Ellie is incredibly smart, social, and sweet. She can read at a seriously impressive level, and we're constantly having to go to the library to stock up on more books for her. She likes to make her own "books" out of paper that she illustrates and fills with dialogue and descriptions. (A couple of her recent publications include "The Poop Man" and "The Jungle Games.") She likes dragons, dinosaurs, My Little Ponies, and Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom. She likes to take pictures and videos using our phones and cameras. She loves doing art - using colored pencils, crayons, paint, markers, scissors, glue - everything. She runs, in her words, "as fast as a roadrunner."
Jason and I did a little birthday interview with her this morning. Here are her answers to our questions:
What are your favorite colors? "Blue and purple."
If you had $100, what would you do? "Use some of them to buy stuff."
What's your favorite TV show? "Ben and Holly."
Who are your best friends? "Zelda and Sue."
What kind of pet do you want? "A corn snake or a worm snake."
Here are some of Ellie's recent art highlights:
I want to post so many more, but I'm going to restrain myself and stop there.
Ellie is an amazing, amazing girl, and we love her so much. Happy birthday Ellie!
