Ellie the hoarder

By now, you probably know that Ellie is a little hoarder. She can't go in any different room or area of the house without brining her 'things'. She's like a bag lady, only this bag lady brings a live baby too.

Here's a picture of Ellie's 'things'.  I pointed things out to make it a little easier, sorry about all the arrows!

She ALWAYS has to have her Hello Kitty purse (it holds a lot of random things too like at least 5 or 6 big legos, a little naked Cinderella doll, puzzle piece numbers, her baby's dress and diaper (she doesn't put these on her baby, ever), a crayon or two and whatever other random thing of the day it is.  She is also obsessed with her 'blue' teething ring (which should belong to Jack); she carries this everywhere, and I mean everywhere (grocery store, skiing, bath tub, and to bed). She also has both her Hello Kitty dolls (the pink one which sleeps with her and the white one, which gets the shaft on the chair in her room). I had to limit the items in her bed at night, it was getting out of control. And her blanket is another #1 prize - it's kind of buried here. So, now that Ellie likes Jack to come with to room to room, including her bath time if he is awake and available, he needs his things too, which include his chair, nukie and any toy I can grab.

Here is a video of Ellie singing and entertaining Jack while she takes a bath. It's pretty funny. She is singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

  1. how funny! cole does this too - must be a toddler "thing." i considered getting him a fanny pack to stuff everything in but since his items include 4 blankets he really would need a rolling suitcase!
