This girl entered the world with high drama.  "We will be happy if she gets to 34 weeks" turned into "induction on due date" turned into "c-section the next day."

Brand new Ellie.

Ellie spent her first three weeks in the NICU, healing from duodenal atresia surgery and learning to eat.

So many wires.  And the first kind of tape they used gave her a rash, so she looks a little rough.
Ellie had a rough first six months with open heart surgery added to the mix.  But by a year, she was a pretty healthy kid.

First birthday party prep.

She really, really liked the blue icing.

Ellie, we love you so much, and we can't wait to see what the coming year has in store!

Second birthday party.  She wanted a moo party.
Her third birthday was on a snow day.
We had a good year.

Happy fourth birthday, my sweet and crazy girl.

A few days before her birthday, I asked if Ellie would go outside for a photo shoot.
She said no.  She did agree to play with her own camera inside.

Pin It!
