Eliana these days...

FlickrDroid Upload, originally uploaded by elizabethwickland.

It's been a while since I've recapped what Eliana is up to these days, so here's a glimpse of what she's like:

* Ellie LOVES braids. She wants braids every day. I have learned that if I braid her hair right when she gets out of the tub, it stays that way for a couple days. =D

* Ellie loves to wear dresses. She wants to wear them every day. I'm pretty happy to let her.

* Ellie is in imagination city right now. You never know when she's talking to you, or when she's talking to the imaginary mommy. It cracks me up!

* Ellie is still talking every waking moment. She wakes up talking and falls asleep talking and pretty much talks every moment in between. It's impressive how many words she can rattle off in a day.

* Ellie is still off milk, and does very well with it. She was given some trail mix with M&M's in it the other day, and she picked out an M&M, gave the lady a "you should know better" look and said, "Um, I can't have M&M's. They have milk in them." I let her pick them out and give them to me so I could eat them. She's good about staying away from milk. I'm thankful. =D

* Ellie is still pretty self-sufficient and has no problem getting herself food when she needs it. For the most part, she even gets herself healthy food like apples, bananas, toast, etc. She's a good kid.

* Ellie's favorite colors are pink and purple. She can't decide between the two now, so she lists both.

* If you ask Ellie how old she is, she will proudly proclaim that she is "FREE!"

* Eliana's favorite animal is a cat. She is always pretending to be a cat, and has 3 little stuffed kitties that she plays with incessantly. They go everywhere with us, at least one of them. See the orange kitty in the picture above? Yeah.

Oh man, I love that little gal. I laughed aloud at each thing on the list. Especially the one about the m&m's...not just ridiculously smart but also quite responsible for a free-year-old. I miss you guys. Hope to visit as soon as life settles down a bit for me.
