To Ella--With Love on Your 1st Birthday

Dearest Ella,
This year with you has been all kinds of wonderful (with a little bit of craziness that had Mommy questioning her sanity).
You are sweet and dramatic and a gorgeous mess. 
You are delighted easily, and your laugh is infectious. 
Your smile is charming and hilarious with those six teeth placed just so. I dare anyone to stay in a grumpy mood after witnessing that grin. 
We can't believe how much we love you. 
I re-read your birth story last night, and I couldn't help but feel just a little sad. Your birth was not the one I wanted, but it gave me you. Adorable, snuggly, cheerful, smiley you. 
You were so tiny, yet so very, very strong.  You went from my less-than-5-pounds-peanut to my over-17-pound big girl. 
You are a precious gift, and we look forward to seeing who you become!  
So, so happy you're ours. 
Happy first birthday, Love!
You are so very, very loved, our Ella-Bella.
Our Baby Girl.  
Our Beautiful. 
Our Snuggle Bunny. 


  1. Ella is a delight and, you are right, no one can stay in a grumpy mood around that 1000 watt smile!! She is precious beyond belief. We look forward to watching her grow. Happy Birthday to our sweet Ella Bella. We love you and Jack and your mommy and daddy.
