The little things you swear you'll never forget and then inevitably (tragically!) do:

17 months old...

Runs to the bathroom every morning repeating "Teese! Teese! Teese!"
{Loves to brush her teeth}

Signals to me by patting her bottom and saying "Ew. Ew. Ew." when she needs her diaper changed.

Also follows her sisters into the bathroom and comments "Ew. Ew. Ew." when they go potty.

Would spend the ENTIRE DAY, EVERY DAY, in the backyard if allowed.

Loves Monster's Inc.

Runs in place when Tyler gets home, totally excited but likes to play coy and not jump right into his arms immediately

Loves to tell me, with tear filled eyes, about any "Owies" and "Uh ohs" she encounters during the day...
"Owwie, owie owie"

Hates the stroller and cries when we go on walks because she wants to ride the bikes instead like her big sisters. 



 A little bossy.

Doesn't prefer to cuddle nearly as much as her Mama would like her too.

But still gives good kisses.


Ellie Jane is one. perfect. lady.

I know I am losing credibility fast because it seems like I say this all the time about our kids but if I were to write a list of Bensons top five favorite things chewing on a toothbrush and being outside would be on the top of that list for sure!
