I know, it's been forever

Ok, so the intention to blog every week didn't work out so well the past few months. What can I say, life happens when you are bussy making plans. Ellie is doing so well. She is now two and has all the perks that go along with being two. I still wouldn't trade her for bus fare. She is still little for her age, but still as cute as a button. We just cut her hair into a little bob. Ellie of course rocks the style. Her vocabulary is expanding by leaps and bounds with one exception.... instead of being able to say mom, she says bob. My name is now bob in her world. It makes me laugh. Of all the things that a child calls their mom, I am bob. We have a lot of fun around here, but we are definitely running out of space in our living room. I cannot wait until we finish the basement this year, then we can move all of Ellie's toys into the family room that we are building downstairs. Huzzah for a clean living room and Ellie will have her own space too. I think that she will like that as well.
Right now her favorte movies are Snow White and The Princess and the Frog. We watch both everyday sometimes more than once. She also loves going to the park to play and we also got to go for our first bike ride yesterday. We bought one of those bike trailors that hook to the back of our bikes. Ellie of course picked out a Disney Princess helmet.
I guess that is all for now. I will hopefully post more soon.

An Adventerous week

We had an adventerous week this week. It all started out with the misplacement of the tv remote. It is amazing how fast things can disappear and stay that way once Ellie gets invovled. She sure knows how to make things disappear without a trace and when you ask her where they are, she throws her hands up in her "I don't know" pose and says "huh" in her cute high pitched voice.
Ellie is think has some dreams of being a rodeo star. She has been riding her ponies into exhastion. She loves to ride and bounce along with all her energy. It is so funny to watch her. She has such joy and excitement on her face that you can't help but laugh while she is riding.
We have discovered the book If you give a cat a cupcake. It is about giving a cat a cupcake and what will happen. Its like if you give a mouse a cookie. She loves it because the cat in it looks like Diablo and if you ask her who the kitty is, she will tell you it is Diablo.
Elle's vocabulary is getting larger every day. She has so many new words, but of course she has to be stubborn and not talk when you ask her to. She yells at Jake to stop it if he is barking and she yells at the cats to get down if they get on the counters or the table. She is quite the bossy little girl. Ellie is evening telling us what to do part of the time.
She is learning the Disney princesses. She can say Belle and Ariel, but having a hard time with the others. She will point them out to you in pictures and ask for their movies or books to be read to her.
We have discovered the wonderful world of Shrek this week too. She loves to watch them almost as much as Mickey Mouse and she will laugh when the characters are being silly.
I think perhaps the most fun on this adventure week is when she stole my pork lo meing from me and finished eating it. I guess this means that Miss Ellie Belle likes to eat chinese food.
We are having so much fun this week. I hope you all enjoyed reading about her week.
I hope to post some pics of her next week

Better late than never

I know it has been a while since I posted a blog, but life happens when you are busy making plans. Ellie is as spunky as always and had blast with Christmas. She understood the unwrapping presents and went over board with unwrapping everyone's presents. She got some great toys from everyone and the cutest clothes. Elle has added some new words to her vocabulary and is great at telling me no and uh-uh. She makes her daddy go where she wants him too and has a way of making him stay there. I can't believee how much she is growing up. She has a great sense of humorr and is so animated that she is constantly making us all laugh.
We had our first trip to the movies on Monday. It was good for the most part. We had to get up and walk up and down the stairs a bit and then of course we had to run around the back hallway of the theater, but we had a great time eating popcorn and watching Disney's Princess and the Frog. Yes, we did watch most of the movie. I can't wait for the next kids movie to come out so we can go see one again.
I am going to include a bunch of picture in this blog, including Christmas and Ellie's first snow day. I hope you all enjoy and I will post again as soon as I can
