My baby girl is 5!!!
What?? I told her to stop growing up....she forcefully said, "NO!"
Ella is an amazing gal. She LOVES school, LOVES her friends, LOVES playing "The Lion King" with all her lions, LOVES elephants, LOVES to eat junky, "unhealthy" (as she calls it) cereal when allowed, LOVES her family, and LOVES being 5.
We started off her birthday weekend with a few treats that she was so excited about. She came home from school one day earlier in the month and said, "Mom, I know what I want for my birthday.I want to get my haircut and my ears pierced." Say what?? I was ok with it, but we had to talk daddy into both....luckily we did.
First, it was to get her ears pierced.
After (I think...I can barely see if there are earrings there). It was the EASIEST thing ever. I was surprised by how well Ella did and how simple and harmless it all looked. She now has a pair of pretty purple studs in her ears and is taking very good care of them.
After the ear-piercing event, Travis and I surprised her and took her to see The Lion King in 3D. What fun!
jonah was so happy it wasn't him getting his hair cut. He has already had more haircuts than his sister and he is not a fan.
Let the cutting begin...we were all a little nervous but once that first chop happened, and there was no turning back, we all relaxed.
So freakin cute. I loved it, Travis loved it, Ella was in shock and it took her a little while to love it. After everyone else saw it and loved it, she felt better.
Our pretty birthday girl.
I started this last year and hope to keep going with it throughout the years. I love seeing the changes as she gets older.
