a sweet little momma



I was folding laundry earlier this evening and Ella was playing on the floor. Luckily I stopped to watch her for a second as she picked up her baby, then crawled over to get the baby's juice bottle and gave her a little drink. I just sat there and stared at her as she very sweetly took care of her baby. She did have some difficulty actually getting the bottle to baby's mouth at first, and for a few seconds sort of beat her in the head instead. Then she managed to find baby's mouth, give her a drink, then give her a hug - it was too cute. It's amazing that a year ago (last night exactly) our family looked like this...

and now we get to watch a sweet little girl grow along with her great big brothers, feed (and occasionally beat on the head) her baby doll and (her favorite activity) pushing anything with wheels and making her car sound. We are blessed for sure and look forward to celebrating Ella's turning One! on Saturday.

It is so neat to watch them do those instinctive things! She is so pretty!

And isn't it interesting that with boys, their instinctive things to do are destroy things. :)

She looks just like your mom in the photo. What a doll! Happy Birthday, Ella!
