Ella is funny

The other day Ella asked Tim to get her a blanket for her doll. “Why don’t you get it?” E: “because I’m small and my legs are small and I am slow.”

When asked why she wasn’t playing with Isla as much she answered: “we are the big girls.” Me: “but know, you are younger than Isla.” Ella looked really confused.

Rhysy talks

Two weeks ago I was in the car with Rhys and he said “what.” I told him there was no water and he’d have to wait until we got home. He pointed to the passenger seat (where there was indeed a water bottle) and yelled: “I wanty water!”

He’s definitely stringing words together, forming sentences, such as “Ella, come on,” “I want this,” “I don’t want that.”

So fun!
