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 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! :)

Prim & Proper

The other night we went to dinner at some friends' house. After dinner, the adults played Euchre while the kids did what kids do (make messes in the loudest way possible). About mid-way through the game Ava went up to one of our hosts and said, "Excuse me, can I please have an orange?" This floored us. We've tried to be really good about getting Ava to say please and thank you, but its usually something that's after the fact, like "What do you say?"... "oh yeah, Please". This came out of nowhere and with such good sentence structure and manners that it took us by surprise. I don't have a clue where she learned to say "Excuse me" because we haven't been working on that.

This weekend my Dad and his girlfriend, Rhonda, came down to visit. Coincidentally, we were sitting at the table about to play Euchre when Ava came up to Rhonda and said, "Excuse me, can you please help me?" She wanted Rhonda to go play Barbies with her or something like that.

So it must not be a fluke. Either she's truly turning into a polite young lady or she only does so when we play Euchre. I knew that game was awesome.
