Our Little Learner

So, yes, the Terrible Twos are still happening, to a lesser degree. Also, we actually have days where there are no tantrums at all, so I'd say that things are definitely improving! Or at least, we're heading into a turn on this crazy roller coaster of life, and just watch out for what's around the corner...

Elie has been sucking up her ABCs like they are made of chocolate. She loves letters, and is also picking up numbers. (So far only one, two and three. Nothing else exists to her.) She loves to play her alphabet applications on the old iPad. When she sees letters anywhere (sweatshirt, box, magazine) she's quick to point out the letters she knows. "B, 'baby'! M, 'mama'!" And so on. She knows A, B, D, E, I, J, M, N, O, and W. She also knows K is for Keith, but says, "K, 'dada!' " which is also what she says for D. We're working on the alphabet, still. I have to remind myself, She's just two! when I realize that I'm pushing her a little bit harder on identifying them correctly. Still, she takes it all in stride!

She picks up new words almost every day. We don't always notice that it's the first time she says something, because it's happening at a rate that's hard for us to absorb. Later on, we'll say, "I think she said, '(whatever the word is)'... have you heard her say that before?" She's just a sponge sucking up the world around her, and squeezing it back out, a little at a time. Pretty wild!

Here are a few pictures from Christmas that I never got to post...

This was actually from her birthday, a couple weeks before
Elie also had a birthday in December that I never posted. She had two little parties this year, instead of one big one. We had a small celebration at home, on her actual birthday of Dec. 9th. Then we had one that her Nana hosted that weekend... She got to blow out a few candles!

I'm going to try to be better about posting... but I don't know if anyone is still checking to see if there are any new blogs from me! It's been a while, I know. Sorry about that! I hope that everyone is well, and that you'll get to visit us out here in PA soon! Elie would love to see family and friends!!
