times are a-changin

I don't know what has happened, but all of a sudden I have a little girl instead of a little baby. This is wonderful and awful at the same time. The last 2 years have flown by and it scares me to think of how fast the next 16 are gonna go. Clues to Ellie's new found "big girlness"...

She actually tried to splash me in the pool.
She requested cold cereal for breakfast. Not a big deal you think? I pride myself on her healthy hot breakfasts every morning and she finally said "no eggs and sausage, mama, I want big cereal!!" Her wish was my command.
She talks on the phone like she had been doing it for 15 years.
She plays pretend. This is so much fun to watch. Every morning, she refills my coffee, makes me a pie (cherry of course) and pops me some popcorn. I did not teach her any of this. In this particular picture, she is feeding all her babies (who are in their highchairs!) and she was going "and a bite for you, and a bite for you," etc...
She is a diva!! Must be wearing jewelry at all times.

There are a few other clues as well....She negotiates. She has painted toes and loves them!! Cute or trashy? I have no idea but the power went out the other day and I gave us pedis (to kill some time)!! She tries to make us laugh and is very good at it. She has to carry a purse when we go out filled with essentials like a car, a toy dog, 12cents, a book, and a little man. Like I don't have enough to carry...

Slow down honey! Don't grow up so fast!!
