Ella is 18 months!

It’s Monday!  But no Menu Monday for me.  We are having leftover pizza tonight, with this amazing Greek Salad that I whipped together.  OK, fine.  There is one recipe for ya!

If you haven’t discovered Pioneer Woman, you should.  I wouldn’t call her food healthy, but oh-my- goodness good!  If I made her stuff every week,  I would gain 50 pounds.

Anyways, Ella is 18 months old!  Seriously, how did that happen?!  There is absolutely no baby left in this girl… she is all toddler.  I couldn’t even begin to list all of the words she can say now.  She has a new one every day.

My absolute favorite thing is her new-found ability to sing.  If she wants to listen to a certain song, she will come up and hum part of it, or sing a little blurp of the lyrics (this is, of course, in her toddler-ese).  Her favorites are Barbara Ann by The Beach Boys and She Loves You by the Beatles.  She will come up and sing, “Ba Ba Ba ANN!” for Barbara Ann, or “Yeah, yeah, yeah” for She Loves You.  Holy cuteness!

She is still her feisty self, of course.  She has learned to re-enact various falls or injuries.  If I am making dinner, or doing something else where she isn’t getting enough attention, she will quickly re-enact one of these events to get some much needed hugs and kisses.

She loves amals (animals), playing atside (outside), going to the pawk (park), and fwing (swinging).  She also grown very attached to her baby doll, ever since finding out that there was another baby growing inside of mommy.  She spends a couple hours a day rocking it, changing its diaper and feeding it.

Oh yes, we found some animals!

She LOVES big doggies.

Did somebody say fwing at the pawk?!

And here she is, taking care of her BeeBee!

I am so blessed to have this little girl in my life!  Happy 1 1/2 years sweet Ella!
