Eating, drinking and playing!

First time in a ball pit --- she loved it!

I'm growing up!

Ellie's Dislikes:

Two words:
Not. Good.

Eli and Ellie: A Comparison


At this age they both:


Love baths.
Love to chew on everything.
Love to be outside
Did NOT want mommy to leave them
Using the walker -- (although, Eli was a pro!)
Like to feed themselves

They are different:

Eli was sleeping THROUGH THE NIGHT!!!  Oh, how I wish!!

Eli was doing more and I think this is b/c he got ALL of the attention!  He used a spoon and could sign more!  I have hardly begun sign language with Ellie.  :(

Eli was much, much chubbier! 

Eli liked to eat "foods" more.

What I've learned...

Having children in a warmer climate must just be easier -- kids are happier outside!  Shall we move?

I am Extremely Blessed because...

My other BFF got to meet sweet Ellie this month!
