New Baby Boy Bennett

First words out of Ava's mouth when she saw Bennett through the Nursery window: "Aww, I want to be nice to him!"

    I don't think you're allowed to say "finally" unless your kids don't start walking until around...ahem...age 2. Way to go, Ellie!!

Messy Eater

How can Ellie be such a messy eater that I have to clean her armpits after lunch?

Gaseous Emission

Tonight Doni, Ava, and I went to see Shrek: Forever After while Ellie stayed home with a babysitter. Ava had been kinda gassy for whatever reason with little toots and flubs. However, with about 20 minutes left in the movie, Ava lets out this 8 second juicy-sounding wonder of a fart. If I'm not being clear enough, it wasn't subtle. Girl ripped it!

Doni and I were on either side of her laughing. In the span of that one fart Ava looked at each of us two or three times and said "What?" each time. That girl has some class!

As I'm writing this she just ripped one on the couch and said, "Dad, I tooted." I am not making this up.

Almost One

I don't really have any updated information about Ellie so I thought I would upload some pictures. We are very excited for her first birthday! Though, Ava may try to over shadow her.

    I love the matching clothes you have for the girls. That must be so fun!

    i was holding one of my girls on my lap, looking at the pictures of Ellie. Maya got so excited...kept saying "ba-ba-ba-ba", which i think means baby.

    we need to have another play date soon! now all the girls can actually play together...instead of just lay on the blanket :)

We went to get Ava's ears pierced yesterday. She's been talking about it for a while, but we weren't sure if she'd actually go through with it or not. Yesterday we thought we'd give it a try.

We went to Claire's at the Castleton Mall because, well, where else would you go? That's the only place we could think of. It turns out there is a Piercing Pagoda right outside their entrance, but we came for Claire's, so we went to Claire's.

She sat up in the stool without any problem. They were busy enough that they wouldn't have two workers to do both ears at the same time. I was thinking there was a fair chance we'd be walking out of there with only one ear pierced. You see, Ava doesn't take pain well. A stiff breeze could brush against her knee and she needs a "Ban-Dan" (aka Band-Aid). In all likelihood she only have one ear pierced until she was 16 and then she'd go hog-wild and get her ears, eyebrows, lips, nose, tongue, belly-button, biceps, knuckles, calves, and finger-nails pierced. (Somebody get me a stiff drink.... I just thought of Ava at 16.)

She took it like a trooper though. I had Doni get a compact from one of the racks so that we could show Ava her new earring right after it was put in. The worker got the gun lined up, gave a countdown, squeezed..... and Doni passed out (just kidding). The earring went in and Ava gave a face that said, "Ow OW OOWWW!", but as soon as she saw the earring in place she was game to get the second one in. The worker helped out by moving fast too. No sooner was the first one in than she was getting the second earlobe ready to go. One, two three... and the second one was in. She looked in the mirror and said "They're beautiful!"

Not only did she get earrings, but she also got a couple of suckers and a Build-A-Bear out of the deal. She loves those earrings. However, this morning she woke up tearful saying, "My earrings are messy. (Boo-hoo) They won't sparkle." Apparently she had a bad dream that her earrings went bad or something. I had to have her look in the mirror before she would believe me that they looked as beautiful and sparkly as ever. Take a look for yourself.

    Very pretty! I hope Babolly wants to get hers done someday.

    And "Bad-Dan" is hilarious! :)
