Ella was born on November 28, 2005. She is currently the only girl out of eight nieces and nephews, all of who are shown in this video. November is a big month for her as we usually celebrate her birthday three different times. In this video, you’ll see that we celebrated her birthday with her friends, one time with Joel’s family, and once with just the Fun House. Ella is getting taller every day as you can see by those long legs in the video.
At this point in February, it seems like she has lost more teeth than she has left in her mouth with new loose teeth popping up every day. She is great big sister. I didn’t realize until I viewed the film of her birthday that, at one point, she stopped and gave Seth a kiss and a hug right in the middle of one of the fun activities all the kids were doing at the gym. I think this shows a lot about who God is shaping her to be. She is a very confident girl, but she does a pretty good job looking out for others. We are so blessed to have her as our first born. We can’t wait to see how God will use her for His purposes in the future. Enjoy the video and say a prayer for Ella as you do.
