Well, it’s been a year! And a great year it’s been. It’s been a humbling journey and I have so much to be thankful for. With it being Ellie’s one year birthday, I couldn’t just post a photo for Kokomi’s Korner.Â So I decided to do a video.Â And not only one… but two!Â One video is a compilation of all her weekly pictures dancing to Michael Jackson’s P.Y.T. I declared this to be her theme song while she was still in the “belly.” The second video is just a compilation of her photos throughout the year set to a sweet Japanese song called, Itoshi No Ellie (Ellie My Love). It probably borders on being a little too long, but I don’t care! Happy Birthday Sweetie!Â I love you!
Ellie shares her birthday with another special baby, Nella Cordelia Hampton. Â Her mom Kelle Hampton has a blog as well.Â Her mission is to help create a culture that accepts and includes the 400,000 Americans with down syndrome, including her daughter Nella.Â I really like her message and hope that Ellie grows up in a world that accepts, embraces, and celebrates everyones uniqueness.Â To learn more, click here.
