Elise: Two & A Half

Dear Elise,

While we were off on our Spring Break trip, you celebrated your half birthday! You are 2 1/2 years old now. Here is what you are up to:

•Eating: Snacks! You are a grazer and prefer to eat little nibbles all day rather than eating big meals. You are big on "smoovies" right now, but no "babanas," please...

•Sleeping: You are a good sleeper, but you like routine at sleep time - a couple books, a drink of water, fuzzy socks, and then covers. And of course, you want to be surrounded by your stuffed friends.

•Wearing: You weigh about 27lbs. and wear mostly 2T clothing, with a few 3T shirts mixed in (you are TALL!). Most days you want to wear silly socks and even though they rarely match your outfits, we have just given up that battle and let you.

•Talking: Non-stop, 24/7...sometimes even in your sleep!

•What You Love: Music and dancing, Piper - she is your best friend, Frozen, Beauty and the Beast, preschool and Ms. Sallie and Ms. Sherry, Taco Tuesday, your baby (and you won't name her, one is baby, the other is girl...), trips to the park, helping in the kitchen, coloring, using your Doc McStuffins kit to give us checkups, watching videos and looking at pictures of yourself, bossing the dog around, ice cream, your friends at church, blowing bubbles, telling us secrets, singing songs and giving piano concerts (we get a daily dose of the Doxology or "Praise God" as you call it), painting your fingernails and toenails, lipgloss (I let you have a little of mine and a little hairspray on Sundays for church and you think you are big stuff), surprises, and "twootsies" (Tootsie rolls).

•What We Love: ALL OF YOU! You have become so animated and are a joy to be around (even if there is a little drama and 2 year old whining in there!).

You are our most favorite girl!

Mommy (and Daddy!)
