I am so glad you asked, because today she used a washcloth that she found, who knows where, to transfer water from the 'big potty' to her little potty. Yep, it's a great activity, you might want to try it....or just take my word for it that it kept her entertained and silent for a good 5 to 10 minutes whish is saying something.

|She caught on to the whole "tick teet" thing really quickly.|
|Isn't she the cutest elephant?|

Sorry that it looks like I don't take pictures of you and if you compare the number of posts about you to your sister at this age she would win. Please understand that is part of being a second child and part of having a mom out of practice of taking pictures and part of having a mom with a broken-ish camera. Please know you are still loved just as much and that I can't get enough of this toothless grin.
Love, your Mom.

Lately Elizabeth loves rhinos. Anywhere there is a picture of one she will find it, and her block creations always end up as rhinos. She also loves walruses and always wants to see picture of them.
Elizabeth cannot stop talking about her dad's RC car he got for his birthday. She wants to hold it, and drive it and watch it go 'faaas'.
Elizabeth is picking up new words everyday and putting more and more words together. She is also mimicking everything we say so I am learning how often I say 'that' or 'no way'.
She still loves music and has started to learn the words to songs. The other day I started to sing "follow the prophet" and she could finish every line. She can do the same thing with twinkle twinkle, I am a Child of God, Jesus wants me for a Sunbeam (sunbeep), and her fish song (one we sing at storytime) and a few others.
She can count in the way 2 yr olds count. She know the number 1-10 but usually skips 5 and 8 and repeats 7 (seden) and 9 several times before getting to 10.
Elizabeth likes ice a lot. She likes to eat it, kind of, but mostly likes playing with it and holding it and transferring it from one cup to another.
Elizabeth has discovered turns, as a part of our effort to help her share, and always wants a turn (my turn, my turn) when we are sweeping, or at the computer or burping Oliver.
She is a great helper. She puts away the silverware, cleans up her toys, fetches Olivers things for me, always wants to sweep or vacuum or scrub(schrub) something.
Elizabeth is very determined and has a desire to enact her agency already.
She is a joy to us and keeps us constantly laughing and all the funny things she say and does.

|This is how the pictures started. Any guesses on what he wants here?|
|She's yelling "HI" at the top of her lungs.|
|It started as this....|
|Progressed to this|
|Then this (I have to say this saddest of sad faces just melts my heart)|
|He is such a good pouter.|
|Giving kissing lips to his Mom.|
|Pictures....and everything else, make him sleepy.|
Elizabeth LOVES him. There aren't enough capital letters to describe it. You can just tell that she is so excited for the day when he can actually play with her.
He has started focusing on our faces and smiling. Mostly at me for obvious reasons, and the morning right after he eats is really fun because he just smiles at me.
Also, he gets a high five from his me because he is sleeping a 6 hour stretch at night and then another 2. Elizabeth was so small that she didn't do that forever so I am feeling almost like a normal person and when I get a nap I really feel like a normal person.
