It was a summer in the making, but we finally finished Ella's new room. It's very "grown up." Lacking pink and frills, it suits a growing girl who is exploring her individuality. This also means she wants to pick out her own clothes, fights a hairbow and thinks smocked dresses are "baby dresses." Oh, I hate it! It is so hard watching her grow up. But she is such a very beautiful little girl. I love her so much!
