Ella Renae is ten years old. She’s 120 months old. She’s 3,650 days old. She’s 87,600 hours old. Our sweet Ella then Bun is TEN YEARS OLD!!! It is just hard to believe as our day to day is fairly routine with Ella, which in her case, is just great news. Over the last couple years Ella has made incredible progress. We still have challenges with feeding (she’s still using a g-tube), diapers are still a thing (oye), and most GI sicknesses that would keep a normal kid simply home from school usually puts us in the hospital (only once in the last couple years!!).

She also has experienced typical kiddo growing pains…like a broken elbow!

Words can’t fully express how far she’s come, so I’m hoping the pictures and videos shared below do a little bit of justice.

Thanks to all of you for your steadfast prayers and support during Ella’s early years. A special thanks to the nurses that meant so much to us during our time in the hospital, to all the wonderful therapists that have helped Ella grow, and an extra special thanks to Dr. Kays for saving this sweet girls life. As I often say, “I love her so much it hurts”.

Check out all the photos and videos here.
