ella at 21 months

  • She went through a phase where she added "ie" to the end of most words. "No-ie" was particularly cute. One day she said, all in one sentence, that we went to the zoo-ie with Ma Shu-ie and rode the choo-choo-ie.
  • She talks like a pirate. "I write me name." "I need me mommy!"
  • Her Gummy Birds have been life changing. Hallelujah!
  • She loves to dress herself. Most of the time she ends up with her pants inside out and backwards.
  • She loves salt. She asks for it by name and would eat it plain if I'd let her. It's funny because if I had to pick salt or sugar, I'd pick sugar 99/100. Must get it from her dad.
  • She is definitely related to these kiddos, because she asks for her milk "Nice and warm." In fact, most things are "Not hot. Nice and warm." The bath water, her carseat, the temperature outside, her food..."Not hot. Nice and warm." She also likes things, "Not tight. Nice and loose."
  • She loves her Grandmas. Ma Ja, Ma Shu, Ma Ota and Ma Pa, Ma Tweet.
  • We had a little struggle with nursery a few weeks back, when I substituted for a bit. What? Mom can come to nursery too?? Never fear, we are back to "No Mom nursh. Mom take you nursh. Mom go class."

Wow, she's saying a heck of a lot more than Bea is. Henry was really advanced in language at this age but Bea is still just putting two words together, although, she follows complex directions a lot better than Henry did at this age so I know she's smarter than I realize. I can't wait to see you guys!

Have heard the saying that if someone that is not a family member thinks your child is cute then your child is REALLY cute? Ella is REALLY cute! I love checking out your blog and smiling over the darling pictures of Ella. Thanks for sharing your posts!
Love, Heidi S.
