So, my baby is two.
There, I said it.
Ellie is like space mountain fast going through her life, right in front of my eyes.
This post is just an outrageous amount of photos (and a few videos) of her over the last couple of months, a photo-montage without the music, if you will. However, if you put Bon Iver on Pandora, it might be super cute.
Here is our first beach trip. I took the kids alone.
She enjoys being my coffee date when the twins are at preschool.
She loves to say the following all the time:
“Mama, I’m SUPER hungry.”
“Mama, I’m SUPER tired.”
“Mama, I’m SUPER ______ (fill in the blank)”
Ellie is always SUPER something, because not only is it her favorite adjective, it is her only adjective;-) At first I would get concerned, like oh no, she is SUPER whatever it was, and I’d get right to action on whatever it was she needed. Now I know a little better. She also loves to yell, “NO THANK YOU!” if she is less than pleased with the given situation. Ahhh, the two’s~
My all time favorite Ellie noise that I cannot replicate – it’s magical.
This is what she does EVERY time I make a smoothie. She yells at the top of her lungs, “SMOOOOOMEEEEEE” then “NOISE!!!” “Headphones!” Then she has both of her siblings trained to go into the pantry and get these for her, and put them on her ears…
When she turned two earlier this month, we celebrated and took her to the beach. That was her party. It was totally fun, and very exhausting, because the beach isn’t exactly next door – but my family is an adventurous bunch, so I am blessed.
Ellie loves her gramma Lyn.
Those little feet
such tiny legs
she will go so far someday
but for now she is still my big girl in her tiny self.
a brother is one of the best gifts in this life. Everyone should have at least one brother.
such a fun day.
And now… professional photo time! A few weeks ago, we had these taken. One of my former 8th grade students took them. (http://www.dannymontemayor.com/ ) He is so great with kids, that when they asked him to stay and watch Micky Mouse Clubhouse, he agreed! Nicest grown-up move ever. Notice how Ellie makes herself RIGHT at home next to Danny;-)
Here we are around 8:15 in the morning, it’s not even 50 degrees outside… I was willing to make the sacrifice for the early morning shadow light. Ellie complained zero times about being cold. I think the kids were too distracted by the fun to even consider it was freezing.
this girl loves her daddy.
and while Davin and I were taking these…
Ellie was doing this…
