Ella And Her Daddy

Ella and her daddy have such a sweet bond. She literally melts his heart! I won't lie, he had a hard time when we first got her prenatal diagnosis and really wasn't sure what to expect when she was born. But sure enough, it didn't take long after her birth for him to realize that she was so easy to love and he bacame as attached to her as he is to his other two daughters. Obviously, Ella has been through a lot more that Abbey and Emma. She spent 8 days in the NICU, has had to have blood drawn regularly, had three bone marrow biopsies as well as many other follow up check-ups. He CAN NOT stand to hear her cry!! Unfortunately he works a lot of hours which include nights and weekends so he misses out on a lot of the fun things we do but I think his favorite thing to do is to just sit on the couch with her in his arms and watch TV. Sometimes she will just sit with him for an hour and he just loves it!! So here are a bunch of pictures of Ella with her daddy during the first 19 months of her life.....so sweet!!!
