So Ella is turning 3 in a few weeks and god help me if I dont feel like throwing a big hoorah! Why is it that when she gets to the age that she could finally appreciate having a birthday party, I dont feel like throwing one? I am not much of a host. Actually it gives me anxiety. The thought of setting up food and drink, making sure everyone is having a good time, all the kids are safe and sound....and all that goes along with it.
She's like a 30 year old. I dont know how it happened. Her vocabulary skills practically match mine...or do mine practically match hers? **Hmmm, something to ponder** I can remember her doing the "army crawl" across the floor before she started walking. Skipped crawling all together. Seems like yesterday. Her personality is like a 1000 watt light bulb and her heart is as big and bright as her eyes. She is so caring and concerned with other people it just melts my heart. I can not wait to see what she blossoms into.
So when I look at that little face and see the excitement in her eyes when she is having fun and interacting, how could I turn down an "Ella Day" (thats what she called it on her second birthday). She is growing up so fast and who knows if we will be able to even have another one. So I will suck it up for one day and enjoy the delight in my child's face and try to make it the best "Ella Day" possible.
