Ella''s 1st Birthday

I can't believe that Ella turned one today!! Times flies. It's hard to believe that a year ago, she was a tiny 7# 10 oz. Now she is 19 lbs, walking, babbling, blowing kisses, giving hugs, feeding herself...Wow, how can someone so little learn so much in 1 year?!  I feel so blessed to have a healthy baby girl that I love sooooo much. 
We celebrated on Saturday with a few family and friends. The party was a bumble bee theme and I made her outfit out yellow/black fabrics. She looked absolutely adorable!! Of course, she had no idea everyone was there to see her. Although, I do think she was a little overwhelmed with all those people in her house! She didn't know how to act. She got too many gifts, including a sandbox that she has thoroughly enjoyed. 

She was very lady-like with the cake. She never really dug in, but just ate the icing. I do admit that I was slightly disappointed that she was so "proper" =)
Maybe she wasn't too proper

Aunt Elizabeth gave her a dog and she's giving it a hug. She just learned to bark like a dog! 

Aunt Catherine and uncle Jeremy sure are fond of her. She isn't lacking in love!
