2.5 Years Old


Elin just turned 2.5 years old last Sunday!  Before we know it she will be 3 years old. Somehow the 2s are flying faster than the 1s!  She is such a happy and smart little girl.  She loves to sing and dance.  When she gets in the car she immediately asks for music and she loves to sing along to the radio.  Her absolute favorite song right now is Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” but she shockingly knows the lyrics to many songs on the radio.


She also loves to watch music videos and she taught herself to do the splits from watching Sia’s Chandelier.


She repeats and says everything!  She has recently learned my first name and thinks it’s hilarious to say that sometimes. She also loves to repeat all the names of her family.  Her favorite phrases are , “I did it!!”, “What are you talking about?”, “Oh my goodness!” and, “Would you look at that?”


She is enamored with all things Christmas and loves all the decorations everywhere.  This is the first year she has a concept of Santa and I’m looking forward to her visiting him.  Her favorite holiday book is “Llama Llama Holiday Drama”.


She loves dressing up and wearing jewelry, playing with her kitchen, crafting and reading books.  She also loves any time outdoors but sadly the weather has not been great for going outside.


I am very proud of her for trying to be a good girl most of the time.  She is pretty good at listening to directions and minding what she is told. Just being near her brings us so much joy!






  1. Cash thinks he is the funniest when he calls me Amy. 🙂

  2. So sweet, she’s got such a cute little personality 🙂

  3. She’s adorable. I love her smiles and her copying what you say. Callie does that too and sometimes she’ll say something and i”m like where did you learn that phrase… then I’ll catch myself saying it a few hours later! Crafts and kitchen are favorites here too. Oh and I agree the 2s are way faster than the 1s!

  4. ohmygoodness at Elin teaching herself the splits! So awesome! We watch Youtube videos of ballets over here and I catch Lily performing advanced moves I know for a fact she didn’t learn in her ballet class. Amazing what they pick up! I giggled at her using your first name. I used my husband’s first name one day and since then, Lily finds it absolutely hilarious to call him by no other name than his own. Daddy just won’t do. She also knows my first name. I guess it just isn’t as thrilling to her.

  5. So cute! Avery LOVES “Shake It Off” too, she sings it constantly!
    And she’s always saying “i did it” even when its something she shouldn’t be doing.. hah
    The twos do go way too fast

  6. Sweet girrrrrrrrrl! Stop growing so fast! LOVE her sweater!
    I can’t wait for Mia to start talking even more like Elin does!

  7. Your 2.5 year old is so much better than mine! But really, can you believe our kids are so big? How did this happen? I just did Mac’s 2.5 year update today too. Crazy!
