The days leading up to Elle's big arrival are getting closer!
And my to-do lists are finally getting smaller.
At the top of my list is Emma and her birthday.
My girl...my big girl.
She is my right hand man around the house.
The one who chips in with a cheerful attitude to help with her brothers.
The one who gets overlooked at times because she's so capable of doing everything herself.
I adore her.
It was so important to me that we had a special day before Elle was born to celebrate Emma.
A day to make her feel special and important.
And a day to let her know that she's the best big sister ever!
On Sunday we picked up my sister Bekka and headed to the American Girl store in Dallas.
We had been once before for her third birthday but this trip was the best!
She was old enough to really appreciate how girly and special the day was!
We shopped, got her doll's ears pierced, made a few purchases
and then enjoyed lunch at the Bistro that's located in the store.
Happy Early Birthday and Big Sister Day to my sweet Emma Kate!
*I've had a few people ask...
The baby's name is Eloise Claire.
But sometimes we'll call her Elle (pronounced Ellie... just spelled differently).
