She's also been repeating words as we've been talking to her, so now she's saying "please" with a little prompting. And "shoe"...I should really get her to try to work on saying "purse" and then "Coach purse, please, Dada?" :) And the other night at the dinner table, I would point to Scott, and say "Dada," which she would happily repeat, smile, and clap. Scott would do the same for me, and she would respond with "No." Ouch. No claps, no smiles, nothing, except for "No." Eventually we got a whole bunch of "Mamas" out of her, but man, it was like pulling teeth. Am I seeing a glimpse of the future when she's 13???
I love the serious expression on her face here.
Scott, Ava, and Darla were goofing around on our bed the other night. I don't know if you can see Darla's eyes in this picture but they are bright red...it looks like she's lurking in the background waiting to attack Ava.
Ava was giving Darla all sorts of love and hugs...
Spanky ran under the bed so he wouldn't have to join in the fun.
I bought a jug of Mr. Bubbles so our bubble count is now way higher than it usually is...more for Ava to eat!
We went back to the Kaposia playground tonight, where Ava not only matched the equipment, but she attempted to climb up the slide. She became incredibly frustrated, so we helped her along the way.
Scott was having fun, too! Notice Ava in the background picking up a Slurpee cup. I was able to grab it from her before she could drink from it. Yuck! Hello people, there's a trash not more than 20 feet away!
