Happy Birthday Elliana!
When you were born, you were the most low maintenance baby ever. You just did your own thing and were so laid back as a baby.
By your first birthday, we were convinced that you were going to be a quiet and shy little girl. You didn't enjoy your birthday party. You hid in the background and wanted to play by yourself or with me and were a little overwhelmed by all the excitement. You were definitely a momma's little girl and loved to cuddle with me and read books. You could also sit on the floor for hours with just one or two toys and entertain yourself. Your daddy and I would just sit and marvel at your determination as you struggled to figure out any new toy or problem that was put in front of you. Now, at age 2, your father and I realize your going to keep us on our toes! You are our little musician who loves life. There is always a song on your lips and a smile on your face as you dance the day away and enter your own world of pretend. You adore your sister, and it brings joy to my heart to watch the two of you create your own world of make believe. You are also our little athletic girl. Physical coordination seems to come easy to you and you aren't scared to try anything! You are still determined to teach yourself new things and intensly study those around you as you learn. I hope you are always this independent and sweet spirited, and I can't wait to see how the Lord grows you this next year. Happy Birthday Els our Bells!
