Happy Birthday!

When we walked into the hospital that cold February morning, I had no idea just how much my life would change. 10 hours of labor, one c-section, and three days of recovery later, you were in my arms, and we were going hom.




Although, the first few months were rough, you continued to grow and become the little ball of energy that you remain to be. Your smile is contagious and I can't help but love you more and more.r>

Today, sweet baby, you are two years old. You get more excited about life as you grow into such a big girl.


I know that sometimes I find it hard to keep up with your love of life, the way your bounce, yell, and play. You can be quite sassy as you try to voice your opinion to mommy and daddy, but more and more each day, we see you growing into a girl who wants to love Jesus. You are beginning to make big girl choices and you make baby steps of independence. While your strong personality can try your mommy's patience sometimes, I love who you are and who God has made you to be. I pray you use that God-given personality to love Jesus and love others.

Jesus, may Ellie Kate came to know you at an early age. May she use the talents and abilities that You have given her to win others for eternity. Shape her and mold her into the women You want her to be. Amen.

Go change the world, Ellie Kate. Mommy loves you.
