Some funny and absolutely adorable things that Ella says:
"futterfly" = butterfly
"shew fly" = she says this to any flying bug such as bees, wasps, flies, etc. while swatting her hand at them
"boon mommy, boon" = balloon, oh my heck, she can spot balloons anywhere, on the ceiling at the grocery store, flying in the sky, in the background on t.v., you name it and she'll spot it
"airpane" = she loves to see airplanes and will always point them out for you
"Dubbin" = she loves her cousin Dublin
"Nach" = her favorite Uncle Zach
"Mommy Baby v. Ella Baby" = that is how you determine when she's talking about her brother or her doll
She loves anything that provides transportation as well. She insists on pointing out every bike, boat, bus, train, airplane, car and truck and she says everything with a New York accent... it brings a smile to my face just thinking about it.
Ella also gets very excited for things that she loves. For example, we had to go to the mall a couple nights ago and since Andrew was with us (and we forgot the double stroller) Ella got to walk. When we got in the store she was running from one thing to the next telling us what everything was with such enthusiasm. Shoes mommy, tie daddy, sunglasses, necklace, etc... this occurred with everything throughout the store right down to the mannequins hands. On our way back out we, I mean I, was perusing the munchkins clothes. I found a dress that had some cats appliqued on the front and when I held it up to show Ella she said "Whoa!!! Kitty, kitty mommy"! I couldn't stop laughing, it was one of the funniest things I've ever heard her say. Of course she came running up to the dress after and thought that was just the coolest thing ever. I didn't even know she knew the word "whoa". I think it'll be one of those times that's burned into my mommy brain forever.
Anyways, Ella is just getting so big and independent and giving us lots of laughs every day. We love her so much and can't imagine life without her.
