Christmas card brag... day 1, Ella


Since I never got our little Christmas card out I thought this would be a good place to do a little write-up on the family. Today will be all about Ella.
To put Ella into words... this may be hard. 
Our little sweet baby has become our feisty, independent toddler. She will be 2 on the 23rd of this month and acts every bit of it. Even amidst  the power struggles and cleaning of crayon marks all over the place she is still our little darling. She is the opitomy of loving. Giving hugs to all who she comes in contact with. She comes up to us about 20 times a day, smiles, and gives us the biggest hugs. She has the power to melt people everywhere. Also she is as social as a teenager. She immediately commands all the attention in a room by making silly faces, saying funny things or doing a dance. Ella still has quite the vocabulary and continues to amaze people at the many things she knows and says, its so much fun to watch these stages in their lives. Earlier in the year as we were teaching Luke all of his letters and letter sounds somewhere along the way Ella picked them all up to. Its so funny to hear her sing them all... what a surprise that one was. Im loving this second child thing. Its so much less work and stress, they just pick up so much from the first. It makes my job a lot easier. Miss Ella has even been trying to potty train herself. Going poop and potty like a big girl. I know she is showing me that she is ready to kick those diapers but Mom is just not on board yet. I am still recovering from the 4 months of potty-training her Brother. Also she has started Gymnastics, which she loves! She really enjoys swinging on the bars and walking like a pro on the balance beam. Plus there is lots of time to jump there, something she was doing at 12 months old and has never stopped. Ella jumps all day long as though she is on a trampoline, its actually quite funny to watch.
So thats a bit on my Ella. I am obsessed with her and want to be around he all day long. She makes the days bright and joyful. Fun and bouncy. Exciting and sweet. I love this silly little princess.

Oh my goodness, I can hardly stand it. I just want to hug and squeeze that little girl. She seems so grown up. What will she be like in 9 months? Let he know her Grammie loves her.
