I’m taking a photograph of Eleanor each day until the new baby arrives, to document our last 4-6 weeks as a family of three.
You love to take your stuffed animals on adventures through the house. You talk to them and have conversations that nobody else can understand, but you’re very animated while doing so. It’s really cute.
You went to the store with mama to look for a birthday present for Aunt Ashley, but you came home with a new friend. You hugged your lion and gave him little kisses on the nose, then showed him off and made him roar. He instantly became your new sleeping buddy too.
These pink poufs are supposed to be seating for your new play table, but we don’t have anywhere to set it up yet. That doesn’t matter much to you though. You’re perfectly happy that they’re in the living room where you can climb around on them and try to balance, or just moosh your face into them.
Today you are twenty one months old. Every month on the 29th, mama takes your picture in the same outfit and in the same chair. It’s fun to see how you’ve grown, and how your personality has developed. It definitely shows in the photos!
We had a party for Aunt Ashley’s 24th birthday and everyone gathered at our house. December, January, and February are busy months for our family with many birthdays to celebrate, and soon your little brother will add one more.
You’ve been getting good at making funny faces! You puff out your cheeks, or you scrunch up your lips, or sometimes you make a fishy face. You’re a bit of a goofball, just like daddy.
Staring out the window and making spit bubbles makes you happy. Ah, to enjoy the simple things in life! The snow had just started falling as you watched, and it soon went from light and fluffy to blizzard conditions.
