33 Months

We are closing in on 3 years old...and too fast! Catherine Ellis is 33 months old today - and a HOT mess! She is so much fun! We've certainly got our hands full with this child, but we wouldn't have it any other way! She is absorbing and learning so much - she constantly amazes us with the pure love and compassion she shows to her little sister daily and the spark she brings to our family. There is truly never a dull moment with Catherine Ellis!

January 9, 2012 - 33 months

Here are some of the great things you're up to at 33 months:
  • you're a drama queen - in many good ways! You love to dance, charm, socialize - all the good things that come with being a little dramatic. And then there is the flip side - your emotions sometimes get the best of your little self. All this to say, there is never a dull moment with you precious child!
  • you count with ease to 15
  • know your ABC's - the only part that you get a tad bit confused on is the ending - you will say QRS - QRS and forget TUV.
  • you sleep well - bedtime is 8:00 p.m. and you are typically up between 7:00-7:30 a.m.
  • you are a creature of habit and you don't like straying from what you know.
  • you LOVE your sister - we're SO proud of how you've embraced her. What an ally she has in you big girl!
  • you like to color, write, draw - anything artsy and crafty. You have your fabulous teachers to thank for this.
  • your napping at school the past month has been hit or miss. At home you will still average about 2 hours - some days we are lucky to get an hour though. We sure are going to miss nap time in a few years!
  • you like to eat most foods - not too picky. Typical foods that you like: avocado, cheese, carrots, pizza, salad, corn, chicken nuggets, french fries, pancakes, Cheerios, fruit, mashed potatoes.
  • you really dislike time out - but it seems to be effective for discipline for now.
  • you LOVE LOVE LOVE to play with the iPad or iPhone - it's scary how well you know how to work them.
  • you sing every day - you love to sing and often if you're up before your sister you'll run in and sing Rise and Shine and Give God Your Glory Glory to her - she thinks this is funny.
  • you say your prayers at night before bed - you're still saying the blessing "God is great, God is good, let us thank him for our food", but hey, you've got to start somewhere.
  • you are polite - we're still working on when to say ma'am and sir, but you're getting there.
  • you are a sponge, it only takes once for you to hear or see something and you've committed it to memory.
  • you love most everyone - you hug every classmate every morning and afternoon before you leave, your teachers, Mommy's co-workers - what a sweet, sweet child.
  • your love of books still exists - we hope it always does!
  • you like to cook and help Mommy in the kitchen. Over the holidays you made homemade mac and cheese with Aunt B and it was yummy!
  • you do not like Santa and as far as you're concerned you don't ever want him to come to your house - you say the reason you don't like him is 'his long white beard'.
  • you're memorized the praise CD Coco made us - all 18 songs. We listen to it every time we get in the car. Daddy says we praise him out of the car:)
(the National Championship Game was also the 9th -
just supporting Daddy's team!)

Sweet C was supportive too!

In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God ...
