Ellis is One!!

Where has the time gone?

This little peanut is one year old TODAY:

If life goes fast with the first child, it flies with the second!

At one year, Ellis is walking with push toys, standing alone for seconds, has cut four teeth and is adding curls to her hair with each day!

I love this girl so much. She is so dainty and sweet with an undeniably curious side. I catch her doing so many things her brother never would have at this age–dragging toilet paper across the bathroom, trying bugs and slugs (and anything else she can find outside), climbing chairs, couches, and stairs like a pro, and making a beeline to the sound of running bath water. You can find her with her thumb in her mouth at any given moment, and she has the cutest vocabulary of babble.

Though today is the day we mark one year with our Ellis girl, last Saturday morning was when we celebrated. We had family over for a pancake party. The pancakes were yummy, the weather was gorgeous, and the girl was adorable. It was a sweet celebration.

The grub, including strawberries, bananas, chocolate chips, sprinkles, pecans, and coconut toppings.
