32 months

Happy 32 months sweet Catherine Ellis! You are moving, shaking and changing the world around you - watch out world!! As you often tell Mommy and Daddy "you so proud of me!" - we are precious child, we are. The Advent season is all about the anticipation and joy of the arrival of baby Jesus .... it is with great anticipation and joy that we also awaited the arrival of our first-born three short years ago. We adore you - you bring so much laughter, joy and awe to this family - our world certainly is forever changed by you!

December 9, 2011 - 32 months

Here are some things you're up to:
  • you are almost completely out of pull-ups - you're dry 5 out of 7 nights and most every time you wake from a nap - we're ready to tell them goodbye and so are you!
  • you talk very well - you're super verbal and know TONS of words. You can now recall words after thinking for a few seconds and complete your sentences correctly without the assistance of an adult.
  • you're a GREAT big sister. Caroline adores you and gets quite the kick out of you. You're loving, kind and compassionate to her.
  • you're quite the artist - you bring home lots of fabulous art work every week from school.
  • you're hair is growing (Daddy is so proud of you!) - you're growing a good looking mullet in the back :)
  • you're wearing 2T clothing, but 3T fits you well
  • Christmas has a whole new meaning this year - you're starting to understand why we celebrate Christmas (thank you for the nativity set, Meme!), some of the fun traditions, a bit about Santa Claus (you still don't like him) and the joy of the season. However, you don't get the presents part - you're not sure about Santa bringing them and the notion of being good or bad.
  • you love your dance class at school and come home with moves and songs that you love to perform - Michael Jackson is a favorite these days. If I can catch this particular performance on camera it'll make my life.
  • you're a great helper to Mommy, Daddy and your teachers.
  • you're a good cook - you helped Mommy make pizza this week and it was super yummy.
  • you still LOVE to read.
  • Cain and Emma are your biggest fans and you love them dearly.
  • you are still sleeping well - 8:00 p.m.-7:30 a.m.
  • you love the blessings for meals - you learn them quickly and demand that we say the blessing before dinner without us reminding you.
  • you say your prayers every night with Daddy - you thank God for lots of wonderful things and ice cream (it's good stuff, y'all!).
Sweet girl - we love you to the moon and back! We're so proud of you; don't you ever forget it!
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
Psalm 107:1
