My Sweet Kiddos.
Ellie is now well into the three and a half range, though there are many days where I look at her and cannot believe she's not four already. She's tall for her age, and seems so capable. She can dress herself, she gets incredibly mad if you try to help her with her shoes, she can practically make pancakes by herself these days. As evidenced, she loves singing and dancing to the Nth degree and has the most amazing imagination. Lately, she's gone back to being obsessed with playdoh, and mostly cuts out a bunch of shapes for cookies or pancakes. She's just so fun and smart and spirited - she definitely keeps us on our toes. She is already an expert at Angry Birds, and when she kills some pigs, she goes "boosh! Gotcha!" in a way that shows very much what a daddy's girl she is. I can't wait until she learns to read - then the real fun will begin!
They're so hilarious together. Watching them in the bath tub splashing, hearing them make each other laugh, watching them learn how to be siblings. We have a lot of discussions about gentle hands with Adam, and a lot of discussions about how little brothers are always going to knock over block towers with Ellie. I feel so lucky to be their mom, and to watch them grow up together.
