Ella is 2 and a HALF!

I know this sounds crazy, but this is the first time she has ever had her own bowl of ice cream (or in this case frozen yogurt)!  She hated it- can you tell? ;)

Ella at 2.5...
  • She is hilarious- she constantly makes us laugh.
  • She has gotten over her pushing phase and is actually pretty good at sharing her toys.
  • She loves all her babies and is constantly putting them to sleep by covering them with blankets.
  • She loves being outside and would always prefer to be outside over inside.
  • She loves green beans, hummus, cheese, Gerber mac n cheese with chicken & veggies, anything sweet and milk.
  • She is madly in love with her little brother and cannot get enough of him- he is the only person in the world that she will defer to, share anything with, and do anything for.
  • She shows compassion and concern- she always asks me, "is Everett ok mommy?".
  • Despite being very social and outgoing, she is fearful of things like Santa, Easter Bunny, animals and things she is not familiar with.
  • After months and months of being all about daddy all the time, she is very much in a mommy phase right now.
  • She is smart, sweet, sassy, independent, happy and just wonderful.
A little story for her to remember when she's older...I ran into one of the dads of a boy in her class at school when I was picking her up.  I didn't know him, but he said, "Oh you are Ella's mom?"  "I absolutely LOVE her.  She is the sweetest little girl I've ever met. "  He said that when he's dropping his son off and asks for a hug, his son will sometimes run away, and Ella will come up to him and give him a goodbye hug.  :)
