Ella is TWO!

Yep, my lovely lil daughter made it two trips around the sun! And what did she get for her birthday? Well, aside from the view of the kitchen above, and the scarf I made her, she was the unfortunate recipient of a stomach flu. :( Poor baby! She had to miss her own birthday party because of it! And I myself have been in a bit of a tailspin about it, since those of you who know me well know that I have a stomach flu phobia. It's been firing since this bug has been going around, about a whole month now. I am exhausted and tired of it, and still it shoulders on. I am, however, working very hard to interrupt the phobia and anxiety with many different methods, but if I've been a little lax on making blog posts recently, this is why. I've had to evaluate my entire stress load, and found that, among other things, using the computer generally contributes to my stress level.

Anyhow, congratulations, Ella, I am so in love with you, and happy you joined our family. We watched our birth video all together on the birthday morning, and we all got a little teary (well, not Ella, but she did ask to watch Ella being born again a few days later )
