of it beautifully!
