31 months

Happy 31 months Catherine Ellis - in just a few months you will be 3!! How is that possible - seems like just yesterday we brought you home from the hospital. Y'all look how big my little girl looks!!!

November 9, 2011 - 31 months

Last month we celebrated being potty trained and big girl panties - WOO HOO!! You are continuing to do really well with potty training and we don't miss the diapers/pull-ups at ALL! Here are a few wonderful things you are up to these days:
  • Your vocabulary continues to grow - as well as your comprehension - you can state now how you are feeling, what you think someone else is feeling, understand directions well (even if you choose not to follow them!), you also direct people well ( imagine that!) and can communicate most every thing you need to!
  • You are still pretty clumsy - you broke your collarbone this past month and at the ripe age of 2.5 years you've had your first broken bone, we hope it's your last. Your clumsiness is more your lack of attention to where you are headed or interest in things other than walking - like waving to people as you go to and from school.
  • You love the iPhone and iPad - you can work both of them without direction and get to your books, videos, etc. without assistance (we're not sure if this is a good thing or not yet!)
  • You can put your sweater/jacket on and off by yourself
  • You can blow your nose - THANK YOU LORD! I thought this day would never come and it's SO much easier than making you mad as a hornet by suctioning your nose.
  • You have discovered how to get out of your big girl bed - we knew this day would come, but after a few 'big girl' talks with Mommy and Daddy, you now know that you must stay in your bed until one of us comes in to get you (we'll see how long this lasts!).
  • You brush your teeth well; and like to brush them!
  • Your love of books is still enormous - books make you so happy!
  • You take great care of your baby dolls - feed them, change them, wrap them in blankets, stroll them in their stroller - what a good little Mommy you are.
  • You continue to love the outdoors -your sandbox is so much fun and now the fire pit interests you - it seems like so much fun to play in.
  • You say the blessing before dinner at night -your favorite right now is Johnny Appleseed.
  • You say your prayers every night after story time and before turning out the light - it's so sweet to hear you thanking God for your family, baby sister, friends at school, teachers, etc.
" ... my cup runneth over ..." Psalm 23:5
