Eloise was acting TWO the whole week before she turned two. Screaming, hitting, running away. One morning, while I chased The Woo outside after she bolted during breakfast, a Greek woman stopped me with a huge, adoring smile for Eloise: “She will be the blessing of your life! In her, you have a friend forever.” Now I remind Eloise of this every so often.
She especially loves to snuggle at the beach. She likes to hold hands. She pats people on the head if they seem down. She likes to play with squinkies, cars, crayons. She is left handed. She likes apples, oranges, apple sauce, milk, butter, and sometimes toast and chicken nuggets.
