Excuse me!

Avi doesn't have a large vocabulary, and for those who are not around her all day every day, she's probably very difficult to understand. But, seeing as I am her constant companion, I understand much of what she says. One of her most common phrases is, "Excuse me." (I must say that quite a bit to her.) Avi says it when she wants to get past you, when she hears Ryleigh burp, and when she passes gas. Tonight I was giving the girls a bath. Avi passed gas in the tub, and I tried to take advantage of the teachable moment to ask her, "What do you say?" She replied, "Bubbles!"

What does Papaw have?

Having Avi search for Easter eggs was lots of fun. She was very good at finding the ones I hid. I'll have to get better before next year! The one she had trouble finding was the one Papaw was hiding . . .

Roll Over!

I placed Ryleigh on the floor and headed off to another room. As I came back, Avi was on the floor lifting Ryleigh's shirt and giving her raspberries on her tummy. I wanted to get that on video, so I ran to the other room for the camera. I crawled on the floor around the bed so they wouldn't see me taping. Avi was no longer giving raspberries. Instead, she was helping Ryleigh roll over. You'll also hear the microwave or oven beep. It is a slightly delayed reaction, but that is what makes her jump up and run off to see what is ready to eat. What a kid!
