February 26, Friday

Elliott got a visit from Meme, Caleb and Taran today. Taran was a big girl and read The Little Engine that Could!!
Elliott is done sharing her book.
"Oh no! My favorite Alabama cup fell into the tub. I guess I will have to go in after it."
Elliott got to play in Mommy's big tub. She wasn't so sure about the amount of bubbles at first. Daddy does a better job at making bubbles than Mommy does.

February 25, Thursday

Daddy wasn't feeding her fast enough, so she took matters into her own hands. This girl loves her snacks.
We went shopping for a highchair. Elliott loves the baby store. Every time we went down a new aisle she would squeal with delight and shake her fists!!
She likes the idea of her own chair.
We decided to go with the portable booster seat so that we can take it along to Meme's and Nana's. Here she is trying it out and she was real happy about her big girl set-up. The only times she has eaten in the kitchen is when she is sitting on the counter while I am making dinner and feeding her simultaneously.
She makes this face all the time when we feed her. Reminds me of a zombie....Mmmm, brains!!
Patiently waiting for Daddy to give her another bite.
All smiles at Daddy.
Just playing while I make dinner.

Daddy tickles.

One little monkey jumping on the bed...and then goes into her tonic posturing.

February 24, Wednesday

Elliott having lunch with Paul. She was on her best behavior per Daddy's report.When she got home, there was a visit from Popa Joe. She had one bow in her hair already but had found her others and threw a fit until ALL her hairbows were on.
She is throwing a fit because there is still one missing.
All better.

February 23, Tuesday

Nap time

No, my child does not have worms. She just likes to sleep with her booty in the air. I like to think that it is because that diaper is so warm.She is her Mommy's girl after all.

Neither one of us do well when we are woke up from our naps.

Guess what! We are making brownies!!

Elliott mixed the caramel while Mommy mixed the batter.

She wasn't quite sure what to think when I turned the mixer on.

She didn't mind the mixer as long as she was next to the refrigerator.

But Mommy, I want my brownies now!!!

She ate the mess out of some brownie a-la-mode with Daddy.


Story time

I would read a page and then she would read the page.

She is really starting to get into reading.

February 22, Monday

Elliott has developed a bit of a "drinking problem."
She can't seem to get the cans open.
Playing Hide-and-Seek with "Ock."
(Ock we think is her word for Ophelia)

I guess you should have hid better, cat.
(Is is just me, or does Baby O have a defeated look on her face?)
Just like peas and carrots

February 21, Sunday

Don't let her fool you. She looks asleep, right. Wrong. As soon as the flash went off she was smiling. I tink I taw a puddy tat.
Showing off her mad snapping skills.
She keeps moving her tongue all over. It is gross.
She has decided that this is how she is supposed to 'pose' when Mommy takes pictures.
Playing peek-a-boo with Mommy who is sitting on the floor.
We put a headband on her to try to maintain her hair. She decided that it would be fun to wear it '80s style. Unfortunately, things progressed beyond this to....
(And yes, she is waving around a butter knife.)
Gimme a cookie or I will cut you!
She went outside with Daddy to play since it was 70 today!!
She doesn't even remember spring!
Mr AutoBots wanted her to come back outside to play with him.
