Ellie's 2 year pics!

Ellie had her 2 year pics taken at the Fort Worth Stockyards by our friend & neighbor, Caroline Carmack. They came out great! Here are a few of my faves!

Since Ellie has turned 2, she is so different! Her sentences, words, personality! All of it! Jon and I are enjoying this time of growth and learning ourselves, how to handle her changes! She sure has determination & will ;) Ellie is still concerned with other people and how they feel. She will ask how we are, if we like our food, ask to kiss boo-boos, and overall just make sure our worlds are ok. It is so sweet to see her spirit shine through!

Ellie's favorite toys now a days are little figurines from Nemo, Toy Story 3, & Olivia. She has also rediscovered Violet, the talking dog. She sings along with the songs and plays them over and over before bedtime. She loves to sing songs - Where is Jesus, No More Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, Rock a By Baby!

Ok, well there's your Ellie update. :)
