A Week of Celebration: Part 1

Ellie's birthday is this upcoming Thursday.  I cannot believe a year has almost passed!  Every one always tells you that it goes by quickly and these people are indeed correct.  Tear tear, my baby is going to be a toddler.  Wah!

Andrew and I feel so blessed that God has chosen us to be Ellie parents.  It is amazing how much love a heart can hold.  It is amazing how much Ellie has accomplished these past 12 months.  It is amazing how much a little girl can change people's lives.

The past weekend we hooked up our webcam and Skyped with my parents in St. Louis.  They wanted to see her open their present.  Here are some pictures.

After removing the bow, Ellie decided to climb right over the box to reach her set of toy keys.  Looks like she thought the gift was just another part of her "obstacle training".

The wrapping is always more exciting than the present :-)

Yay!  Big girl standing!!!

Leap Frog Table.  Thanks Awa Grandma & Grandpa!!!

  1. It meant so much for Awa Grandma and Grandpa to see Ellie open her birthday present. Isn't technology wonderful?!
