Yesterday I got the special treat of spending the afternoon and evening with Elsie (now 18 months old)while Emolyn was at Mimis (http://lindathompson.blogspot.com/)- Thank you Mimi! I rarely get to spend tim with just Elsie and we had a blast! She is very different than Emolyn and in such fun ways. She plays very independently but is also very cuddly. She loves to sleep and she loves to eat. She has a super loud voice, maybe to be heard over her sisters constant chatter. She is very expressiver, which Emolyn was too, but Elsie seems to know when she is getting a reaction from the crowd and really knows how to work it. She loves t sing and dance. Her favorite show is "Yo Gaba Gaba" which she calls, or yells "Yeah yeah Yo", pretty much anytime the tv is turned on. She likes to use sign language but almost always will say the word while she signs it. Mostly she asks for "cookie" and "candy", awesome. She starts screaming "mama" or just screaming when I get home because she is so excited. She definitely wears her emotions on her sleeve. The way she says "Oh no!" is so adorable! When you ask her what her name is she says "Daddy" and when you remind her her name is Elsie she say "EL-sie". Every time she sees my mom she says "Papa?" Looking for Papa John.
