What better way to celebrate Mother's Day than to celebrate the birth of the girl who finally made me a mother. There is been no better gift than this child that we prayed for desired for for so long. I do not know where the last three years have gone, but they have indeed been the most fulfilling of the almost 31 years I have been alive. She is my mini-me, my first, my companion when I am lonely during the day.
The (strawberry) Ballerina Cupcakes
Jacob all dressed up for the special occassion...although he was way more interested in playing with my brother's blackberry. Typical male.
Eagerly awaiting to open her gifts
Waiting to release her 3 balloons
I love this picture
Some hugs with the birthday girl
Three balloons were released in Ella's honor. We sent them to heaven to God to tell him thank you for the three amazing years He has given us so far with this beautiful little girl.
There was a time when I did not know if we would ever be able to have children. And look now. Three blessings in three years. We have done nothing to deserve these special gifts. They have blessed us way more than we could ever bless them. And although the days are long, the years have gone by in the blink of an eye. She has become a little lady this past year. I am constantly amazed at her maturity, her love, and her zest for life. God has great plans for our sweet Ella!
