  • She loves puzzles, and she plays with them. When she takes the animal pieces out of the puzzle she walks them all around making the sound they make and then puts them back into the board.
  • She is quite verbal. I can have pretty much any conversation with her that I can have with Timothy, and it's not because he's on her level!
  • She is extremely emotional (hormonal?) Some days she acts like the world is falling apart-I seriously wonder what kind of teenager I'm going to have on my hands. A couple of weeks ago she woke up from her nap in one of these moods. I started to put her sandals on her feet, and she said, "I don't like sandals on my feet!" I told her we had to go pick up Timothy from school, which she usually is excited to do. She said, "I don't want to get Bubba from school." I asked her why not, and as she buried her head into my chest crying she said, "I don't know!"
  • She is full of energy. She runs everywhere, and that's not just when she's trying to keep up with Timothy. She loves swings and slides and climbing.
  • She is so loving and huggy. She'll run from across the room, grab my legs, and say, "Mommy, I love you." It gives me goose bumps.
  • She still loves her "teddies" and "bunnies" and all things stuffed. And she still sucks her thumb when she sleeps (and only when she sleeps). It's so cute, and I'm going to be sad when she gives it up.
  • She'll be getting a big girl bed in the next month (she's been ready, but we're lazy to bring it in from the garage). I'm not worrying about potty training until after our big KS/TX trip in June. She'll still only be 2 1/2, and the last thing I want to worry about is accidents!
  • She still adores her big brother. She repeats everything he says, and even though she doesn't have to be right beside him she always wants to have a good idea of where he is.

Big girl beds! Sigh... We're thinking that through with Ellie now. She's starting to hang from the crib rail (on the inside though). It's only a matter of time before she goes over.

I love hearing what your kids are up to. And seeing those pics is just precious.
