At this rate our little girl is going to be 2 in no time! The days are just flying by. Ellery turned 19 months today and is talking up a storm. She can imitate most words we give her these days. She has learned her name probably because her little friends have begun saying it. It sounds a lot like, "Ewrey"! She also knows our dogs name, Colby.
She has started picking out her clothes which is always funny and is very particular about the shoes she is wearing. Of course, anything I suggest is an automatic "No!" She seems happiest outside or in the car on the go. Many times she will start whining the minute we turn the corner onto our street. She adores the park and her new climbing skills. Rocks are some of her favorite toys. You would think maybe she is a tomboy BUT the girl can't stand messes or when things are out of place. Getting dirty is not her idea of a good time. I have to remind her over and over that messes are okay! She also loves her dolls and has picked out the one that laughs to sleep with at night. She feeds them their juice and milk and tucks them in at night, making sure they have their pacifier. You can find her many times playing in my jewelry and trying on multiple bracelets and necklaces. If at any time she sees a star (on her pajamas, in a book...anywhere) she busts out with the words to "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star". She also wants to watch certain parts of videos over and over and it is always the singing parts. A certain Wiggles song plays in my head over and over and over.
This is just a glimpse into our little 19 month-old. It is amazing to watch her personality develop more each month of her life. I am in awe that I get to be her mother!
