Happy Birthday Ella

I used to be afraid that we were going to forget our little girl. Forget the things that she did, the way she smelled, her cute little face. Forget those moments when we finally became parents to a sweet baby girl.

But, I now believe that we won’t forget those memories of Ella and that they aren’t going to fade away. I think that they are all we have…83 short days. So we cherished every moment, every memory because we truly didn’t know how long we would have with our baby girl.

Her life will always be remembered within us. Every time we held her little fingers, every time she peaked out at us, every time she would squint her eyes shut to tell us she was mad, every time we rubbed her little head or kissed her little toes, every time we got to hold her in our arms, every time we were together as a family. We won’t forget those moments…they now make up who we are and will be part of us forever until we get to see her again someday to make new memories in heaven. Our baby was with us just for a moment but changed our family forever.


Your life was a blessing,
Your memory a treasure...
You are loved beyond words
and missed beyond measure.
-Unknown

Happy birthday sweet baby girl! We miss you every day and love you always.
