Ellis 2 years

Ellis turned 2 years old today, here are a few pictures from yesterday playing in the snow, and today celebrating! We have enjoyed a nice day together the 4 of us... Eventually he will want parties and friends and craziness, but for now we'll be happy with a little less and enjoy the time we have together before he gets too big for us!

Ellis is the smartest kid I know! (what, moms can say that!) I get to brag about him at least once a year- so today is the day! He loves to say his ABC's, he sings them to himself to sleep, he yells them out when he's mad, he says them over and over. He also loves to count and count everything! Lights on the ceiling... legos... hands, fingers, eyes... trees. He's a little crazy now, definitely in the middle of the 'terrible twos'- he's a screamer, we'll walk by somebody in a grocery store and he greets them with a scream and a scowl... We're working on that. He repeats everything we say and it's so cute to hear his little voice saying so many words.
And he's so gorgeous =) 










*post edit* I spent 20 minutes making him a birthday hat because a few weeks before he got one at another kid's party and wouldn't part with it for a week- even slept with it. Immediately when he got this one he pulled off all the meticulously placed and glued pom poms I put all over it.
*post edit* he is actually saying "WOOOOAAAHHH!" in this one, not screaming, surprisingly- it's his new favorite word. next to scream.
