Happy Birthday Ella Bella



It's hard to believe that my little Ella is already 2 years old! It seems like she has grown up so fast. She has such a fun little personality and is extremely independent! Here is a list of Ella's favorite things and funny things about her. (Remember this is my journal so I am listing a lot)

-She loves to have books read to her
-She likes to watch cycling because she always thinks that it's her uncle TJ racing

-Ella is very independent and will get mad at you if you try to put on her shoes. She'll say, "NO! I do it!"
-She also likes to pick out her outfit for the day and has recently started to take off her clothes by herself.
-She gets giddy when I wiggle my fingers at her, she'll squeal "tickle bug" and start laughing before I even start tickling her.
-She is getting the hang of potty training and usually uses the potty at least twice a day
-She thinks that any church (or tall building) is a temple and insists on singing "I Love to See the Temple"
-Ella loves to go bowling (that is what we did for her birthday party)
-She really enjoys the zoo and knows all of the animals
Ella is such a joy in our lives. Every single day she surprises us with something new that she has learned. She makes us laugh and puts a smile on our faces every day. I can't imagine my life without her. I am so thankful that Heavenly Father has made her part of our family. Ella we love you!
