I am such a slacker! No, wait, that's not true. We've just been busy. But, I have been giving some serious thought on how to post my pics from Europe on here, without it being too overwhelming. I have a few ideas, but may not get to it until after Thanksgiving.
In the meantime, know that our little Ava is still hilarious, cracking us up every day with her funny sayings.
One of my recent favorites is: "Focus, pocus...Mommy appear...Moof!"
What I think she's really saying is: "Hocus, pocus...Mommy disappear...Poof!"
She would say this as she was waving her spoon at me, and then would seem surprised that I was still sitting there. Magic doesn't always work on the first try, I guess!
And the other day, she was feeding herself dinner. As the spoon got closer to her mouth (remember SHE is feeding HERSELF), she cries out, "Let me in! Let me in!" on behalf of the spoon. Both Scott and I just about fell out of our chairs laughing with that one.
That kid is simply awesome.
Even better? The tide has turned, and she has now started folllowing me around. It's now, "Mommy this" and "Mommy that"! After 2.5 years of having a daddy's girl on my hands, it is so nice to have her acknowledge that she has a mommy, and that mommy isn't so bad. :)
I highly doubt I'll post anything else before turkey day, so HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Don't forget to count your blessings, and be grateful for everything you have in your life!
