Our week did slow down, thank goodness, but not after a trip to the eye doctor to remove some glitter from my eyelid that was driving me crazy and a trip to E's doctor for her early 18-month checkup. Tonight we had our 2nd annual Ella, MK, and Ellery Christmas get together. The girls had a great time being together and even exchanged gifts. It is only fitting that Ellery's favorite word right now is "Open".
They loved playing with the play-do and banging on the garage. It is a huge step from chewing on teethers and hanging out in the exersaucer. Ellery especially loved giving Ella the baby doll pacifier, which her parents thoroughly appreciated. Ella has never been a pacifier girl and all of a sudden decided she might trade in her thumb for one.
Speaking of pacifiers, the nurse today said it needs to "get lost" no later than 2! I am not sure how that is going to fly around our house sense our girl is the paci and lovey queen. Other than that, she was declared a healthy little girl tipping the scales at 26 pounds, 10 ounces and remaining around the 85th percentile for height. It is hard to believe that we have an 18 month old already but we sure are enjoying it!
Everyone have a wonderful weekend!
