i swear three months ago i was saying that ave was in my favorite stage and that it couldn't get better. i was wrong. right now is my favorite. she is hilarious and has me laughing all day. the way she sings in her 'microphone' all the time, and dances to the waka-waka song, and draws and paints for hours, and ask questions about everything. i love it all.
thanks to my friend rosie, i got some good potty training advice and went for it. proud to say she's been diaperless for 2 weeks and most days go by with out a single accident (knock on wood). it was much easier than i expected but there were definatly a few times when i didnt know if it was worth it yet. that little bum gets me everytime.
here are some things avery said that kept us entertained today:
--this morning when ave woke up trae asked her if she slept good, her reply: "yeah, you sleep good?"
--she watched an episode of calliou about loosing teeth so today she took a big white sea shell that her grandpa found, hid it under a pillow and said, "uh-oh, where'd avery's tooth go, mom?"
--trae was eating an omlette this morning and i asked him how it was then she asked, "is it good dad?"
--i called my mom on skype today and the first thing ave blurted out was "oh no! where'd avery's finger go?" as she proceeded to bite it.
--we're trying to teach ave that we go to church to learn about jesus, not just play in nursery, so today when we arrived avery said "play with toys, play with belle.... after jesus, huh?"
i sometimes wonder what goes on in that little brain. curious little thing. whatever it is, i love every second of it.
on a more random note: we might get to move into the new apartment this week. it will be a blessed day whenever it happens and we are praying real hard we're in before christmas. i seriously don't know how much more restaraunt food i can take.
