18 months old

Where does time go? We just wish we could hit the pause button and slow Ella down! She is changing and growing everyday. It seems like I used to know how many weeks and days old she was and now I have to stop and think about it when someone asks me how old she is. We had a long weekend together because of the "snow day" and Mardi Gras holidays and it was so nice. It was nice to wake up, walk upstairs and get her out of her bed, and bring her down and snuggle without having to rush to get to school! We were at Target last week and the lady in front of us had a tiny little baby in a carrier and Ella pointed to him and said,"BABY!" I wanted to say,"No, you are my baby, kiddo! Stop growing so fast!" She is a character and we laugh at her nonstop.... She is very strong willed (I have no idea where she gets it from) and she has been testing us lately.....A LOT! I will pop her when she really needs it but of course Cameron won't. She recently started hitting us or the dogs when she gets excited so I thought I would give "Time Out" a shot....I read all about it and yesterday morning she kept easing up the stairs. I told her no three times and asked her in my sternest voice to come down right now....Well, she kept on creeping up.... I finally had enough and started up the stairs towards her. She grinned from ear to ear and said,"Hey mama!" I told her if she didn't come down she would have to go to time out. She looked at me like I had lost my mind. She ended up sitting in time out on the rug in front of the door and took it like a champ....she cried and whined for 60 seconds but then it was over. The funny thing is that I am pretty sure she has been in time out somewhere before, like, oh say...daycare....Here are a few pics of my 1 and a half year old....I don't like the way that sounds :)
