I can't believe it, my baby turned 3 yesterday! She's getting so tall. Daddy measured her yesterday and she's 37 1/2 inches tall. Ella's taking after Daddy, he's 6 ft. I sure hope she has his metabolism too. He is constantly eating :) I really don't know where the three years have gone. Seems like just yesterday that we brought Ella home from the hospital. I feel so sad some days thinking how the time is flying by. I worry I'm not doing enough for her. I'm even getting weepy just typing this. I just feel so useless some days.
We had the family up on Saturday for supper. Roast beef, potatoes supreme, salad, mixed vegetables, ranch buns, and of course chocolate cake. It wouldn't be a birthday party without chocolate cake (well maybe mine). Ella was so good at the party, she plays so nicely with her two cousins. We seemed to have had a Disney princess theme even without trying. Ella got so many nice things. She gave out thank you hugs and kisses -even for Uncle Glenn. He has a beard and for some reason Ella always takes a while to warm up to him and usually won't hug him at all. I don't understand it, every male in our families, except Daddy and Grandpa, have beards of some sorts. Ella is just wary of them for the first part of a visit and then everything is fine?
Here's my beautiful family. I sometimes wonder how I deserve them!
