Life Lately


It's been months since I've posted on here and really I just forget about it, but people keep asking for pics of Elodie, so here we go!

Elodie's cousin Caden came to visit and omg are they cute together.  I can't wait to see how their relationship develops over the years.  They both enjoyed going over to the piano and playing together.  Their combined cuteness is just too much.
 As her mom, it's hard not to gush about Elodie's personality, intelligence, and beauty growing so much with every day. She loves to walk all over the place but she's deliberate and careful in her movements; so far she's not a risk taker that runs around and falls a lot. She also loves to laugh at everything, repeat every word she can, read book after book, and kiss everything she cares about.  The kisses are so good, too. It's like every kiss gives you the feeling you get from your very first kiss and she gives them all day every day. They are addictive.
 Elodie calls all dogs "Ba" (because our dog's are Belle and Bella). We think she thought the goats were dogs :)
^^ This is a pic Jenn took on an early morning hike we did one Saturday. A new favorite.^^

We take E with us to do whatever we are doing. She's usually pretty cool and will eat whatever we eat and just hang out with our friends. Although since she's started walking, she likes to get down and cause trouble.  
 So Elodie turned 1 in December, and if I had to sum up her one-year-old self, I'd say that she's an (almost) always happy baby who loves to read, laugh, kiss, and talk. 

She says mama, dada, ba (belle/bella/dog), book, Lydia (her doll), blue, more, and boob. That's a lot of words for a 14 month old!

Sometimes when it's too quiet and I sneak into the room to check on her, she'll be sitting with a pile of books slowly reading each one. We hope her love of reading stays.
 Oh and we got a lot of snow recently :) It's the most I've ever seen - never thought we'd get more than we did in 2010, but we did! The girls didn't really even try to play in it. They went out once and then said nope and stuck to the dug out paths. We got over 25 inches and had a lot of fun playing in it for days instead of going to work.
 Poor Bella has had a hard transition over the past year. However, she seems to have found a new favorite lounging spot where she collects dropped or THROWN bites of food three times a day. It's a small consolation for her demotion, and let's be honest, she still gets tons of love.
