20 months

Ellis turned 20 months on the 20th of May. Just as the jump to the double digit 10 months felt like a big milestone, passing the teen months and adding that 2 in front just makes her feel so much closer to actually being two. Two! I can’t believe it. She is really bursting with personality. Her favorite things this week were jumping in the rain puddles, reading Kikker with Erik, and taking all of her stuffed animals down the makeshift slide we built from a fedex box. She’ll say “step, step, step, ssslllide, weeeee!” as she guides each toy down. I love to catch her playing, dancing and singing when she’s alone. When she’s around friends, things are even better. Today she was surprised with a handmade tutu from Annabelle’s Mom! Ellis and Annabelle (along with about 5 other adorable toddlers) spend their days together and even take a dance class on Mondays. It’s so sweet to see them interact and call each other by name. Now that the weather is warm, but not unbearably so, we spend most of our weekends outdoors, going from park to playground to brunch and finally crashing at home. At that point, we take Ellis’s wise advice and “seat down”.
