Big Punks is 19 months

(Yes - sometimes this is as good as it gets)

Eloise had quite the number of "Firsts" this month:

1st Swim Lessons 
1st Haircut
1st time climbing up the clubhouse ladder and sliding down the slide unassisted
1st time flying kites

Just a few more "tricks" that she has mastered this month:
  • "Sssshhhh" with the one finger in front of her mouth and everything
  • When we say it's time to go, she says, "Coat?....Hat?"
  • Loves to point out her "Shoes & Shocks"
  • After eating her dinner, she will ask for fruit by saying, "Ffffffffrroooot"
  • Knows the hand motions for Twinkle, Twinkle, Wheels on the Bus, Itsy Bitsy Spider
  • Requests to watch cartoons by saying "Toons" with a strong emphasis on the T
  • Request to watch Cat in the Hat by saying, "Cat...Cat"
  • When she wants Daddy to toss her up in the air, she says "Twoooo" as in "1....2....3."  

Lastly, this month has been all about barn animals - practicing their sounds, reading books with them in it, and pointing them out on TV or in a story.  Eloise has a book called The Noisy Noisy Farm that makes the animal sounds throughout the book.  She is obsessed and wants to read it every night.  Mommy might just lose it if she reads it one more time.  She has mastered the following barn animals:  Cows, Pigs, Cats, Sheep, Owls, and Rooster.  Rooster is the best in the overall performance category because she will actually throw her head back and make the noise.

  1. Oh my goodness, how cute. You must take video of the rooster sound. Mac does an awesome horse! We should get those two together for barnyard fun sometime. :)
