That's right. Part 1. This little girl has more birthday celebrations than anyone I know, but she also enjoys her birthday more than anyone!!!
It helps that we were in Georgia the week before her birthday so we got to celebrate with our family down there! Her first birthday party was a pool party at Grandad and BeBe's house!
Ella looked so cute waiting for her "guests!"
She totally looked like a little surfer girl : )
My beautiful girl....she is growing up WAYYYYYY too fast!!!
I LOVE this picture but it's blurry : (
Grandad, Ella and BeBe
With sweet Bubba too!!!!
Paige and Ella.....I think Paige has grown even more since we have been here (remember she is only 4!!!!!)
Dustin and Hunter
Ella tried on several occasions to open her presents...without the rest of us, so she was super excited when it was finally present time! Grandad and BeBe got Ella a doll that has very long hair....
to go with her new salon chair! Ella LOVES to play hair salon these days!!! She loves this!
She got a coloring book, some cool crayons and some My Little Ponies from Paige!! She was excited!
Bubba got her a Woody, Jesse and Bullseye
Grandmom and Grandad got her new clothes and a diaper bag ("Mommy Bag") for her new Cabbage Patch doll, and Go Fish, and a little picture frame from the Cabbage Patch Hospital and they put her and baby Lexi Caillou's picture in it! She loved it!
Hugging the picture of herself : )
Opening Nana's present!
Nana got her an ice cream cone making kit for Playdoh and a Monster's Inc playdoh kit where she can cut their hair!!! She was none to happy when I packed it up tonight. Sorry Ella!!!!

I am a mother to two incredible children. Hunter is 8 years old and Ella Grace is 6 years old. My children are my life, my true joy. My life was turned upside down when my daughter was born and surprised us all by having Down syndrome. Since her birth I have come from sorrow and a sense of loss to greater happiness than I ever imagined and I owe it all to The Amazing Ella Grace!

My face may be different,but my feelings the same.I laugh and I cryand take pride in my gains.I was sent here among you to teach and to loveas God in the heavenslooks down from above.To Him I'm no different,His love knows no bounds;It's those here among you, in cities and townsthat judge me by standardsthat man has imparted,but this family I've choosenwill help me get started.For I'm one of the children,so special so few,that came here to learnthe same lessons as you.That love is acceptance, it must come from the heart;we all have the same purpose,though not the same start.The Lord gave me lifeto live and embrace,and I'll do it as you do,but at my own pace.-Unknown
