about us...

I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

Ellie at 14 Months

You love to play with purses and your favorite seem to be of the Vera Bradley variety. I can't remember why you were upset in this picture, but I think someone tried to take your Silly Band stash. You usually have a purse and a baby within reach.

You feed yourself most of the time. You use a fork really well, but haven't quite figured out how a spoon works. Luckily, you don't mind if I feed you oatmeal or applesauce! If there's something on your plate that you don't want to eat, you line it up on the table in front of you.

You love to do art when Maggie does art. Your favorite thing to do is take the lids on and off of markers, but you scribble some too. We don't let you use crayons because you always try to eat them.

You'll go along with Maggie and do almost anything that she wants you to do. This will probably get you into trouble one day, but right now it's cute. Here you are being her baby.

You try to share all of your food and drink with us and always make a little noise (like the babies do when they drink the pretend bottle) when you offer it.

You like privacy when you use the bathroom. You will go in the kitchen or in the tent and come back and let me know (by patting your diaper) that you need a clean diaper. If I don't understand you point to your room where the diapers are. You sometimes let me know when you pee pee too. I'm wondering if what they say about cloth-diapered babies is true.

A few new words that you have started to say:
butt- for button

I'm probably way off but I think Ellie is starting to look more like Maggie. It's the eyes maybe!
