My sweet Ellie turned 5 years old today. I can’t believe it. She is growing up WAY too quickly. I told her she could have a big party with all of her friends OR do something smaller with one friend and then go to Disneyland with the family. She chose Disneyland (YEA!) so today we went to Chuck E Cheese with her friend Madison (and Madison’s family) and then came to our house for pizza, presents, and cake. It was a fun, low key day and she loved it! (Disneyland trip is in the works!)
I love my Ellie so much. She is such a happy, sweet girl and her smile is contagious. She came home from pre-school the other day and told me “mom, I was trying to be mad today like this (attempt to frown), but I just couldn’t!” (huge grin spreads across her face) We laughed and I thought – that just sums up my Ellie…unable to be anything but happy! She is outgoing, considerate of others’ feelings (she can’t stand it if she thinks someone is mad or sad), and the best big sister. She is so cute with Addison – always helping her out and showing her the ropes. She makes me smile every single day and I can’t imagine my life without her. Ellie – I love you more than you’ll ever know. (until you have your own daughter someday…then maybe you’ll know :) Happy 5th birthday!
