With a little inadvertent help from mom and dad, Ellie went very high on the helicopter ride! We made sure her bar was pushed in tight... but that's apparently the position that makes the car go up once the ride gets moving. Ellie loved it while we watched nervously from below!
And here we all are being cheesy before our choo-choo ride around the park. We rounded out the evening with a stop at the Frozen Custard by our house. Ellie requested chocolate ice cream. She finished her small and then helped mom and dad finish our large serving of mint chip. Happy girl!
I took her to the doctor today for a 2-year checkup. The doc said she seems to be developing great and told us to keep up the good work. She weighed 27.4 pounds (with a diaper full of poop that she managed while we were in the waiting room... sigh). And she is 35 1/2 inches tall. She's around 50th percentile on weight while she's stayed on the 90th percentile for height. I wonder if she's going to be taller than her mom?! Because she's such a skinny the doctor said to wait on switching her to skim milk. I was looking forward to having only one kind of milk to buy at the store... but it looks like we'll be buying 2%, too.
