y? cuz we got to.
we had a little party for ellie and it was a real smash hit.
(anything involving this much sugar is automatically a smash hit in my book.)
ellie was so dainty with her cake. she used her fork and took tiny bites of frosting until daddy opened up the cake to show her what was inside. she still stuck to that fork and i'm glad - it kept her from going too nuts. she's been practicing hard with that fork and, by golly, she's going to show off her skills!
we're blessed to have so many people who love our little girl.
we're even more blessed just to have her!
let her eat cake!
p.s. - as this post is hitting the internet, ellie and i are en route to utah. pray for our cranky, tired souls so that we don't die of anxiety/stress/exhaustion/etc mid-flight. also, pray for the other passengers on the plane that they will put up with our shenanigans.
