Elana will be 21months next Tuesday which is really weird. I was sick yesterday which left me too weak for us to go to Kindermusik this morning.

Elana's been playing really well with her toys, books and stroller so I've had a bit of peace. Yesterday Nick stayed home from work and I slept all day in Elana's room but her door doesn't close and she made a game of running up the hallway to push it open before Daddy could get her.
So in the afternoon he took her for a walk for an hour and I slept blissfully uninterrupted for that time.

She's saying more and more things and she's willing to say more things. The biggest thing is she started counting last week. I'm not sure where she learnt because the only counting is 1 grey elephant, 2 grey elephants etc or one step two step ticklle under there, or the page in One fish two fish red fish blue fish that goes Say look at his fingers 1 ,2, 3 how many fingers do I see 1, 2,3 ,4 .. 5, 6,7 8,9,10 he has 11 eleven this is something new I wish I had eleven too.
Or how when she's about to be tickled or go down the slide we say 1, 2, 3 - whee

So this doesn't explain for she can count to 10. one TWO Three four (she always skips 5 so we say it for her) SIX (she sometimes says seven like seh) ATE (eight it has this accent on it it's my favourite nine TEEENN

and if you don't count with her it's TWO ATE NIIIGH TEEEENNNN.

Two nights ago she started a stopping game with Nick where she'd run up the hallway and then she'd yell stop and then they'd laugh and she'd run again. Nick thinks I taught her but I only say stop when she's naughty so...

She's recently become more interested in the tupperware cupboard pulling all the tupperware out stirring with a bowl and spoon. Wednesday morning she actually had a recipe book open and she was sitting on her couch with the book, a bowl and she was stirring this empty bowl with a spoon.

She makes up songs too herself. Usually they're nonsense until they turn into something recogniseable (twinkle twinkle) but occassionally I've heard her sing the good morning song from Kindermusik which is HUGE. It means that even though she runs around during class she's getting something out of it.
Last week (lesson 3) she actually participated in the first 20minutes and was only running around for the last part (it's a 45min lesson) so that's an improvement maybe today if we had of made it she would have been good.

That's all I can think of for now.

Sounds like she is having a grand time with the hallway running, counting and belting out tunes...oh, to be a toddler again.

Heya! I hope you are feeling much better today and it's great to see Elana is doing fantastically... and so smart!!

I finally wrote something! You'll probably say... ohhh not AGAIN... but i'm not going out of my way or torturing myself this time. Itz fo rizzle. The only reservation I have at the moment is that she is not a Christian, but she is in an eager to learn state of mind and has no ideas about what happens when you die. So the possibility is there and from the amount of other things happening and i'm learning about from her that are just so much better than any other time before with anyone else and stuff that you know just had to happen for a reason because it happened way too easily for me to be responsible for it or there is just no explanation on how it could have happened, but did anyways...

But i'll shut it off now so you can maybe read what i'm on about...

We should catch up soon! Peace Out!
