Ella has been saving her money for a year for an American Girl doll. Along with her birthday money she had enough to buy the doll. We all went to the Mall of America to the BIG American Girl doll store and purchased Felicity.
The store is huge. It is 2 floors with a hair salon for the dolls and a bistro where you can eat with your dolls.
Here is our traditional birthday pancake!

Ella is gentle, caring, sweet, sensitive, helpful, and kind. She's also flighty and silly. Ella is the perfect little mother to Isaac. She sings to him and holds his hand and whispers softly to him. It's so fun to watch. She loves people and knows no stranger. She's a very endearing little girl who is always smiley. Ella is my child that I have to make time for and try to spend time with. She never demands my attention and easily pacifies herself and is never a bother. She was the most perfect little baby. I seriously didn't hear her cry the first year of her life. I realize how rare that is the more kids we have! :) Ella's life is a musical. She enjoys singing and music and is often in her own little world humming happily to herself. We are so thankful for the 5 wonderful years God has given us with Ella!
