Happy Birthday Ellie!

Happy Birthday Dear Ellie, Happy Birthday to you!!!
Today our little princess, our fourth child, is two years old. Where oh, where has the time gone?!
I can remember them swaddling her and bringing her to me after her birth and as I held her in my arms, my heart was wrenched with a love I'd known before, but was unique in its own way.
I'd waited a long time to have her because her twin brothers had me pretty busy and the first three had come so quickly together. First I had ONE and less than two years later I had THREE! I wanted a baby that I could cuddle and spoil and be all my own when the older ones didn't want to be cuddled as much any more.
And then here she was Ellie Eileen!


She listens intently to Mommy's every word and quickly takes notes to remember the important parts!


Funny, did you say funny?! Oh, only my Mommy tells me the funniest stories :)



But if you think my Mommy is funny, You need to get a load of my Daddy...now he CRACKS me up!

Yes, my dear heart, my Ellie ~ babyhood is left behind as now you are a big toddler girl with BIG ideas. But you'll always be Mommy's baby no matter what!
We all love you Ellie, Happy 2nd Birthday!
~ Mommy, Daddy, Katie, Ian and Jacob ~
......and to steal from a fellow blogger.....
I am grateful to God for the four little lives he has entrusted me with. I shall strive to do justice to this most important task and to care for and love His most precious creations.

  17. Oh my gosh, I feel a lump in my throat! They do grow up so fast!! And I totally understand what you mean about wanting a baby to cuddle when the bigger kids don't want that kind of momma-love anymore. :) Happy birthday, Ellie!!

  32. Oh What a sweetie! I know exactly how you feel - oh it seems like yesterday I was in the hospital with all my boys. It's that vision alone that makes me want to have another, but I don't think that's going to happen! We are pretty happy with three. :) Happy Birthday Ellie!! :)
