Happy Birthday Eve, Ellie Baby!

It's our sweet little Ellie's birthday eve and I cannot even believe it's already here.  This past year has flown by to say the least and I feel like it was just yesterday that I had a teeny tiny newborn Ellie in my arms.

Ellie girl, you have seriously rocked our world in the best way possible.  We have loved watching you grow + learn every single day.  You are a wild child - always going, going, going as fast as you can, looking to see what you can get away with next, and always looking back for a hand to hold through all of your adventures. You're a rough and tough little lady, but never fail to run over and give us hugs + kisses.  Sometimes when you hug me, you wrap your arms so tight around my neck and it completely melts my heart into a puddle.  You are curious, a kitty-chaser and you love the outdoors.  Your belly laugh is contagious and you have the best squinty-eyed smile I've ever seen.  You love to dance, your baths and your books.  You also love to help us do anything any chance you get.  Despite your desire to explore on your own two feet, you still love to be held and I find you trying to climb up my legs approximately five hundred times a day.  You are my little best friend + sidekick - a huge mama's girl and I'd be completely lying if I said I didn't absolutely love that about you.  You have quite the little personality already and are stubborn, sassy, silly, smart + as sweet as can be.  You are totally loving being a "big girl", and while I wish I could stuff you back in my belly and relive the past year all over again, I am really enjoying watching you grow up too.  You keep our hands full and our hearts even more full.  You have brought so much joy to our entire family and more love than I ever thought possible.  We love you so much, girlfriend. 

Happy First Birthday, Ellia Summer! We can't wait to celebrate with you! XO
