Elin is full of energy and full of life. She loves to dance and spin, all while singing and laughing. She also enjoys reading her books, watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Doc McStuffins, playing with her kitchen, playing with her little friends, and petting her doggies. Mostly only Fifi because Angel is pretty scared of her.



She still attends ballet class, Gymboree, and story time. She is always trying to do somersaults, so a gymnastics class might be in the near future.


Elin has enjoyed toeing the line and testing the boundaries on what is right and wrong. We have been lucky to escape major tantrums but we have some mini ones of throwing toys, screaming, and running from me. She usually screams and runs and sits on the stairs when she is upset. When she is over it, she comes running back and acts like everything is normal.

I am constantly amazed at all the things she knows and picks up from others. You tell her something once and she remembers it for a lifetime. She is our silly girl and we love her to bits!



  1. Oh I loooove that she asks “what’s wrong baby” when she’s upset! That’s adorable! Mia is already asking “what’s that?” all the time! I love it!
    She is so cute, and growing way too fast!!

  2. I love all her favorite phrases. So cute! Weird about the care bear thing though. Kids come up with the funniest stuff. Don’t you wish you could just get inside their minds for a little bit?

  3. Seriously, when did she get so big? I love her little sayings, so cute!

  4. She looks so so grown up at dance class! I love the line “change elmo.” that’s the cutest way ever to say something. And these little sponges – it’s so cute what they pick up from others.

  5. So sweet! I love that she says “clean Elmo” we love our pampers too!
