She's Sweet, And She's Six

Sweet, Savvy, Smart, Six.

Ella, today is your birthday. It's your 6th birthday!

My girl, my 1st born, my little lady, my sanity...

You are my helper in so may ways. You have taken on way more responsibility than any other kid I know - all while sporting the sweetest - 1 tooth missing - smile...

This past year has been incredible - you have grown in so many ways. You are such a little sponge, you soak up every little piece of info. You walked into Kindergarten with a hop in your step, and we watched you pass up all our expectations. I am so proud of you, Ella!

You make me want to be better.

You are an amazing big sister, an example, a leader, an encourager, and just a bundle of fun...

6 years ago today, by God's Grace, you made me a mother. Time goes so quickly, and you are growing so fast - I would appreciate if you would slow it down a bit :)!

I loved spending the day with just you. Talking, laughing, getting our nails painted, picking out party supplies for next weekend, and just listening to you, my little lady. Let's do these little Ella & Mommy day's more often, ok? :)

Happy 6th Birthday, sweet Ella! We love you!
