So Grown Up…

This past weekend has really opened my eyes to just how grown up Ellie is. From her switching the lights on and off without a stool, to getting up and letting the cat out every morning and getting herself drinks of water. Then there are things like how she calls Kahlei “Sweetheart” in a soft, motherly tone or how she cuddles and soothes Jasper.

It’s amazing to me that not even three and a half years ago this Little Lady was just like Jasper. Tiny, helpless and totally reliant on me. Just another reminder of how fast time really goes.

For some time now, I have been thinking about interviewing her and posting her answers and this seems like the perfect time for such a post;

  1. Where did the time go hey? It's so scary! I was watching my eldest lad turn into a boy in what seems like overnight. Love her answers. ADORABLE!

  2. That's so cute! I'd ask the three year old I looked after what people's jobs were and to explain what a kangaroo is. He told me his mummy's job was to "get angry and yell at me but still love me even though I'm naughty" Daddy's job was to get in the car, drive to the park and play all day.

    After I told him about all the animals in Australia he pointed out a funny, scruffy looking dog and told his mum it was a kangaroo.

    It's so funny seeing the world from their perspective.

  3. Love her interview that's so cute.
