Happy Birthday Ellie Mae

And just like that, she turned 3! We were lucky to have lots of friends and family "swing on by" to celebrate Ellie's 3rd birthday. I am happy and sad all at the same time that she is growing up. I love how independent she is, but at the same time wish she needed me as much as she did this time last year. Her personality is funny because she is such a good mix of us. She is a rule follower (like her Mommy), loves chocolate (like her Daddy), is sensitive (like her Mommy), is independent (like her Daddy), and loves to spend time with her friends and family (like her Mommy and Daddy). I am adjusting to her dressing like a big girl, and SLOWLY moving away from dressing her in all smocked clothing. She owns almost as many pairs of jeans as her Daddy now!

Ariel the Fish

We had our first (I am sure of many) pet" experience for Ellie and like all other fall festival fish, she did not survive. She was a sweet fish for the 2 days. We explained that MeMe was taking care of her in Heaven. That did not go over so well...
