Ella, Do you know how you light up my life each and every morning when you wake up and climb into bed with me holding your new junie b. jones book for me to read from? Do you know how my heart aches when you fall down and get a deep scratch on your leg or when i accidently push you too hard on the swings and you go flying off? Do you know how silly you are and how grateful i am for that? Especially when I"m having a bad day... you know how to cheer me up... like the day you gave all your barbies a haircut? Or when I found them lying in the nude outside getting a suntan? When I have to say no to you and you simply say, "change your mind". I love all of that. I am so lucky you are my sweet, silly, sparkly, kind-hearted, goofy, helpful, spunky, adventurous, creative, loving, spiritual, witty, beautiful, full 0f the giggles, my "big baby but still a little baby" kind of girl. Thank you for choosing me as your mother. I am blessed, truly blessed. love Mommy

I am Elinor Dashwood!

You'll Always Be My Baby

Sophia, yesterday you gave me my first kiss. You leaned your head in and gave me a big, open-mouthed slobbery one. I loved it. When I asked for another one, you did it again. Now, it's a fun game and I don't want it to end. You melt my heart, little one.

Ella (in the backseat): Mommy, I want you to have another baby.
Mommy: We have a baby, silly. We have Sophia.
Ella: No, Mommy. She isn't a little baby. She's too big for me now.

Mommy: (on the floor playing with Ella): Ella, can you be my baby again?
Ella: Yes, mommy.
Mommy: How many more days will you be my baby?
Ella: Three more.

Thank you, Ella.

Lemonade For NieNie

Ella told me last week that "special booboo's need
special band-aids". I couldn't say it any better than
that. We raised 20 bucks! If you haven't heard about
Nie and her family, click here and perhaps you can
make some lemonade too!
