Dear Ella . . .

Oh baby girl! You're getting so big! Yesterday we had a mommy-daughter shopping day and we had so much fun! I just love spending time with you. We went to Plano to The Posh Petunia and picked out your birthday dress and a cute party hat. Then we had a little lunch date at Chick-Fil-A. You ate chicken nuggets and drank apple juice from a juice box straw like a big girl! (I guess we'll need to find you a sippy cup with a straw soon!) Then we went to Hobby Lobby to buy supplies for your first birthday party.

You and I were both wiped out after that, so we came home and snuggled and dozed in our chair until it was time to go to Relay for Life. We got to see Bumpaw and Grandma, Aunt Trishy and Taylor and Sarah, and Aunt Carrie, Uncle Al, Lucas and Nicholas. You even got to hear Mommy sing with our church band! What fun!!

I just loved our day together, my sweet big girl! You light up my life!!

Love, Mommy

Dear Ella . . .

You have a precious new game. In the mornings when we're nursing, you will randomly unlatch, look at me with your big blue eyes, and say "Hi!" It is the cutest thing ever! I could just melt!
