April 2017


Ellie and I went to our first story time 
and got Ellie her first library card.
Ellie had a cold and fever for the first weekend of April.
We went to a friend's birthday party at a jumpy place.
We hung out with the Madores.
Daddy started teaching Ellie how to hold a bat.

We celebrated Ellie's 2nd Easter
Did an Easter Egg Hunt at the park and at home
and another one at Auntie Peggy's
Ellie wore her cute little Easter dress

We went to the Street Fair in Monrovia with Grandma and Jenn and got a balloon dog.

We took Ellie to the local airport to watch the planes for the first time, which she loves. We have gone back since and plan to continue to go. 

In April some of Ellie's favorite things to do were

Watching Moana over and over
running in rooms and shutting the doors
laying in bed and cuddling or reading
Doing wooden puzzles
Picking flowers
playing with the hose
helping wipe down the floors

She started saying "no" a lot and very loudly (as well as Mom very loudly)
Says "ball" and water sounds like "why"

Ellie is getting so big and learns new things everyday!!

March 2017

In March Ellie started learning more words.
She started saying "please" and "happy".
She loves to help and throws away the trash and picks up her toys. She helps to put the soap in the dishwasher and start it. Loves to give high fives!
She started putting on her pants by herself and likes to brush her teeth by herself (although we help, of course).

March was when Ellie got scared of taking a bath and it has taken some time to get her back to liking it. She had a very hard time for awhile. She would scream bloody murder and sometimes we would have to take a quick shower. But we have, thankfully, turned a corner on this.

We spent a lot of days in March at the park.
We started a garden.
We went to a few birthday parties and some hikes.
And Ellie got a bigger car seat.

Another fun month!!

February 2017

Ellie turned 1 1/2 in February.
Favorite song is "Wheels on the Bus" and she became obsessed with Hoopla Kids on YouTube. Her favorite is Annie, Ben, and Mango. She loves to see Ben on the bus.

Ellie started to point to things in books when you said the name. She loves her "100 First Words" book.

Ellie carries her little stool around with her and loves to color and play with stickers.

She loves to hear the "Happy Birthday" song. She say's "Happy" by just saying "Ha".

In February we went on some hikes and played a lot. We also celebrated my birthday by going to Solvang. Ellie loved it there. We walked around the town and shops and ate. It was a great way to celebrate my birthday.

Ellie gets cuter and cuter and more fun to be around every day.

We love her so much!
