Mine is. In fact, she is number one for girls. This is her father's fault, I originally wanted to name her Emma.

Did you see this yet?

The company School Stickers recently conducted their annual survey to determine the naughtiest and nicest children's names for 2014, and Ella tops the naughty girls list, and Joseph is king of the naughty boys. See the complete list here.

My family thinks this is hilarious that Ella is number one on the list. My reaction? "Not my sweet little Ella, she is an angel!" Then I looked at some photographic proof. Here is her behavior for the first 2 days of December.

She is the reason we now have a gate surrounding our tree...

And...she destroyed the paper and thought it was HILARIOUS.

Way to prove the survey wrong my darling.

Now, I chalk this up to typical one year old behavior, and it sure does make me laugh and smile. Most of the time. Maybe it is a good thing that we have implemented the "Elf on a Shelf" this year, so that next year the elf's power to make a child behave will actually be beneficial?

Let me just state one last time for the record: My Ella is an angel. Seriously. How can you be mad at a sweet face like this?

Or a face that takes a selfie like this?
