18 months







18 months means.... welcome to nursery, addicted to her binkie, can say Mom, Daddy, Drew, Ella, Daisy, Cookie, all done, binkie, car, baby, no, poopy, outside, uh oh and others I can't think of right now. Loves to play outside on her bike (oh that's another word she can say). Loves to play in the water even if it is just Daisy's water bowl or the toilet. Gives great kisses and hugs. Is loved by the whole neighborhood. When I go outside with her all I hear is "it's Ivy!". I love my Ivy Lucile, she is sweet as sugar. Here are a few funny pictures that Steve took of her the last time she went swimming. Notice the purple lips, she wouldn't get out of the pool even though she was freezing. I can't believe how big she is getting, she is now one of the kids, not so much my baby.

something cute Ella said

The other day I asked Ella how she got to be so pretty and her response was "I don't know". Then I ask "Did Heavenly Father make you pretty?" and she said "No, you did. Heavenly Father doesn't know how to do ponies". I laughed and then wondered if he could do a good ponytail or not?

Ella's New Bike



For Ella's birthday back in March we gave her a bike helmet and told her that we would go and let her pick out a bike. 4 months later we did. (What is our problem?) So off to the store we went and Steve lined up 5 bikes for Ella to choose from. There was the princess bike, one that said Cutie, a Barbie bike and a few others. Without hesitation she chose the Barbie bike and it was a great choice. It is pink and purple, has a backpack on the front, tassels on the handlebars and a Barbie bike that attaches to one of the handles that she can put her own Barbie in for a ride. Doesn't she look great?
