Elin’s vocabulary continues to grow! She can count up to nine now. She still likes to point out all the features on the face and she has added “eyebrows”, “teeth” and “lips” when describing faces. She now says “hug” a lot as well. She also discovered the word “bug” and likes to point out all the bugs in her books.


Her newest obsession is the movie Frozen! She LOVES watching the sing alongs on YouTube. Her favorite is Elsa’s “Let it Go”. She will even try to mimic the hand motions. She sometimes sings along in parts.


Our biggest milestone was going to the movie theater for the first time! Elin was amazing! She stayed awake the whole time despite no nap beforehand and she was good and stayed quiet and seated the whole time. She was just transfixed by her favorite characters! I’m so proud of her!


She also had her first IKEA experience. She was excellent! She loved walking around and exploring all the many fun items they sell. There was a guy making balloon animals there and she ย was so excited to watch him make her a dog. She was a happy gal in the car and she entertained us all with her dance moves at lunch. She continues to love to dance even if she is sitting in her high chair.

She is really into playing with her blocks lately. ย She plays with them every evening after dinner. She also still loves her books, stuffed animals, tea sets, and princess castles.


She is still a good eater and she is enjoying biting into items more as opposed to me cutting it up for her. She also enjoys drinking from regular straws. Anything to be more of a big girl and less like a baby.

Overall she is good and mostly always in a good mood. Except she is still not a fan of the word “no”. She luckily doesn’t have to hear it often since she mostly manages to stay out of mischief. We continue to count our blessings that is laid back, sleeps great, and is healthy.
