(this was supposed to post…oh, FIVE months ago, but better late than never!)
Dear Ellie Grace,
WOW!! My little 2 pound princess is FIVE years old…I absolutely can not believe it!
Ellie, you are every single thing that is beautiful and wonderful about life!
You are the answer to my prayers.
You are true beauty.
You are smart, funny and so compassionate.
You are absolute perfection to me.
I love waking up next to you every morning.
I love that you ask me to look at your big muscles and your “big” legs every single day. You tell me they look like they are five now!
I love that you help me cook dinner almost every night. You love to get your stool and use a butter knife to cut veggies for me!
I love that you have so much patience with Cullen! He NEVER leaves you alone or lets you play alone and you roll with it every single time! You are a wonderful big sister.
I love that you cheer Cullen on when he uses the potty. You care so much about every single person in our family. Your level of compassion for people and animals and life should be inspiring to others.
I think that it is adorable that you care so much about what you look like before you leave the house! You told daddy not long ago that you wouldn’t wear a certain outfit because it just didn’t match! Hilarious…but, I can say you definitely get that from me!
You are boarder line OCD about brushing your teeth! You ask us ALL.THE.TIME if what you are eating has sugar and if it does you simply won’t touch it! If you do eat it we have to be at home and you run to brush your teeth immediately. I hate to admit this, but I lie to you sometimes just so you can enjoy a sugar treat every now and then!
We decided to clean out some of your old toys and give them to kiddos that were in need and you came downstairs with an entire bag full of baby dolls. You refused to get rid of one stuffed animal, but you could care less about the baby dolls! Dr. Doolittle in the future maybe??
You are in the 75% percentile for height and weight! 42 inches tall and 43 pounds!
Your favorite color changes daily, but your favorite food is pizza and macaroni and cheese
At 5 years old you told mommy you wanted to be a “chef girl” when you grow up!
You love family movie night and sharing popcorn!
You still say: kangarooF, nacteria (bacteria), perpume and a few other words that make us laugh! I don’t have the heart to correct you b/c I think it is so cute!
You LOVE homeschool! When people ask you if you are in kindergarten you say “YES and I go to homeschool”
You played soccer on a co-ed team this season and HATED it! You told daddy that you would only play on a girl team from now on!
I am so madly in love with you…my little miracle girl! You bring me joy on a daily basis and I am forever grateful to God for blessing us with you. The last five years have been filled with so much joy because of you.
I love you with all of my heart forever and ever!
