Two years ago Sunday, our littlest member of the family landed in Nashville to be welcomed home by her big brother, her daddy, a MeeMee, a DeeDee and a Nana and many, many other friends and family.
I still remember it like it happened last week.
Sunday we celebrated our family's completion by going out to eat at Mimi's Cafe and then taking a trip to Toys R Us for a special toy -- which ended up being a Disney Princess CD player (the kind that plays those molded plastic cds). Not surprising that the wee one who started out as "The Princess" was celebrated with a GiGi's cupcake that is billed as "The Princess" and then got a Princess CD player. NeeMee and DeeDee got her a bowling set which she has worn us out with asking us to set it up and play with her.
I could wax nostalgic for hours upon end about how wonderful she is, but her head is already big enough! Suffice it to say God could not have picked a more perfect fit for our family and we are all thankful every day for her and Joshua.
Here are a few photos from Ellie's special day.

We were also celebrating my daddy's birthday, so we had twice the reason for celebration:

Josh was taking pictures by this time. Thie one is a little blurry, but Ellie's expression is so sweet, I had to share it.
And how about this sweet one of Ellie and her DeeDee:
