22 Months Old!

Seriously....2 months away from Ellie's 2nd birthday! I can't believe it. While this really is more of a fun stage with her, there is always a catch - testing boundaries with me. Man, she loves to do that! This is when single-parenting really stinks. And when boundaries are crossed and punishment happens, tantrums are the result. Not every time, but the world sometimes ends for Ellie (at least that's what she sounds like). She has progressed even more in her words (saying more sentences or attempting to put words together), singing short songs (mainly about apple juice or minnie mouse), and naming ownership to everything and making sure I am paying attention to her (mommy's chair, daddy's chair, mommy's hot juice, mommy's car, daddy's car, ellie's seat, etc.). She is "helping mommy" out more, even with putting silverware away from the dishwasher or feeding Callie. She's also helping mommy clean up after her messes more. Even though Jesse is away, I still love spending time with my little girl. As crazy as it sounds, the deployment is a little easier to deal with when you have someone to take care of and take up the time. She's a pistol, but so full of joy and laughter. Now on to birthday party planning...
