vocabulary explosion!

Elaina has taken off in the vocabulary department, and I couldn't be happier. It seems like she's saying something new everyday!
My favorite is still "mummy" (no clue where she gets that English accent?!).
Her favorites seem to be "book", "babies", "duck", "bye-bye", and "yeah". We don't get "yes" and/or "no" from her, we get "yeah" and "nah". And this morning I asked her if she wanted milk and she said "please"...manners make my heart melt.
I love getting to hear her voice more and more. We've been hearing it for quite a while, but now we're finally understanding all the "Elaina jibberish".

I haven't mentioned our beach trip, but in one word it was amazing. We had such fun taking Elaina to the beach for the very first time! She loved the ocean and the sand. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the week...

{happy anniversary}

4 years ago today Kevin and I got married. In some ways the past 48 months have flown by, but then again I feel like we've been together for forever. Little did we know that our 4th anniversary would be spent with our beautiful (nearly) 2 year old daughter on a date to Salsarita's and Target. Sure, a nice romantic fancy dinner would be nice, but we both know and agree we'd just miss Elaina and talk about her the entire time. So, Tex-Mex and Target is a-okay with me! Happy anniversary Kevin! <3

conversations with E

me: "Elaina, what color is your shirt?"
her: "abiba"
me: "Does that mean purple?"
her: "abibish"

we need a translator.
