6 months old
Ella was so small, but so beautiful. She had my "rosebud" lips as my dad calls them. She was born with a little redish hair and no eyelashes. We were amazed at how tiny her hands and feet were. They nurses encouraged us right away to "hold" her by placing our hands on her while she was in the incubator.
Miss Ella, you are beautiful and we cannot imagine our life without you! Your smile warms our heart and we love hearing your coos and giggles. You are a good baby, except for the late evenings or when
you are hungry. You are doing so great health-wise. We are so proud of our tiny fighter!
You have the biggest, brightest, beautiful blue eyes. You still have tiny feet and hate having socks or shoes on. I love your small birth mark on your chest area. You make silly grunt noises when you are pooping...that make us laugh. You love standing on daddy's lap and looking into his eyes-it makes you smile every time. You love hearing our voices. We love watching Carter and you interact, and know you will grow up to be great friends. We love you! Happy 1/2 year big girl!
