remembering her birth day

guess who is turning 2 in about 3 days? thats right! my little baby girl...wahhh! keeping that baby fever at bay is a full time job alongside this little spunky girl. 
preparations are ongoing this week so we can celebrate her. the only girl. i swore up and down i wouldn't go girl crazy when she was born...boy, what a big fat lie that was! 
first, it was the headbands...then, it was the pink & gold birthday...and then it's the baby dolls, the princesses, and the dresses. it goes on and on. 
and you know what? 
i'm all for it.
because after so many years of thomas the train, toy story, skylanders, pokemon & power rangers,'s nice to have a change. 
and so her story began like this....
and this is what she's become...
her birth story was written and captured as best as it could have...and i'm SO in love with looking back at her pictures. her birth was truly perfect (i can say that, because the last two previous births, were SO not perfect despite two beautiful boys). 
if you remember from the post, i gave the boys some kodak cameras to take pictures as they pleased. and i realized that i never posted the images they captured. from about 50 images, only 4 good ones came out. 
even though the lighting was perfect, the cameras were either damaged or are the film was SO bad inside that they were almost all black & grainy. 
below, are 3 images that were captured with the disposable kodak cameras :) Enjoy!
on the 8th (really today, the 5th), we will celebrate her life. her spunk. every single smile she gives & every sassy molecule that emits from her ridiculously beautiful face. don't tell me that's not possible, because it totally is. 
she's growing up, good heavens. and i love her more than i ever thought i could possibly love someone. 
happy birthday, elena. daddy & mommy (and lots more people) love you.
