Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs in my field, since the payment is pure love.

One of Elliana's favorite activities is to play on the computer, or as she calls it, the "pute". Here she even had a cup of coffee while she worked (ok so the cup was empty, but it still looked cute).

Happy Easter!

We had an amazing Easter this year. Of course, the Easter Bunny visited the Tozzi house and brought Elliana lots of goodies!
The day started off a little rough with church. Unfortunately, Elliana wasn't feeling very good (allergy season in Ohio has hit). Sitting still and cooperating just weren't in the books!
After our attempt at church, we headed to Grandma and Grandpa's house for Easter dinner. Elliana discovered the joy of Jello jigglers!
Given the monsoon that has hit our area recently, an Easter egg hunt outside was out of the question. But Grandma's living room proved to be a suitable place to hunt eggs! None of us expected that at 20 months Ellie would get the concept of finding eggs and putting them in the basket. Always amazing us and exceeding our expectations, Elliana figured it out right away! She thought it was so much fun.
Elliana also discovered the joy of what is inside the Easter eggs. M&Ms! Notice the chipmunk cheeks!
Happy Easter from our entire family!

Me and My Shadow

Feeding Herself

Feeding herself yogurt...
The aftermath...

A Family of Red's Fans

Stop and Smell the Flowers

Too Cool!

Her future's so bright, she's gotta wear shade!

Little Cleaning Lady

Elliana has turned into quite the little cleaning lady. She loves to Swiffer the floor for mommy. And she has even taught Julius to Swiffer! My floors have never been so clean.

Spring is in the Air!

Despite the near monsoon we have experienced in Ohio this spring, we have had a few nice days that allowed us to get outside and play. Elliana has been enjoying some of her favorite outdoor activities. Like...
And despite daddy's best weed killing efforts, pointing out the one that was able to sneek in! She pointed to the dandelion and said, "Uh oh".
Hopefully there will be more nice spring days for us to play!

Easter Pictures

This past week we had Elliana's Easter pictures taken. Of course she did amazing as usual. And of course mommy spent way too much money again!
A little personality/attitude in this shot.
Just gorgeous. Love the red curls!
And of course we had to have Julius in a few shots. She loves her "Ju-Ju".
Smelling the flowers

Just Being Ellie!

Elliana is getting so big! She loves to play and always wants to help mommy around the house.
Grandpa made an Ellie sized Swiffer so she could help clean.
Helping mommy bake a cake for a friend's birthday. She loves to "cook" (and she tells us when she wants to cook).
Anyone seen grandpa?


Finally some updates. Sorry it has been so long. For anyone who didn't know, I was in the hospital for 5 days. Ended up having my appendix and gallbladder out mid-March. So needless to say there haven't been any updates. But here they are!
