January 2008- I'm thankful she became so much more independent! She wanted to begin dressing herself (as you will see her style choices in the above picture!), and I was all for that! With Reid being a newborn...I was so pleased that she wanted to be the big girl! I always remember seeing people with multiple kids and some would be all in mismatched clothes and maybe wearing winter boots in July....I would always tell myself that I would NEVER let my kids go out in public like that. Really???? HA! How funny is that...I could care less if she was wearing a leotard and Batman wings out in public...as long as she did it herself and helped me out....I am a happy camper!
February 2008- I am thankful for family love and togetherness!
March 2008- I am thankful that Ellie will about try anything once!
April 2008- I am thankful that Ellie takes time to stop and enjoy what life is really about.
May 2008- I am thankful that Ellie "bubbles" with personality....always!
June 2008- I am thankful that Ellie makes those around her smile. How could you not?
July 2008- I am glad Ellie always finds her "own" way of doing things!
August 2008- I am thankful that she loves to be outdoors just doing kid things!
September 2008- I am thankful that Ellie loves to learn new things. I am thankful for education that allows her the chance to soak up many new things.
October 2008- I am thankful for the unexpected with Ellie. She has taught me to go with the flow as much as I can.
