Responses: Here is what relatives and friends are saying.
You are a very special person.
You are the third son of your mother and daddy, and you are our ninth grandchild.
You are the only member of our family with an October birthday and the only one born in 2003.
Your name is special too because Motley was your great grandfather's name, and Ellis was your great great uncle's name.
You have two wonderful brothers, McGuire and Woodson, and you will enjoy playing with them as you grow up together.
We are so proud of you and love you very much.
May God bless you and be with you throughout your life.
With our love,
Grandmother and Granddaddy Folk
I have another name for you "Number 9" how 'bout that!!!
You are so lucky to grow up with 8 more numbers to play with --

Wow, are you gorgeous!
I know your parents and grandparents are very excited to see you!
I feel a special warm spot in my heart for you as my daddy's name was Thomas Motley Plonk, Jr., and I miss him lots.
You are such a doll, and I am so surprised to see you so open-eyed and ready to experience all the joys of this world when you are only one hour old!
Welcome to the family, Precious!
Love, Cousin Mary Louise Plonk Brown
You are a very lucky baby, having been born into the most loving and supportive extended family you could possibly find.
Enjoy the total lack of responsibility of babyhood while it lasts!
And when you're ready to venture out in the world on your own--you know, when you're 3 or so.
I hope you'll come visit us in the beautiful Northwest.
Your some kind of cousin,
Welcome to the world!
You are a handsome baby and you are blessed to have wonderful parents, two big brothers and loving grandparents.
We knew your Mother when she was a baby and a little & big girl.
Congratulations to all...
Dave & Betty Lowe
Congratulations to all.
What a great start at the race of life.
Go for it Ellis.
