    Default ella's 1 year birthday today!!! :)

    today is ella's bday and we are having a small family gathering for her tomorrow. she is bf almost exclusively and she still feels just like my little baby doll, only now she does a lot of big girl things. i never would have thought we'd survive bf with her allergies this long with no sign of stopping, but we are really doing pretty well considering.
    thank you all for all of your loving support and kindness during this past year.

    thank you, shannon. my dear friend lost her full term baby girl on wednesday and i just found out through an email that shared no details except for her postmortem pictures. i had just talked to her last week and she was doing great.
    i feel very blessed and silly for moaning about food so much. i am so grateful for ella!
