-Peppa Pig. This is a British cartoon about a Family of pigs. I am not sure why she loves it so much, but it is a welcomed change after Yo Gabba Gabba for so long. These pigs are a very polite and loving family. Plus it is pretty funny to hear Ellie occasionally say things with a British accent! :)
-beans. One of her favorite foods is beans. Pinto and black beans are what she likes best. She actually likes them more than dessert!
-being girly. Ellie loves feeling pretty. She loves new clothes, shiny shoes, bows, necklaces, bracelets, especially mommy's purse and lip gloss.
-being a little mommy. She loves her baby dolls and doing things just like mommy. She is a great helper and wants to help me unload the dish washer and put clothes in the drier.
Things that are Not her favorite:
-being pestered by Kate
-when the dogs steal her snacks
-all veggies except for peas and beans
-peanut butter sandwiches
When we went for Ellie and Kate's 2 year old check-up our pediatrician was impressed with Ellie's verbal skills and said she was closer to the articulation of a 3 year old. She does a really good job of listening to me and speaks in little sentences all the time. Here are a few of the cute things she is saying:
-Watch the Peppa pig show please. (I hear this one all the time, she brings me the remote when she asks.)
-Mommy/Daddy, where are you? (when one of us goes upstairs)
-Kate is "Tate" and cat is "titty tat"
-ready, steady, go! (this was learned from peppa)
-mmmm, licious (when she thinks something is delicious)
-she can count to 10 but skips 5
-she sings her version of the ABCs
And here are a few pictures from the day my sweet baby girls were born.
