Life is moving along way too quickly. Today marks two years since Elise entered this world and completed our family. Over the past year we have watched this girl blossom. Her vibrant personality has really come into focus. Elise is intelligent, hilarious, and cool. She seems to be a bit of an introvert, but once you crack this girl open you will be blessed with humor and affection. She has such a fun loving spirit, brave and willing to give most things a try. She is independent and strong willed, traits that will serve her well throughout her life.
This girl is a mix of brave, she'll always jump off of whatever, and fearful, bugs and shadows! She has the most expressive face on the planet, I am sure. She loves rainbows and pink and her big sister (parroting most everything that Cordelia does). She is creative and driven, this sweet daughter of ours. She adores her grandparents, uncles, aunts, parents, animals, friends---this girl has a big heart!
I cannot believe that it has been two years (almost to the minute as I am typing) that we met her for the first time. I will never forget meeting my baby girl, furious with the indignity of birth. What a day that was, full of love. Read about her birth, first year and birthday, etc. by clicking the links.
Join me as I look back over this past year with our spirited little lady.
July 2014, today
Happy birthday Elise! You are so very loved.
