I reread Elinor’s infant post and so much still holds true for this one. It’s amazing how young we are with our God given little personalities. Elinor is still my eater and she can out eat anyone in the family on a good day. She still takes her time with meals and makes sure her belly is good and full. Her favorite things to eat: an avocado sliced in half with a spoon, chips ( her Dad’s Chedder and SourCream ones), meatballs, yogurt, hummus (hum hum) and cheese. She is also my best sleeper( if there was such a thing in this house). She would make a great farmer ready for bed when the sun goes down and back up with it. She is 90% of the time the first one out of bed and ready for that special alone time with Paige. She usually eats her 1st breakfast with Paige on school days.
She is still very funny and loves to laugh, smile, and make funny faces. She is the boss of her siblings. She interacts with them as if she is the older sister and they shall all listen to her. She also tattle tales on them often. Usually it goes Linkie, linkie this…. Linkie Linkie momma, no jo jo! She is still the most aggressive about fighting and getting what she wants. If she is hungry and I am cooking she will come put her head on my leg and bulldoze me over till I give in and let her make the food herself. She can also grab anything off the counter top faster than lightning and run off. Twice she has grabbed a box full of spaghetti noodles and dumped them everywhere UGH THAT is the WORSE thing to pick up and they are like needles in your feet if you step on one. When they all work together against me they can have those dry noodles all over this house.
She loves to have visitors and hugs on her dogs all of the time. She likes to make sure the dogs don’t get into trouble. She does not like sitting in the back seat of the car because she wants to be close to her momma. She is a little obsessed with her momma. She likes going to school and church but still hesitant when it comes to drop off. Her favorite “toy” is the dvd cases and her mothers swimsuits. I often find her packing up all of the dvd cases or trying to make the Great Wall of China with them. She also strings all of my swimsuits around her neck and walks around in high heels. Its a lovely mess afterwards.
Elinor is the best at picking up and putting things where they go. She can help with many chores around the house like cleaning off tables, windows, changing out laundry. She also attempts to fold the towels it’s pretty cute.
When she gets really excited she does this bounce and says jump but her feet never leave the ground. It’s stinking cute for sure. She has the most beautiful little curls and sweet cheeks. We are very excited that her hair is finally long enough for pony tails.
She is very proud of herself when it comes to using the potty. ( its a working progress training triplets but one day we will get there) she is the most verbal about going potty and can hold it the longest. She can go all night with out wetting her diaper and pee in the am! When she does pee in the potty she likes to shimmy her way through the house with her pants down carrying the potty full of whatever to show everyone. Once Lincoln was laying on the ground and she went to show him dumping the full pot on his head. That did not make Lincoln happy.
She talks all of the time. Out of the three she still uses some words I don’t understand when talking to her siblings. Some of my favorite funny things she says is : Tank Tank ( thank you), Milp ( milk), momma/ daddy / paigy this.. you this, Hold you ( hold me).
These are some of her favorite things:
Book: Let’s Go to School flap book, Gruffalo
Song: Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes and Wheels on the Bus
Color : Blue everything is blue to her.
Activity : Play doh and dancing
Place to go: Chick Fila and Family houses
Best time of the day: Early Morning and after every meal
Show to watch: Pooh, Gruffalo, Guy ( Which is Thomas the Train when the train conductor comes on…. spent many nights fast forwarding and rewinding to watch just the guy part.)
