As mentioned in the previous post, Ellie LOVES getting up on the chair and watching and/or helping me cook or bake. She is very careful and doesn't touch stuff when I ask her too but she also loves to "try it." I asked James to take these pictures so I could remember this cute little time.
She enjoys helping me with the dryer whether that's putting the clothes in or taking them out.
When I set the dough on the table to roll out Ellie said, "Play-doh?" Yes but no. Haha once she realized they were cookies and she could eat this dough, she couldn't stop! We use cookie cutters with her play-doh a lot but since this dough was dry it was kind of frustrating letting her help too much because the cut out would break easily if she tried to lift it on the plan. In the end it all worked out. She got to frost, decorate and eat them!
On Valentine's morning James made breakfast with Ellie and when I came out there were some goodies on the table already so I added the ones I got to it.
I got this Frozen story set for Ellie a long time ago but never gave it to her so Valentine's Day seemed like a perfect day for it. She literally played with it all day and that's not an exaggeration! She still loves it and plays with it at least once a day, at least!
I got a lotion I asked for and James got the same chocolates I get every year, it's tradition.
I wanted to get a family picture so I set up the tripod out back and ran back and for a few times...
...Ellie clearly liked the idea because James caught her doing this.
Again with that skirt. And notice the gloves. Those are Elsa gloves. And the shoes. It's not cold she just loves them and they're easy for her to put on. She carries them over the wall or door and braces herself against the wall or door and sticks her foot in them and pushes down. I have since had to put the boots up so she stops choosing those ones. The outfit of choice was picture worthy!
Ellie loves to play outside. She always wants to go outside and wants me to play with her. She also loves to swing aka "spin." Something I wanted to remember so I also took some pictures. After I wind the swing up I say, "Ready, set..." she used to say "go" but I was joking around once and said "Baby GoGo" which is a character from Yo Gabba Gabba so now she says Baby GoGo or some other random goofy thing before I let the spinning unwind. She thinks she's hysterical.
