One and a Half

Sweet Ella,
You are a spunky toddler full of life. We love how curious you are and how you get excited about the smallest things. Your vocabulary has expanded so much this month and you are talking in phrases. You amaze us everyday with new words and sounds. It has been a joy to watch! You received a developmental "report card" at school and it showed that you are exceeding expectations in all areas, especially in the verbal area! Haha! That doesn't surprise us! Your teachers are amazed that you know every child's name and call them by their name. We have also been told that you apparently have your own "fan club" at school where other kids follow you around.

Our FAVORITE thing you say is "I gonna getchu." You say this when you want us to chase you and it is hilarious listening to you repeat this phrase over and over again.

Your favorite foods are: rice, green beans, peas, corn, and vanilla yogurt.

You are now taking your naps on a cot at school. This is a transition they use to get you ready for the next classroom. They have told us that you are doing wonderful and are staying on the cot for naptime. In fact, you are actually taking longer naps right now!

One challenge we are facing right now is teaching you NOT to hit. You will hit us when you don't get your way and sometimes just to be funny. We are hoping that consistent discipline will help break this bad behavior.

Some of your favorite activities are: playing outside, bubbles, books, and rolling around on beds.
