Ellie is 1!

Next up… Ellie!5245_336-2
How did this happen?  I mean, seriously it went by so fast!
For Ellie’s party we had a big family gathering.  We ended up having over 40 people in our house!  I didn’t get to take very many pictures, but it was tons of fun, and Ellie got spoiled rotten.  We officially have a good collection of girl toys in our home!117127128132137
She was pretty timid about the cake at first…but once I cut it open for her there was no stopping her138149153156
Ellie at 1
Ellie has a personality all her own.  She is sweet and happy and loves attention, but make her mad at your own risk.  She will turn on you!
One day, I was packing our stuff for a last minute trip to Park City, and she wanted me to hold her.  I couldn’t hold her, so she followed me around screaming at me.  When Ace got home, he picked her up and made her happy.  Once I was done packing, I went to take her from Ace, and she snubbed me!  She glared at me, then refused to come to me…for days!  This girl knows how to hold a grudge!
She can go up and down the stairs all by herself, but it still terrifies me
She started walking 2 weeks before her 1st birthday and hasn’t slowed down since.  She’s even tries copy her brothers when they start jumping up and down.101We got her to walk for the remote.
She is a great eater.  The only food she has refused to eat so far is eggs…oohh she hates them.
She loves to dance! She will start dancing to any kind of music…even me singing around the house! She will dance and sing during the hymns at church too.
She can say “Mama” “Dada” “Yeah” “Hi” and always says “Mmmmm” when she tastes something yummy
After her naps, she requires a 5-10 minute cuddle time (Not that I mind).  If I try to put her down to play right when she wakes up, she looses it.  So we just sit on the couch together until she sees something that catches her interest…then she’s off!
She loves, loves, loves purses.  Particularly mine. It’s like she can sense where it is, puts the strap around her neck, and pulls everything out……  If you come to my house with any kind of bag…watch out.
My awesome sister in law, Sami, took the kids birthday pictures, and even though Ellie was being a little crazy, maniac child…she still managed to get some adorable pictures of her…5245_77-25245_2475245_248-25245_3705245_418-2
We love our Ellie Bo Bellie!  Happy Birthday Baby Girl!
