25 hours later after a miserable delivery and quite possibly the most pain I have ever experienced, I sat face to face with my bundle of joy.
Our Ella was beautiful beyond measure, I loved her more than I ever knew possible. I wanted to protect her and keep her all to myself. Thankfully that was never a possibility. Our Ella has grown into her very own person.
She has her own style...
Her own flair...
... and certainly her own ideas. She is loving, and kind, headstrong, and thoughtful. She always comes to the defense of someone in need, and her sensitivity and gentle heart melt me.
So tonight as I tucked my girl in I realized how truly blessed I am. My sweet little girl who dreams of becoming a singer. She loves dresses, and shoes, and smiles like an angel.
I have no idea where this life will take her ... but I sure do hope it takes its time getting her there. She is my little partner and I simply adore her!!
Happy Birthday Ella Bean!! Thank you for all you have taught me my little love bug. Thank you for loving me like you do. Thank you for being you!!
