8 Years, How Did That Happen?!

This beautiful girl is 8 years old today. Last year I wrote this post about her. I was going to just repost it but thought I would link instead and write a new post for my sweet baby girl.


Let me tell you a little something about Ella. She is one of the kindest souls I know, so sensitive to how other people feel. If I'm having a rough day or feeling down, she is the one who will come give me a hug. She can just tell what you need.


If you want a patient friend, Ella is your girl. She has such a knack for teaching, I know she will make an amazing mama some day. There is no shortness or impatience in her voice, she'll show me how to work her DS without getting annoyed as I die 10 times playing Mario Bros.


Ella has inherited my love of decorating. She is always fixing things in her room and loves to fill her bed with comfy pillows and her favorite stuffed animals. If I go into an antique or thrift store, she's right behind me, excited to see what we will discover. She is the one who will notice my latest project and stop to tell me how much she loves it. I've started asking her to help me pick things out, the girl is a natural I tell you. HGTV, watch out!


She is funny and smart, understanding and gentle. She loves her family, her friends, and her dogs. Her laughter is loud and contagious and she will always have a smile for you.


Happy 8th Birthday to our Ella Rose! We love you tons and tons......

Happy Birthday to your little one. I love that she is into decorating. When I was little my mother and I would move furniture around and have fun chooching and now my daughter seems to have an opinion on what should go where, lol!
