One of the huge changes has been that we can now have full on conversations with Eli...conversations that make sense! It is so sweet how he expresses himself...asks questions...and makes comments!
While driving in the car:
Eli: "I see horses mama!"
Mom: "Do you see the horses?"
Eli: "I saw a whole bunch of horses mama!"
While playing with Addie(also 2 years old) in our little play kitchen:
Eli: "What are you doing Addie?"
Addie: "I'm doing the dishes Eli."
Eli: "You doing the dishes?"
Addie: "Yes, I'm doing the dishes."
While having a movement (which is a big event):
Eli: "pooping mama....pooping mama...POOPING MAMA!"
Mom: "Mama will hold you."
Eli: "Oh my gosh!" "Oh my gosh!"
Questions, comments, and concerns from Eli:
"You want to play basketball mama?"
"Let's go to Fairbault and get minnows dada!"
"Eli needs a snack."
"Can I have some please?"
A few months ago, Elias started singing....and continues to sing a ton! He sings many songs, like "twinkle, twinkle", "jingle bells", "old mcdonald", many songs from music class...and the list goes on. But I will never forget the day (about 2 months ago) that he sang the ABC's from beginning to end. I cried!
This spring we've continued our ECFE class "toddling toddlers" and we've joined an art class in St. Paul called "Art with Ellen"...he loves it! He absolutely loves going to Addies house three mornings a week...which has been such a blessing! But most of all we've enjoyed being home playing outside, going to the park and having play dates with friends!
I have to end this blog now because I'm running out of time...but I'm looking forward to sharing more as Elias continues to grow. It is my goal to share more often! And, we LOVE reading updates from you all!
HAPPY MAY DAY!!!!!!
