Let me start by saying that in just a few weeks Ellie will be TWO. So I am a little behind on this post but want to capture her at 18 months.
Thinking back to this summer when E was 18 months...such a little adventurer. Her personality as a little trickster with a sly smile emerged. What I believe will become a very dry sarcastic sense of humor has started to show and she can melt your heart with one look. She is just the cutest! She also started to find her voice and she is pretty stinkin smart too. She has this look she gives when she fully understands you but has no intention of doing what you ask. I can tell she is going to be her own brand of trouble pretty soon.
33 inches tall
Running around non-stop
Getting into EVERYTHING
Reading her Object books
Hanging on everything Molly does
Wrestling with Dad
Being told No
Being stuck in the car for long periods of time
Not being able to do something her sister can
Swimming on her own with puddle jumper
- Vocabulary really picked up and she can say lots of words
- Really enjoys saying the names of all of our friends (Laura, JJ, Amy, Cal-Cal etc.)
Ellie is really a pretty good eater. She doesn't explore too much when it comes to all new foods but if you give her something she likes she will chow it down. Refried beans are no match for her....obsessed! She only has milk at bedtime now.
Continues to be a really good sleeper. We have not really had any trouble with sleeping with her ever. So lucky! She goes to bed at 8pm, wakes up around 7:30 or so and then takes a nap around 1.
What a FUN summer we had with you and your sister! We are so blessed to have you in our family Ellie, we love you so much! xoxoxo
