Dear Ellie

Dear Ellie,

I can't believe you are four years old already! I will never forget the day you were born. The sound of your Daddy's voice saying, "Oh! It's a girl!" and the sound of your first cry. I'll never forget your face when the nurse placed you on my chest. I very distinctly remember looking down at the precious gift we'd been given and thinking, "Holy cow, she looks EXACTLY like my baby pictures!" And I will never forget the immediate and overwhelming love I felt for you and the closeness I felt to God and to your Daddy as I held you in my arms for the first time.

I love you forever,

Mommy.

  2. Happy Birthday Ellie! What a big girl you are! I remember when you were a tiny, tiny baby and every time your mommy sang "Good morning, good morning!" You would get a GIGANTIC smile. Just imagine your mommy's smile without teeth. That's what it looked like.
