24 Months = 2 Years

Ellington, you are now TWO YEARS OLD!  Wow!!!  We can't believe you've been in our lives for two years and we also can't imagine our lives without you.  You are a precious little girl and fill our lives with joy!!!

Let's see....what are you up to at 2 years old?
  • You wear size 24 months or 2T
  • You weigh 28 lbs (75th percentile) and you are 34 inches tall (50th percentile)
  • You take an afternoon nap that lasts anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half usually.  You occasionally nap for 2 hours, but it is rare 
  • You go to school M-W mornings and LOVE it.  You love your teachers, Mrs. Tiffany and Mrs. Amy.  You say they are your best friends
  • You still LOVE any kind of carbohydrate!  
  • Your favorite fruits are mandarin oranges, bananas, and apples
  • You usually go to bed about 7:30 pm and sleep until I wake you up at 7 on school mornings....on non-school mornings you usually sleep until 7:30-8ish am
  • Your favorite tv shows are Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Little Enstienes
  • You count to 12, know most every letter, and know all of your shapes (including octagon!) but you can't keep colors straight to save your life :)
  • You LOVE a good dance party
  • You have great say "please", "thank you", and "excuse me".  We are working on "yes mam" and "no thank you".
  • You are pretend playing more and more
  • You love to hug and kiss Mommy and Daddy
  • You have started pulling your hair down allllll of the time.  We battle about this a lot.  It's not that I care just a whole ton that you have your hair fixed all the's that you know you aren't suppose to take it down and you do anyway!
  • You LOVE your Bulldogs 
  • You have started trying to put your shoes and socks on by yourself and you are so proud about it
  • You mostly speak in full sentences
This will be my last monthly post. :(  I decided that once she turned 2 that I would stop doing it.  I'll probably do a big milestone update at 2 1/2.  It's been so much fun documenting Ellington every month.  If not for this blog I wouldn't have remembered most thing!


  1. Love my girl. Getting so big. I will miss the monthly posts on what she is doing, but know that you will keep up the other posts!

  2. Happy late birthday! You can update any time you want. You might do it quarterly. She is precious and sounds so smart.
