Our Valentine

8 years ago tonight we got a very special Valentine gift...

Ellie Marie!!!

That tiny baby stole our hearts.

In the years between then and now, we've been through a lot together. We've laughed, we've cried, we've screamed, we've hugged, we've taught, we've learned...

Today we celebrated.

We celebrated this girl who is growing up. We celebrated her hard work over the last year. We celebrated the progress she's made, and is still making. We celebrated Ellie!

Tonight as we ate dinner I asked...

"Ellie, was your party as great as you hoped it would be?"

And she answered...

"It was WAY better!"

And that made this mommy's heart smile. ♥

Happy 8 Ellie! I have a feeling it's going to be a great year!
