22 months!

Ellena is 22 months old today! She has been having a rough few days - fussy and unhappy... I'm wondering if her final four molars are coming out... Or maybe she's adjusting to having her brother back at home... Hmmm...

Today was Ellena's first day as an only child, with Evan making his way to California with Grandma. She is slowly adjusting to not having her big brother around. When she woke up, she asked if "Evan eating breakfast?" No, he's on the airplane. Later in the afternoon, the house was pretty quiet and she asked if Evan was sleeping.

2010 SongFest!

Last night was Evan's SongFest at his preschool. So adorable!

Pretty Toes!

I bought some nail polish today and let the kids pick one toe or finger nail for me to paint. They each selected their big toe - go figure. Every time Ellena looks down at her feet, she points and exclaims, "Pretty! Pretty toe!"

Here's a pic of El that I took, and as soon as I snapped the pic, she swatted the camera away and said, "No picture, Momma!"

Here is Ellena getting some snuggles from Poki in my Snuggie. :)

Today Ellena was asking for something and she kept saying it over and over. I couldn't make out what she was saying. It sounded like "Piko Piko Piko." But why would she be asking for our brown tabby when it's clear she wants something to eat.... Oooohhhhhh, cause she's asking for a BROWNIE, which is Piko's nickname!
