Solar Energy, & Other Important Matters...


Ava Lou has been making me laugh today with these:
"I asked Boo if she wanted my macanoni and she yessed her head!"

"When Abram's eating oatmeal...and I see him squish all that stuff out of his mouth...it just makes me...wanna...THROW UP!"

"Mom, I LOVE handwriting. I am going to do THREE sheets of handwriting today, and still more tomorrow!"

You may think I'm going overboard with the exclamation marks, but that's sooooo Ava. She doesn't walk, she skips; she runs laps around the dining room table. We read in our science book yesterday that if we could harness the sun's energy for 1 second it would power the United States for 9 million years....I think Ava's energy might do the same for the U.S. of A., but it would only power Brynne for 3 seconds.
Brynne, who tells me ten times a day "I'm ready go for my birthday!"
We catch her running laps around the table regularly, too.
At bedtime she tells me "Lemme kiss Abey. Now lemme squeeze him. Now lemme look at him." Then to Daddy, "I just tell you..." and she whispers nonsense in his ear. Yesterday she hopped in a locker at the Community Center where we do swim lessons and we played a good joke on Jonah and Ava ("Where's Brynne go?!")
Not as many constant exclamation marks in the speech with this girl, but they're there when she sings/yells: "I got a date with YOOOOOOUUUUUU TONIGHT!"
(Case in point: Brynne just saw the picture of herself in the locker on this post and said "Oh, Momma, das Boo-Boo. Das soooo cute.")

I wonder where Ava gets her energy?!
I seem to remember another little girl, at one time, who never walked either, she just ran and ran!! Maybe that is why we called her "Scooter"! Love, mom
