Pictures, because she is just so cute!!

Sitting her her birthday chair with her birthday baby before bed!

 Sitting in her big girl chair again! Wearing her shirt from her great great Aunt Kathy!

 Bedtime stories with daddy!

 Looking cute in between changes of clothes :)

 I love this shot because it shows her hair, it is just starting to curl at the bottom, so so so cute!

She decided to pose without any prompting, I love our blue/green eyed girl. She melts my heart!

pictures to update you!

So these pics are out of order, but they will catch you up on our lives lately! 

I had posted about Emma having her glenn on the 19th, so in honor of Ella's friend that day, she wore the outfit they sent her for her birthday! This reminded us often to pray! 

 She was cheezin it up!

 The headband from her friend Emma says "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

 My girly girl loves flowers and LOVES outside!

 On the September 22, we celebrated my 23 birthday!

 This is typically how I spend all day everyday and the absolute best way to spend my birthday!

 My handsome Honey who spoiled me rotten on my day!

 The best birthday present in all the world is being with these two!

 Ella and Daddy playing around!

 On September the 14th we celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary!

 Love this man!

  4 years people! And in case you are doing the math, yes I did get married a week before my 19th birthday.

 My Sunshine!

 Love a baby in footie pjs!! Ella is playing with her new Dr. Seuss books from daddy!

 My pretty girl!

Prayer for a heart friend!

You might remember one of Ella's little heart friends that we have mentioned often, Emma! Well Miss Emma had her Glenn this morning and all went well! But they have a few prayer requests as well as in general prayer that recovery goes smooth. Please left them up especially over the next 24 hours!! They are such special friends to our family!

One year ago today...

We dressed our baby girl in her going home outfit!!

 We took a picture in the room that was our home away from home for the last 7 weeks

 We Danced in the hall as we headed for the door! ;)

 We stepped out those doors to start our journey HOME!

 You were happy to go!

 Perfect sleeping angel on the 3 1/2 hour drive home

 Double rainbow we saw on the way home reminding us of God's love


 Loved by so many! Blessed!

 Sound asleep in your cradle by our bedside... right where you belong. :)

 Showing you the nursery we did for you with love and the light we left on from the day we left to the day we brought you home! 
One year ago today, we were blessed beyond measure. Today as I reflect, I am in awe of God's mercy and I am moved to tears. Ella, you are so strong... we love you forever, like you for always! You made our home complete!
