|Gator tutu set from Aunt Karen|
Oh Ella, where have the last 6 years gone? You are growing into such a sweet, responsible little lady, even though you are our pickiest eater and you somehow make it into our bed every single night without either one of us realizing it. :) You are an amazing helper to your momma, you love your siblings so much and you are the best back-scratcher in the family (don't tell your daddy I said that).
You are excelling in your schoolwork with 1st grade math curriculum and already have amazing reading skills. I can see a very creative side to you when you are working on arts and crafts projects, and you love to help Mommy decorate for the holidays or set up for parties and dinners here. Your quiet spirit and willingness to do what you are supposed to are definitely very much appreciated among the chaos! My only wish is that you could somehow convince your siblings to sleep in as late as you do! Let's work on that, okay? :) We love you so much, Ella Bella. Happy Birthday to you!
