Avey's been doing very well with her potty training! She's had few accidents and a lot of success! The other day she was doing a little dance in the living room while playing with her crayons, and I asked, "Avey, do you feel like you need to go potty?" She responded, "No, I feel like I need to color." Har har har.
The other night at dinner, Avey told me that there was a monster in her mouth. Upon further inquiry, she revealed that her tongue was a monster that was trying to eat her food before she did. A difficult battle ensued, but Avey ascended triumphant. To show good sportsmanship, she invited her tongue to help her sing a special version of "Rudolf":
She constantly surprises us with her creativity. For example, the other morning, as I was getting ready to go to work, Avey also got ready for work. I asked her where she works, and she said, "Sesame Street":
We spent the afternoon yesterday in nearby Florence, CO, checking out several of the antique shops downtown. We walked by a little shop to see a woman just beginning a painting, and thought we would go watch for a little while. Avey was fascinated by the process, and seemed a bit confused by the woman's interpretation of a bird (a bit abstract). She probably would have stayed for several hours to see the end product, but alas, we had to move on. Now Avey's pretty intrigued by the idea of mixing her watercolors to create new colors. She's an artist in the making for sure.
Things are busy as usual otherwise. Thanks for stopping by!
