four years ago today

Our dear second daughter was born in Katy, Texas at 3:31 p.m.  She was our ‘hefty’ girl at 7 lbs. 15 oz.  She looked just like Rilyn (or so we thought!), but was a lot calmer than her older sister, (or maybe we were a lot calmer since we just had done this 19 months before…we were even in the same exact hospital room where Rilyn was born!)  Four years ago, the night before we were induced, we watched on the hospital room TV t.u. win the national championship and I’m afraid, this week, they might do it again!  Four years ago today, our lives were forever enriched by a silly, fun-loving, squirmy, emotional, loving, sharing, cuddly girl who brings us so much JOY every day!

Happy 4th Birthday dear Ella!
