Just a look back, for the scrapbook, at Ella on her 4th birthday…..
Ella’s speech is coming along. Her vocabulary is huge. But her pronunciation is still coming along. She enjoyed going to speech at the elementary school last year. She will start up again in the this week. She still has some what of a Chinese accent which makes me laugh some days. Ella’s favorite words: actually and awhile.
Me: Please start eating your breakfast. E: It’s going to take awhile.
Me: Please go potty before we leave. E: It’s going to take awhile.
Me: Let’s work this puzzle. E: That’s going to take a long while.
Me: Would you like oatmeal or cereal? E: Actually, eggs.
Me: Want to read a book? E: Actually, let’s listen to music.
Ella is still a pretty adventurous eater. But her eating habits depend on how she’s feeling emotionally that day. So we still have some struggles at meal time. But she loves all types of Cheerios, yogurt, applesauce, nuts, pretzels, any and all fruit, carrots, pickles, crackers, soup, cucumbers. Her new favorites, thanks to Mimi, potato salad and tuna casserole. Neither of those she will find at home, so it’s her and Mimi’s special meal. She also has developed some fine dining taste buds….steak is a favorite of hers. Along with real breakfast food (i.e. eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, french toast, etc).
Ella loves music, books, and puzzles. She really loves to dance and is always asking for a dance party. I think in a former life she was an 80’s aerobics instructor.
Food: Almost anything. Her recent discoveries are tuna fish sandwiches (courtesy of Mimi), soup, most vegetables, noodles and rice, steak.
Drinks: Milk and Pink Lemonade
Songs: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star and Old MacDonald (every.single.night!)
Clothes: shorts and t-shirts just like her brothers. She does not want to wear a dress, ever.
Shows: Bubble Guppies, Team Umizoomi, Dora, Curious George
Colors: Pink and Purple, of course.
Can’t wait to see what new things Ella Wei discovers this year!
