I keep thinking I need to write down all these things that come out of Ella's mouth these days. Of course, I've been saying this for the past 6 months and have yet to start. So, I'm just going to start today and try to do this once a week. Ya'll, the girl is h.i.l.a.r.i.o.u.s!! Any car ride is sure to bring out a good laugh from her.
*Mommy, when I get older on Friday, I'm going to fly in an airplane and go to Grammie and Poppie's lake house in my swimsuit and get in the water. Wouldn't that be neat? Oh...wait. It's not summer yet. It's too cold to wear our swimsuits. Maybe on Sunday."
Sure, Ella. You know...when you get "older" one week from now. And yeah, I'm sure Sunday will be plenty of time for summer weather to make its way here.
*(Ella while reading the Bible) In the beginning God made Angelina Ballerina, the plants, a big spider, Marabelle, and all the things in WHOLE WIDE WORLD!!!!!!
(Marabelle is the name of Fancy Nancy's doll in that book series. Every doll in our house right now is named Marabelle.)
*(Ella's new song that she made up) "I like cucumbers, I like tomatoes, I like carr...uh...SOME carrots, and I LOVE mashed potatoes, I like babies, I like Jacob, I like broccoli, I like squash...(and it goes on and on until she runs out of ideas. But, she always starts it off with those first few things)
*Here mommy. It's okay. I'll hold your hand while you go poopie. It's not scary. You won't fall in. You want me to sing you a song while you go poopie? .......mommy!!! You did it! You get 2 M&M's!!
*Mommy, it makes me sad when you don't obey.
*Mommy, I LOOOOOVE God!!
And that, my friends, is life with an almost 3 year old.
