I can feed myself!

Hi everyone! Elle was cracking me up today, like normal I guess. She is very insistent on being a big girl! She wanted to feed herself, apparently I can't get it in her mouth fast enough. I guess its one of two ways, either your child will eat nothing or eat everything. Elle is on the everything, although it is not as easy as it seems. If anyone is eating she thinks she deserves a bite no matter who it is or if she is hungry or not. I think she is going to have the fastest metabolism when she grows up. Anyways here are some pics of her being a "big girl" feeding herself oatmeal for breakfast!

Once it landed in her hair she looked up at me like uh-oh!

Then she decided it was funny and was shoveling it in her mouth and on the floor to Lola.

She had to get every last bit of oatmeal out of the bowl!

All done!

Lucas was roping her stuffed animals the other day with this and now all she does is carry her rope around swinging her arms, its pretty funny!

Playing outside

She has the sweetest face...sometimes!

Nice little animal lover!

Loves to be outside!

Kissing Cousins

We were up to Uncle Loud Man & Anut Chels' house the other day and this was the nicest Elle & Matty have ever been to each other. Matty was giving everyone kisses and Elle even gave Matty a big wet smooch! Matty doesn't really like to eat food, but Elle sure does. So Matty the nice boy he was fed Elle his bites of Granola bar, which she gladly accepted! They are so fun right now, but definitely have minds of their own! (Just stubborn like their dads!) Here are some pics of when Johnny came over and LeAnne's wedding too!

So cute!

Elle reciprocating and making Matty took some coaxing on both ends!

We are on to you Matty eat your food don't feed it to Ellie!

Rocking w/Grandpa & talking on the phone! Multi-tasker already!

She kept putting Grandma's glasses on. Hopefully she will never need them!

I stole her treasured binky right out of her mouth!

It was so nice here last weekend that Lucas & I took her to the park!

She loved the swings, but I was so bored of pushing her back & forth!

All of us girls at LeAnne's wedding. Lauren was her Maid of Honor. Sorry Elle this isn't a good pic of you, but it was the only one with Aunt JuliAnne's eyes open!!!

Bride & MOH

Elle is so funny when she smells flowers she does a little shutter!

Cousins playing at Aunt Shelly's house. Elle now thinks she should only run and climb over stuff after watching the "Big" kids!

Johnny was so cute & nice to Elle and she just adores him!
