ella cannot pronounce her "L's" yet. she talks constantly like her brother but since she's still only 2, she has yet to fully develop some of the problem letters. i know she'll grow out of this, but part of me wishes she wouldn't because it's so cute. BUT i don't think she would share my enthusiasm about her speech when she's a teenager.
N-E-ways, i digress. she can't say the "L" so b thinks it's funny to make her say words with that letter in them. we had enchiladas the other night and she was wondering what was inside them. she kept saying enchiyadas...b would repeat it but she would get so frustrated with him b/c in her mind she was saying it correctly. so when he would say "enchiyada" she would say "no daddy, it's en-chi-YADA!" so determined. she also says "yove" for love and "yady" for lady and will not say "la, la, la" she just smiles and laughs. love this girl!
last night we were blessed by my dad and his girlfriend (yes, my dad has a girlfriend) they came by to pick the kids up and take them out to eat at mcdonalds then back to the house for a movie. yay! free night for us! we took full advantage. went out to eat, took our time, adult conversation, didn't have to say "stop that" and "get down from there", watched a movie, and just had a wonderful evening. very nice! thanks dad and pam!
one funny part about the evening was how much time my dad thought it would take for all the events to transpire. he picked them up at 6pm and said they should be done in 3 hours. i laughed and said, "good luck with that." i guess he thought they would eat at mcdonalds, where there are nuggets and a playground of fun and it would take them 30 minutes. followed immediately by a movie which was only 1 hour and 20 minutes...so it made perfect sense. ha ha ha ha! the kids didn't get home until 11pm. nope, i wasn't upset at all, honestly. when the kids walked through the door they were wide awake and very happy. they had just had a great night with their poppa and i had a nice evening with my honey. so, who cares if they got to bed late. it wasn't the first and it sure won't be the last!
great start to the weekend! enjoy!
