Ellie: Home 6 months & 2 1/2 years old

Wow! It is hard to believe that last Monday, March 16, we celebrated our 6 month anniversary since Ellie's Gotcha Day. Then on Friday the 20th, Ellie turned 2 and a half years old! Time sure has flown by in our house these last 6 months. Ellie is doing very well for which we are so thankful. Lilly and Ellie are also doing beautifully on most days now which is a huge blessing. Just today (when I did not have a camera close at hand), the two little girls were sitting on the sofa just having the best time. They were giggling, hugging, and just enjoying each other. It was such a wonderful moment to take in as their mother. Enjoy the pictures!

Couldn't resist capturing these cute toes. Yes, they belong to Ellie since our family did "grow by (her) two feet" this year!

This picture definitely requires a caption! Shelby and Katie will, from time to time, have "Spa Night" or offer massages for a quarter or so- very reasonable, don't you think? Well, on this night, the older girls were giving massages and look who had to copy their older sisters! It was hysterical!

Dress up time with the boys. Fulton is obviously a knight, but I'm not really sure who Ethan and Ellie are suppossed to be. Quite an assortment of accessories the two of them are sporting!
