Hide & seek

We are all obsessed with hide and seek at least once in our lifetime. Well for Eliza that time is now!

We play everyday at least four times. At first I hide, she counts "1, 2, 5, 8, 4, here me come!" and then as she's getting close she says "mommy where you?" and of course I say "Liza, oh liza" in whatever silly voice I feel like until she finds me.

Then she wants to hide in the same spot I just did. Or she wants me to hide again in the same spot but under her blanket. Lol because an adult under a blanket is as good as any hiding spot!

Last week I hid next to the laundry basket and put Luke in the basket. Eliza liked it do much she wanted in while I found her. By the time I got to the basket after counting she was done with that spot. Can't you tell?!?!

Gotta love her!

"Feed my baby!"

Two nights ago Eliza was supposed to be going to sleep but she kept coming out of her room. At one point we thought she was asleep and then all of a sudden her door handle started to twist and she said, "Feed my baby mommy." When she came out of her room her pjs were unzipped and she was carring her baby.

Matt and I were sitting on the couch and as Eliza approached us she said, "Feed my baby." as she brought her babies head to bare chest. It was too funny! I guess she just wants to be like her mom!

Having fun & Eliza at 2 1/2

On Tuesdays we have Joy School and on Thursday we have playgroup, the other three days we are hanging with our friends, running errands or doing something not so noteworthy... but some days we just sit in the kids' room and play. On this day Eliza got out the birthday supplies and Luke and Liza couldn't have been more fascinated with the balloons.

My two little ones are TOO cute. Eliza is about 2 1/2 and Luke is almost 10 months and they are BEST friends!
Eliza couldn't get enough of the tape. What a funny girl.

So what is Eliza like at 2 1/2 years old?
- Smart
- Silly
- Funny
- Dancing queen: We watched the new Footloose movie and Eliza danced for the ENTIRE movie. She loves to say, "I shake my booty" while she is dancing and it is HILARIOUS!
- Loves trying to sing hymns: Today she sang "My mommy, my daddy, my Lukey" over and over in Sacrament meeting during the songs.
- Doesn't want to go potty on the big girl potty
- Comes out of her room a billion times when she doesn't want to take a nap. When she is tired she is asleep in 5 seconds.
- When we put her to sleep she said, "No turn on lights" which actually means leave the light on. We have to turn off her bedroom light after she falls asleep.
- Loves playing in Ellie's crate, consequently so do all of her friends!
- Everyday she asks when she is going to see her friends. Then she starts to name them: Nah (Savannah), Abby, Raegan, Ella, Kylie
- Any word with a double "l" she sticks out her tongue multiple times during the "ll" part.
- Loves Mickey Mouse
- "Sure" is her favorite answer to a Yes/No question.
- Can count to 10 with help on 7:Yesterday we were driving in the car as a family and Eliza started counting. She got all the way to 6 and then started skipping through the numbers. That was the first time she counted all the way to 6 by herself. At that moment I was so proud and a little sad that my little girl is growing up :(

All in all, we can't get enough of her and we don't stop laughing when she is around. Eliza LOVES her Lukey and tries her hardest to play with him.
