Kicking Off Ellie's 2nd Birthday Week!

September 16, 2009 was the day a little squirmy bundle of cuteness and chubby cheeks changed our lives.  The day our daughter Ellie Marie Theurer aka Ellie Bellie Bear, Bear Bear, The Chunky Chicken, Chicka-A-Boom-Boom was born.

She used look like this:


Wah!  She looks like a big girl.  Where is my baby????

She used to look like this:

See that sweet look of innocence and crazy muppet hair.
And this:
There's that punk!

Now, like this:

Look at that hair!  The back is even longer.
This can mean only one thing. . . I am old.

Oh where has my baby gone?  Who is this full-blown toddler Bear?

A Year in Review:

Beary Special Birthday!
